In 2013, Maruya was the first Japanese Omakase in San Francisco's Mission District. We are minimalist in our sushi presentation. We maintain the traditional notion of sushi presentation. Our omakase dishes reflect the changes of the season. Our appetizer dishes are Japanese inspired and unique to Maruya.
Continuing along the line of presenting a glimpse of Japanese culture through its dishes, we now present Shojin Ryojori Inspired Dinner Set. It is a vegetable based set menu. The Shojin Ryori dishes are usually type of food that are commonly found at Japanese Temples.
Since its inception, the owners of Maruya, Emiko and Ray, strive to strike a balance in their lifestyle. As Emiko and Ray are passionate about promoting a glimpse of Japanese culture through Maruya's omakase and vegetarian dishes, they are also an avid long-time Aikido practitioners. The concept of "blending" found in aikido philosophy lays the foundation on how Maruya stands apart.
