Temaki means ‘hand rolled’ goodness made out of a single sheet of nori; sushi rice and a m manner of other delightful fillings rolled up into a cone. Temaki (est 2016) is Glasgow’s answer to a spurious offspring of Mexico and Japan, hence the so called sushi burrito – ramen and katsu’s all feature here. Why wouldn’t this work since the East and the West have existed harmoniously together before? Nikkei cuisine is a case in point, the beautiful lovechild of Japan and Peru. I’m digressing. We came here for the sushi burrito’s, that are essentially a butch maki roll with ingredients nowt to do with Mexico. It didn’t matter as it was exactly what we needed to soak up our whisky pickled innards from a day of sampling at the Old & Rare Whisky Show in the Town Hall across the road – how ironic that it’s actually neighbours with a burrito bar!
I went for the BBQ eel £8.50 sushi burrito, just like the others, it was cut diagonally, leaving a cross section of all it’s guts – a good ratio of salad that was all about fresh crunch, sticky rice and meaty eel was a treat to eat.
When did I go? Feb 2017
The damage: £10 per head
The good: If you fancy a break from the norm, ie the oh so predictable sandwich and crisp combo, grab yourself a sushi burrito. It’s probably a damn sight tastier than your average sanger. (That’s what we thought at the time anyway). They do ramen and katsu too.
The bad: Not much that I could see.
Would I go again? Yes
