Uma Temakeria is a dream come true: delicious and healthy fast food. That’s not an oxymoron, it’s something to help you stick to your health resolutions for 2017. With hand rolled sushi wraps and burritos, and inspired by the temakerias of Brazil, the two Uma Temakerias in Manhattan are both an oasis of freshness for sushi lovers, fish eaters, and lovers of chirasi bowls. They’re also staffed by the friendliest people on the planet.

Acclaimed chef, Chris Jaeckle (all’onda), serves tasty and fresh menu of made-to-order sushi hand rolls. The selection encompasses temaki, New York City’s first sushi burrito, and chirasi bowls. Also, customers can choose from a chef’s selection of items or create their own from a healthy array of sustainably-sourced seafood and seasonal vegetables. Sustainably-sourced seafood is everything! Find ginger green tea, Japanese dessert Pocky sticks, veggies, and much more; check out http://www.umatemakeria.com for more info.
