From Sushi Daruma's Facebook page
Keeping track of the new food trucks of downtown Minneapolis is tough—now you see them, now they’ve driven away! So when I saw new Sushi Daruma parked next to long-standing food truck Hibachi Daruma I pounced. Where’d you come from? Whaddaya got?
Turns out Sushi Daruma has been out for about three weeks, and is a sister truck to Hibachi Daruma, and for now the two go around together and share one iPad to process credit cards. Okie dokie! To date the truck offers about half a dozen sushi rolls and nothing else. I tried two of the rolls, the $10 sake roll, with fake crab inside and salmon and avocado outside, and the $11 white tiger roll, with spicy tuna and avocado in the middle and escolar and masago outside. They were: fine! Just totally middle-of-the-road sushi, neither very bad nor very good, just: fine. Better than meh, worse than good. Fine. But sort of tiny.
See the picture? That’s $21 worth of sushi! Kinda steep. Kinda really steep! In comparison, the sit-down sushi lunches of downtown Minneapolis are way better; the sushi bento lunch at Dong Hae is only $15, and there’s a $10 bento non-sushi lunch now at the downtown Origami, and you could add $11 of sushi and be eating much better. That said, if you told me you were bringing me lunch from Daruma Sushi I’d feel: happy. If you told me we were going to an event and the only food truck would be Daruma Sushi I’d feel: fine. And that’s my official critic’s review from one early lunch at a new truck: It’s here, it’s pretty good, make a note of it.
