The new Temaki Bar Sushi in Encinitas is now open for weekday lunch and has extended its opening days to include Mondays.

Clique Hospitality’s newest restaurant opened late last year in the space formerly housed by EVE on the 101. The stylish and modern hand roll house serves up fresh, locally sourced and sustainable fish alongside an “eclectic” sake program. Temaki, which translates to “hand roll”, celebrates the tradition that hand rolls should be eaten within seconds of when the chef passes it across the counter — while the rice is still warm and the fish, fresh and chilled.

Highlights on the menu include the Dre’s Pop N’ Rock handroll (with real Pop Rocks! candy), the Crispy Bang Bang Shrimp and the Lobsta Queen roll.

Temaki is now serving lunch from Tuesday to Sunday, starting at 11 a.m., featuring a three for $15 handroll special. The restaurant also recently launched the Sake Bomb Startup, with $5 sake bombs on Fridays and Saturdays from 9-11 p.m.

“When we opened Temaki late last year, the community and local businesses welcomed us with open arms. It’s been so exciting to see the restaurant become a gathering place for locals and visitors alike over the past several months,” said Executive Chef JoJo Ruiz. “We’re so grateful for the support and enthusiasm that we have continued to receive from the local Encinitas community.”

Temaki is located at 575 S. Coast Hwy 101,
