Big Sushi: A Review of Buredo!9:00 AM
Note: Bonjour to the regular readers of Confetti Casserole! My name is Rachel Emmons and I am Abby's younger sister. I will be filling in for her while she is on hiatus.
I don't know how to do crafts (if you don't count macaroni art) and I can only make food that can be cooked in a microwave*. However, only a short Metro ride away from my college lies the nation's capitol, and a curious restaurant named Buredo. This is a story about that restaurant.
At this point, I should probably explain what Buredo’s wares are. They sell sushi burritos. This food trend has spread to many large cities in the U.S. from the original in San Francisco to iterations in New York City and Los Angeles. It varies in execution but is, at its essence, a burrito-sized sushi.
|Buredo is just past the red bus and around the corner.|
|Salmon sashimi, asparagus, pea shoot leaves, picked red onion, |
daikon, katsuo, mirin crunch, toasted sesame mayo. $10.75 USD.

red tobiko, sriracha mayo. $11.75 USD.
|Yellowfin tuna & salmon sashimi, cucumber, pickled cabbage,|
green onion, tempura crunch, unagi sauce. $11.75 USD.
The location we went to was on 14th Street NW and was right across the street from the McPherson Square Metro stop. However, if you are in the area for Embassy Row, they have a location on Connecticut Avenue NW. It is roughly halfway between the Dupont Circle and Farragut North Metro stations.

*That's not true but college really cramps your style when it comes to Top Chef aspirations.
