Located near the Laguna Target in Elk Grove, Make Fish Poke & Sushi Burrito serves up poke bowls and sushi burritos. The familiar Wrap & Roll restaurants no longer exists since the owners converted their midtown location to a Make Fish and a car crashed into their former Elk Grove location. The menu and vibe is quite different than its former roots. There is more of a focus on the poke and less on the burritos. The facility seems more modern, and company messages are on the wall. Also, prices for the burritos are $2-$4 higher than the old prices. The burritos on the menu are similar or completely changed from the old menu.
Today, we decided to order the chicken karaage burrito and the tempura shrimp burrito. We did not opt for any poke on this visit. The chicken karaage burrito actually had an adequate amount of crunchy chicken. The sauces and jalapeno really shines in this burrito. Mango chunks freshen up the flavors of the burrito and also adds another texture element. The tempura shrimp burrito was filled with crab meat and tempura shrimp. The shrimp was not very crispy and was more oily. I liked how the crab meat adds additional flavors to the burrito. Unfortunately, each bite of the burrito felt like you were biting into a pile of mush, which was not very appetizing. The burrito is similar to the old Wrap & Roll version with red flakes on the outside, but falls short of its former glory.
Overall, Make Fish Poke & Sushi Burrito serves up fresh food in innovative ways, but falls short on one of the two burritos we tried. As mentioned earlier, prices are noticeably higher than Wrap & Roll, and quantity has not really changed. Service is good during the ordering and delivery process. Each menu item allows you to make a bowl or burrito, so there are plenty of choices. If you haven’t had a sushi burrito yet, give Make Fish a try.
