The first 125 customers will receive a card for a free sushi burrito (to be used at a later date) and 25 of those customers will also receive a free burrito a week for a year. Martinez says he already has more than 150 RSVPs on Komotodo's Facebook invitation for the event.
Martinez chose the name Komotodo as a Japanese-style spelling of "como todo," Spanish for "I eat everything." The menu features more than a dozen burrito configurations, from the Sunrise Sumo with yellowfin tuna, surimi, masao roe, veggies and peanut sauce, to El Frito Suave, a deep-fried roll with salmon, tempura asparagus, veggies and cream cheese. Prices range from $8 to $13.
There are also $8 salads with choices of proteins (chicken, pork, carne asada, shrimp and tuna, to name a few), and sides including avocado fries, wakame, shrimp tempura and edamame.
The dining room is compact, with seating for twenty or so, but Writer Square recently installed patio tables with umbrellas right outside Komotodo's doors, so guests will be able to enjoy their burritos outdoors when the weather is nice.
Martinez hired chef Dustin Brafford to oversee the menu and kitchen; they've been prepping sushi burritos for friends and family this week to get ready for the grand opening. Komotodo will be open seven days a week from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m., with late-night hours on Friday and Saturday.
