Everything you need to know about NYC's newest sushi burritos

There's a new sushi burrito in town.

In July, New York was #blessed with Umi Temakaria's sushi burritos, the first NYC rendition of a legendary mash-up popular on the worse coast.

Now, Hai Street Kitchen, a Philadelphia-based fast-casual Japanese restaurant, has popped up at Broadway Bites to share five of their most popular sushi burritos. Plus, wasabi guac (extra).

The line outside Hai Street Kitchen is noticeably long.

Nom, nom, nom... bite into a sushi burrito!

The Hai Street Chicken is made with freshly crisp chicken katsu, black pepper teriyaki sauce, romaine, pickled red onion, red cabbage and green papaya salad. Pair it with a sweet green tea (matcha!) and you have a meal much more impressive than that new chicken and sweet tea restaurant that opened a few blocks north.
