Burrito San opens in Downtown Miami

Experience a new redefined Pan-Asian fast casual experience in Downtown Miami – 119 SE 1st Ave called Burrito San. Their mission is to provide you with innovative chef-driven asian fusion cuisine. They strive to offer not only the best taste experience but also the highest quality ingredients available. Burrito San sources local and organic ingredients wherever possible. Their poultry and pork are hormone and antibiotic free. They use exclusively grass-fed beef, line caught tuna, and wild Alaskan salmon. They know there’s more to a meal than just food so Burrito San offers a wide array of micro- brewed and craft beverages including a mostly local beer selection, small batch soda brands, and boutique wines and sakes. Here is more information about Burrito San :

 

According to Urban Daddy :

“If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. Apparently, these guys didn’t get the memo. That’s actually great news for you, because their pedigree includes names like Lan Pan-Asian and Yuga. So if anyone’s going to mess with your burrito, it’s this crew. A casual workday lunch. A quick refueling between bar stops with friends. Go here. You’ll step into this simple, green-and-gray spot, queue up and place your order for “burritos.” Yes, “burritos.” See, they’re… different. Instead of a flour wrap, they’re using seaweed here—kind of like a really massive sushi roll. And they’re stuffed with rice and things like eggs, crisp spiced chicken, Yukon Gold potatoes and crunchy eggplant.”

 

According to New Times :

“The concept here is simple: Nine fist-size rolls can be filled with white or brown rice and an array of accoutrements. The Mt. Fuji ($11.50) offers cubes of velvety bigeye tuna with avocado, masago, cucumber pickles, scallions, and crisp wontons. The rest of the options are cooked. The Filipino breakfast ($10) packs braised pork with scrambled eggs, roasted garlic, and pickled onions inside a seaweed wrapper. There’s also a vegetarian, tofu-filled choice ($9) with avocado, carrots, and wontons, as well as a Vietnamese-inspired burrito ($9) with lemongrass chicken, green papaya salad, jalapeños, peanuts, and fish sauce. Burrito San sits right in the fast-casual Zeitgeist and — with its slick lime-green-and-gray design — seems almost mass-produced and ripe for nationwide expansion. It’s similarly branded as a healthful, all-natural kind of joint. Co-owner Samuel Getz admits the bulk of the ingredients come from Sysco; however, he says he worked with the wholesale giant to get hold of line-caught tuna, wild Alaskan salmon, and Australian grass-fed beef. ” written by Zachary Fagenson.

 

According to Edible South Florida :

“Johnson Teh and Kazu Abe’s fast-casual Lan Pan Asian at Dadeland Station and Yuga in Coral Gables have a dedicated following for their fresh, consistently tasty dishes that truly span different Asian cuisines, from sushi to noodles and Vietnamese wraps to Filipino food, Korean and inventive mash-ups like battered and fried tuna sandwiches, made of grilled tuna with rice and seaweed and yellow curry vermicelli, dotted with Chinese sausage, shrimp and peppers. Now, they’ve brought a new idea to downtown Miami: Burrito San, fat sushi-style rolls that are filled with traditional sashimi tuna and brown or white rice, but also other unconventional choices, like crispy masala chicken or braised pork, scrambled egg, banana ketchup and roasted garlic cloves, dubbed the Filipino Breakfast roll.”

 

According to Yelp :

“I wanted to take a picture of my food to post but it was so good  I devoured it immediately! I wasn’t sure about the concept but Burrito San really played well with the Asian ingredients and the Mexican formats.  I like the fact that they have a small menu because the ingredients are very fresh and the flavors are developed so well. I Ordered take out and got: Asian nachos – The braised pork was so tender and the cilantro cream sauce went perfectly with it. Not to mention how fantastic the crispy wontons are as the nacho base, Beefy Korean roll – Strong Korean flavor that’s well balanced with the Kimchee and garlic beef, Mt. Fuji roll – A delicate roll with Fresh tuna and nice crunch with the wontons. The restaurant Itself is decorated with clean, modern lines and the set up is comfortable. But, what matters most is the food and they are nailing it. I would definitely come back and recommend this place! Bottom line: tasty, flavorful, fresh food at a good price” written by Adriana C.
