About Temaki Bar

Temaki Bar: Handroll, Sushi, Sake, 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. Literally translating to “hand roll,” Temaki Bar celebrates the tradition that all perfect hand rolls should be eaten within seconds of when the chef passes 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 for guests, highlighting the freshest seafood featuring blue crab, yellowtail, salmon, and the restaurant’s signature Tuna Roll with irresistible spicy sauce alongside a glass of sake or Japanese beer.
