Nice try Met Market, but this
burrito will fool no-one.
It is clear as day what the grocery store – one I love and respect – is trying to do with the
spicy tuna burrito. It’s just as clear what they actually deliver. This is not a fusion burrito; it’s a gigantic sushi roll.
And when I say it’s not a burrito, I’m being quite literal. I suppose you could claim rice to be a sometimes integral part of the dish, but the here it is wholeheartedly the Japanese take. That’s as close to anything burrito-like about the roll.
It’s an admirable marketing attempt, mind you. I’m sure they meant well, and again, I like Met Market for a number of reasons. Trying to pass a large spicy tuna roll off as a burrito is just not one of them.
Fair is fair, though: it’s a good sushi roll, if not even remotely related to a burrito.
