Sushi comes in all shapes and sizes. Rolls, hand rolls, inside-out rolls, fish on rice, and just fish in the case of sashimi. Modern chefs have redefined the forms that sushi-inspired foods can take, from poke bowls that were popularized in Hawaii in the 1970s to sushi burritos that rose to fame in San Francisco in the 2000s. Now, there’s another fusion food with sushi in the title for Japanese-food-lovers to try — sushi donuts.

Sushi donuts are exactly what they sound like — circular discs of rice with a hole in the center that’s topped with raw fish and other sushi toppings, such as spicy sauce and sesame seeds. And one restaurant chain, Poke Burri, is mastering the craft.

Poke Burri originally opened in Atlanta, Georgia, in 2016. As the name suggests, poke was its focus. Soon, the chain started garnering attention and winning competitions and awards. Poke Burri now has 10 locations across the US, including four restaurants in Atlanta, two outposts in Houston, Texas, and a restaurant on the way in Orlando, Florida.

In addition to all different types of poke bowls, sushi burritos, and sushi donuts, Poke Burri also has a secret menu that’s sure to keep customers guessing — and satisfied — with all of the creative fusion foods the restaurant has concocted. Some of the items on the secret menu include sushi pizza, sushi corndogs, sushi sandwiches, kimchi or jalapeno arancini, fried ramen carbonara, and sweets like matcha beignets and matcha and ube ice cream sandwiches.

Long story short, if you have a favorite food that doesn’t typically include raw fish or traditional Asian flavors, Poke Burri has probably found a way to sushi-fy it.
