Calling all sushi lovers! If you’re looking for an exciting way to experience your favorite sushi creations, we’ve got the place for you. Yuzu Sushi Co. is Michigan’s first sushi burrito and poke concept restaurant, and they are known for their sushi burritos.

Both are great alternatives to the sushi roll, and Yuzu Sushi Co. has been a popular spot since it opened its doors in 2016.
