Hai Street Kitchen Opening on Sansom Credit: Yolanda Chen , Yolanda Chen

Winter is coming, and so are sushi burritos.

Hai Street Kitchen is slated to open its second location at the new retail development at 40th and Sansom streets in December. The Japanese restaurant features customizable oversized sushi rolls and bowls that can include chicken or steak instead of fish.

"We go by our customers, a lot of our customers are from [Penn]," said Danielle Condello, the manager at the 18th and Chestnut location. "We’re all very excited and ready for it."

Condello recommended first-time diners try the "screaming tuna" and the "slammin' salmon" rolls, which are known to be big sellers. With giant sushi rolls offered, the eatery is known for being the Philadelphia source of a sushi burrito.

While the new Hai Street Kitchen location will keep the same menu as its Center City counterpart, there is a possibility that hours will extend from the usual 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. to be open later on weekends.

The restaurant will be neighbors with Zesto Pizza, Dunkin' Donuts and Jake's Sandwich Board.

"We definitely want to bring it over there and help a lot of the Penn students out," Condello said.
