Josephine somehow found this food truck called Jogasaki Sushi Burrito. She was telling me and a few other friends how we have to go check it out. Stacy checked Yelp to see what it was all about and after Yelping for about a second, she fell in love. It was probably love at first sight for both Stacy and Josephine.
I on the other hand was not in love nor excited as much as they were because I’m actually not a huge fan of sushi compared to them or anyone else in general. I just started eating spicy tuna about a month ago. I do have to say that spicy tuna is pretty awesome blossom.
So Yelp showed some good numbers and reviews about Jogasaki Sushi Burrito. It currently has 4 out of 5 stars with more than 250+ reviews. Downside about this sushi burrito truck is that they only serve around the LA area. For all Orange County residents that means one hour drive for some 4 star sushi burrito.
That one hour drive wasn’t going to stop us from getting some sushi burrito. So spontaneously one night, Stacy said “Let’s go!” Just like that, we went.
Jogasaki Sushi Burrito truck was located on Palm and Sepulveda which is part of West LA. It’s on the side where there’s CVS, Trader Joe’s, and Beard Papa’s. Luckily, there was no crowd when we got there. It seems that the sushi burrito was popular at one point but not so much anymore.

The three of us shared the Spicy Tuna Nacho. It’s a $6 Doritos Nacho Cheese chips topped with spicy tuna, avocado, and eel sauce. What? Doritos chips and spicy tuna together? Yeah, it was a weird combination but it worked. The cheese was subtle to the whole nacho experience.
Would I get this again? Probably not. For the price we paid, we weren’t expecting Doritos. Also, it was just not worth the $6 because they didn’t give us enough spicy tuna for all the chips we had left. Though it was creative to use Doritos Nacho Cheese chips, we felt that it wasn’t good enough to want more.
Fortunately, the sushi burrito turned out a lot better than the Spicy Tuna Nacho. I ordered their popular Jogasaki Burrito 2A for $12. This had crab meat, spicy tuna, avocado, cucumber, and shrimp tempura wrapped with soy paper.
At first, I didn’t think the burrito was going to fill me up because it was skinny. It’s not thick like a Chipotle burrito. Surprisingly, it was well stuffed with the crab meat and spicy tuna. A $12 burrito is quite expensive but it’s a sushi burrito so it’s almost reasonable that it’s $12. I’d have to say that they give you more in this sushi burrito compared to what you get at a restaurant with regular sushi. You might be paying a little more at a restaurant because of tip and tax than at Jogsaski Sushi Burrito Truck, but of course it all depends on how fancy and pricey the sushi restaurant is.
I definitely would get this again and wouldn’t mind trying anything else on the menu. Though I felt stuffed, I felt pretty healthy! Josephine and Stacy felt healthy also! Josephine said that if Jogasaki was in Orange County, she would probably eat a sushi burrito once a week because it’s that good. Hopefully they’ll stop by Orange County one day.
Since we were feeling pretty healthy, we thought we should even out the healthiness with dessert. So we headed to Little Tokyo for some Cafe Dulce. I got my Dulce Latte and some rotis for the family. Stacy got a hot Hong Kong style milk tea which she wasn’t too happy about. She said it was too rich and heavy in flavor. She thinks that it might better to get it cold next time.
After getting our sweets, we were ready to head back home. As we were driving down the 5 freeway, we realized that we were going to drive by Anaheim. And you know what’s in Anaheim? There’s M&M Donuts! We decided to be spontaneous again for the night and hit up M&M Donuts for some duffins. I haven’t used the word duffins in a long time. If you don’t remember what a duffin is, it’s what Briana and I call blueberry donuts that taste similar to the form of a muffin. If you haven’t heard of M&M Donuts still, then shame on you! Just kidding. Check out Yelp for their reviews.
By the time we got there it was about 9:30PM. I knew we were going to be there for awhile since we got there late. We waited for about an hour to get our blueberry donuts. I forgot how painful the wait can be but we made it through. Remember, the drive-thru is always better and faster than standing in line. Once we got our blueberry donuts, I had two bites of it and then I was done for the night. I didn’t want to overeat since it was pretty late. It was enough YOLO for the night.
Stacy and Josephine, I can’t believe we did all of that within the span of 5 or 6 hours. Let’s not do it again…I ate too much that night but it was definitely fun hanging out with you both! Ok, maybe we’ll do it again because it was fun.
