When owner Jinyao Huang first started Yoshi Sushi four years ago, he proved to the world that premium quality sushi doesn’t need to be served in an exclusive 12-seat custom-dining experience just to be fresh and delicious. Instead he brought quality sushi to people across the Bay Area in his signature truck, serving up fresh cuts of salmon, tuna, and other oceanic eats to his loyal customers.
When the truck first launched, people were very curious about it. Critics doubted that a mobile food truck could match the quality of a fine sit-down restaurant but they quickly changed their minds after trying one of Yoshi’s drool-worthy sushi rolls. Would-be detractors of the food truck soon found themselves humbled and surprised by the quality of the food they were enjoying. Of course, while it’s not necessary to have a sit-down restaurant in order to serve high-quality sushi, it’s certainly nice to have one.
While Jinyao proved to his customers that it’s possible to make great sushi at any time and any place, fans have been waiting for a full-time store where they can visit regularly and enjoy their favorite meals. And now, after four years of successful operation of the food truck, it appears that Yoshi Sushi is finally getting it’s own full-time brick-and-mortar location at 599 E Calavera Boulevard in Milpitas.
The new Yoshi Sushi restaurant will be replacing Sushi Maru, which previously operated at the location. Sushi Maru was an extremely popular spot for locals, but tragically closed in 2018 when the owner passed away. The spot has remained vacant since, and curious residents have been wondering what might replace it. Thankfully, the wait is over and a delicious new sushi restaurant will be taking its place.
No word has been given yet on when Yoshi plans to launch its first store as they are still too early into the process to finalize details. The truck, however, remains operational.
