A sushi pop-up restaurant in Kissimmee, Florida, is bringing together Japanese and Puerto Rican flavors with some special mofongo-crusted Puerto Rican sushi rolls.
Foodbeast correspondent El Foodie Boricua captured some of these beauties coming to life in the video above. The spot making these happen is Sushi Bosu, which has been running out of Grillers Puerto Rico in Kissimmee for the last couple of years.
The concept came to life via Chef José Antonio, who opened Grillers and has been a Kissimmee restaurant fixture since moving there in 2017. He puts together flavors from Puerto Rico and the Caribbean into Sushi Bosu's rolls.
This includes wrapping some of them in mofongo, a Puerto Rican dish consisting of mashed fried plantains. One of their signatures is the Big Bosu, which also has churrasco steak, cream cheese, and shrimp.
Some of these rolls, like the viral Arañita roll, get coated in a layer of crispy fried plantains instead. That one also has churrasco steak inside, plus octopus for garnish.
There are plenty of other intriguing rolls on the menu, like a Guavate roll featuring morcilla blood sausage, or the, El Esmandaíto Roll, stuffed with steak, sweet plantains, and mofongo, and topped with spicy mayo and crispy pork rinds.
Chef Jose's goal is for Sushi Bosu to spread to pop-up sushi bars throughout the Orlando area. For now, you can get the sushi by stopping into Grillers PR in Kissimmee, or by ordering via Toast on the Grillers page.
