A tiny treasure slips away

Maruya Sushi served its final saba sushi on October 29 after feeding generations of neighbors for the past 45 years. Yoshimi and Kats Oune have retired and closed their take-out sushi shop, which was begun by her mother. The tiny storefront at 1904 Fillmore will become a jewelry shop.

  • The first time I bought sushi at this place was when I was 14 years old, in 1966. I remember walking in this quiet little restaurant where this little Japanese woman was making the sushi all by herself. I loved their inari sushi. It feels a little sad to hear that Maruya Sushi has closed.
