"Mutant foods" from the cronut to the ramen burger come and go, disappearing from social media as quickly as they blow up. But San Francisco's passion for the sushi burrito refuses to die.

When we first laid eyes on the mythical sushirrito" on Reddit in 2013, it seemed too good to be true: a sushi roll swollen to the size of a burrito, stuffed with veggies, sauces, rice, and raw fish, and eaten with your hands. Fast-forward four years, and people are still forming lines outside Sushirrito, a Bay Area restaurant chain that claims to be the birthplace of this beastly food.
