Buredo, a D.C. chain that’s known for it’s burrito-sized sushi rolls, is coming to Tenleytown later this year.

The store will be situated between Cava Mezze Grill and Nando’s at 4235 Wisconsin Avenue, according to Buredo’s website.

The local restaurant chain is popular among AU students, says Lissette Rodriguez, a freshman in the College of Arts and Sciences.

“The food is amazing. I love that they combined the idea of a Mexican burrito with Japanese sushi. It’s well-priced and really filling," Rodriguez said. 

The store wraps traditional kinds of fish, combined with vegetables and other ingredients, in a thin layer of seaweed to create the burrito. Currently, the menu has 10 rolls, varying from the “Crazy 88,” which has pork, carrot, kimchi and onions, among others, to “Elle”, a vegan burrito. Prices vary from $12 to $10 for the rolls, while “snacks” include wasabi peas, rice chips and miso soup, which run up to $5.

Previously, AU students had to venture to Franklin Square and more recently Dupont Circle to get sushirritos. Rodriguez says that the addition of Buredo to Tenleytown is much more convenient.

“Having Buredo in Tenleytown would be a great change from all the burger and sandwich places,” Rodriguez said. “I’m gladly waiting for its arrival.”

Though a specific opening date has not been announced, students can expect the chain to be open by the summer of 2017. This location is one of four new D.C. area Buredo restaurants opening in the coming months, according to the website.
