DC was primed to hate Buredo’s gimmicky, over-sized sushi when it first opened. But instead we had to love the jumbo rolls in the shape of its namesake. Trendy? Maybe. Delicious? Always. The crowd favorite by far is the Sophie, made with shrimp tempura, avocado, pickled cabbage, carrot, sesame seeds, red tobiko and Sriracha mayo. Don’t waste your time asking for soy sauce here—you won’t need it (plus they don’t serve it.) Instead, wash your mega-roll down with house-made wasabi peas.
