Just remember, sushi is life!

Japan, where sushi is a way of life, has one of the longest life expectancies in the world, and nutritionists are in unison in agreeing that it’s largely tied to the citizen’s steady diet of clean raw fish, rice and seaweed.

Further, sushi is known to improve gut and heart health, boost the immune system and help with the body’s natural detoxification process.


About Us

Literally translating to “hand roll,” Temaki Bar celebrates the tradition that all perfect hand rolls should be eaten within seconds of the chef passing them across the counter — while the rice is still warm and the fish, fresh and chilled.

In keeping with tradition, Temaki Bar’s hand rolls are prepared counter-side and made-to-order, highlighting the freshest seafood featuring blue crab, yellowtail, salmon, and more.

Temaki will celebrate traditional sushi-making with Chef Jojo Ruiz, local veteran chef and San Diego native at the helm. Ruiz began his career as a sushi chef and is heading back to those roots, with the added bonus of his seafood sourcing and sustainability practices that earned him recognition with the James Beard Foundation as a Smart Catch Leader.
