Temaki San Diego Featured in the Encinitas Advocate!

Have you heard the news? We’ve been featured in the Encinitas Advocate, and they have nothing but great things to say about Temaki San Diego Sushi Bar. It’s one thing for us to pat ourselves on the back, but gloating by proxy in the form of sharing a positive press release is just as great!

Here’s what they have to say about Temaki:

“Temaki Bar: Handroll, San Diego Sushi, Sake opens today in Encinitas. It’s a new concept from Las Vegas-based Clique Hospitality, which also recently opened a second Temaki Bar at the Cosmopolitan Hotel in Las Vegas.

The 38-seat restaurant-bar’s menu is overseen by Clique executive chef JoJo Ruiz. Most of the seating surrounds the central sushi bar, where chefs will prepare food in the traditional temaki style, which is made to order before the customer’s eyes and designed to be consumed immediately while the fish is still cold and the rice is still warm.

Some of Clique’s other San Diego properties are Lionfish Coastal Cuisine, Serea Coastal Kitchen and Joya Kitchen. Open Tuesdays through Sundays, Temaki Bar is at 575 S. Coast Highway 101, Encinitas. Visit temakibarsushi.com

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.
