1213 Connecticut Ave, NW

Nice – the former Pinkberry space (and don’t forget Pampillonia Jewelers represented here for many years before that) is going to become a second location for Buredo who opened their first “Burrito-size sushi rolls” spot at 825 14th Street, NW over the summer. Ed. Note: 825 14th Street, NW used to be a Yogenfruz. God willing Buredo will take over all the former frozen yogurt spots in the city! For those not familiar their website says:

“Buredo (pronounced “bur-EE-doh”) is a local DC establishment, owned by two life-long childhood friends and DC natives who were looking for a unique, fresh lunch option. Our handheld, burrito-size sushi rolls feature Asian and other globally-inspired ingredients and flavors. Using seasoned rice and traditional nori, we roll our sushi burritos to order – perfect for the health-conscious crowd on the go looking for some good, clean eating with a twist.

We use the highest-quality, all-natural ingredients (no artificial dyes or flavors here) which we prepare daily to roll a fresh, hearty and flavor-packed sushi burrito. Veggies play a starring role as well – we are passionate about letting them shine through their natural flavors and textures, and love to pack a punch with pickling too.

Buredo is bringing a new way of eating sushi to the nation’s capital. Always remember to eat your veggies, eat more fish and eat Buredo!”

And you can check their menu here too.

    Maybe I’m being close-minded, but this seems so gross. Like, nah, not at all, thankyouverymuch.

      I thought the same thing, but I’ve been to their other location a few times and it’s very good. Not gigantic, good rice/filling ratio, good quality ingredients, and well-assembled.

      I am right there with you…it sounds so unappetizing to me.

      I was super skeptical at first but I really like them!

    I haven’t eaten there, but a friend who has said that they’re not really “burrito-sized” — at least, not in the Chipotle sense. She said they’re more like uncut sushi rolls. Said they have good non-fish options as well.
    This is right next door to my kettlebells studio, so I’ll definitely be checking it out for post-workout food once they open.

      I’m glad they aren’t chipotle size! I can’t finish a chipotle burrito in one sitting, and I’d rather not come back for a sushi-rito later.

    Yass! I’ve seen posts of their stuff on Instagram, and it looks yummy. And this is closer to me. Yay!

      And if you don’t like it, you can leave :-D

  • Anon H St

    I want to eat this! But the locations are both so far from me. Come to Union Station/H St please?

      They’re often an option on Uber Eats! Try them that way. They’re tasty!
