Inside Our Salmon Sushi Burrito

Chef's O-Maki Sushi Burrito

Chef's O-Maki Sushi Burrito

A sustainably-sourced sushi burrito? Who thought it was possible?

Not all sushi burritos are created equal—here at Uma, we only use the freshest ingredients and responsibly-sourced fish. You've probably heard about are awesome Uma-Ritto that customers love so much, filled with tuna, salmon, and a special tobanjan mayo mix. 

But have you tried our O-Maki sushi burrito yet?

It's delicious—a perfect blend of fresh crab, sustainable salmon, apple, seasonal pickle, cucumber, wasabi-ginger and tempura crunch. The salmon that we use is from an organic, closed containment Scottish farm. They also only use non-GMO feed and minimal chemicals. Read more about it here.

NYFW '16 Shows We'll Be Looking Out For

One of the craziest weeks in NYC has just begun. We're not referring to one of the coldest weeks this winter - a low of 3 degrees?! No thanks! We're talking about New York Fashion Week (#NYFW). In honor of the next seven well-dressed days, we are highlighting the designers we're looking forward to most.

YEEZY SEASON 3

Only Kanye West could create such hype around a show. This event is so grand it's being held at Madison Square Garden. Not only will West be debuting his third collaboration with Adidas, he'll also be letting attendees listen to his highly-anticipated eighth studio album currently titled, The Life of Pablo. 

PROENZA SCHOULER

Season after season, the duo behind Proenza leave us in awe of their unique and ultra cool pieces. This year, instead of giving us a taste of what to expect by releasing their Pre-Fall collection, we have been kept in the dark. Which means, this season's show is sure to be on a whole other level of wow. 

ALEXANDER WANG

Wang's shows are notoriously epic. From soundtrack to guest list, every show is hipper than the last. This year is extra special. No longer designing for Balenciaga means Wang can devote 100% of his creative juices to his own brand. Meaning this may very well be Wang's best show yet. 

Let's not forget that temakis make the best fashion accessory. Should you find yourself famished between shows and before after parties, stop by either one of our locations for a temaki to go!

Will You Be My Valentine?

The only thing that we love more than serving up fresh, yummy, and sustainable food is YOU. Whether you're celebrating this V-day with your bae, your bff, your Netflix or us, take comfort in the fact that this holiday is actually historically rooted in something worth celebrating: love. The coolest thing about love is that it signifies different things to different people. That's why we've got you covered with lots of options. Dine in at our two locations, order delivery for you and your +1 *cough, Netflix, cough* or catering for and your entire love squad!

Because what better way to celebrate the day of love than with the greatest match of all time: Temaki and Sake. Happy Valentine's Day!

Our 3 New Year's Resolutions

We’re 19 days into 2016 and we wanted to share the resolutions we made to make this year bigger and better than the last. Our most important goals for this year are:

Sustainability

In 2015, we declared that our seafood would be sustainably sourced. This is more important to us now than ever before. The Earth is constantly evolving, especially as the population expands. We consistently seek and maintain relationships with fisheries that pride themselves in organic practices. It’s a tough job actively maintaining a low carbon footprint while serving up delicious food, but someone’s gotta do it.

Awareness

Serving up healthy and tasty alternatives to fast food is something we take seriously. We want Temaki’s to become a household name and in doing so, we want to continue to spread the word about the culture behind Uma. Temakis are totally like Japanese tacos. And we know everyone will love them just as much as we do. 

Community

In an attempt to spread Uma’s message, we want to leave a positive impression in the hearts (and stomachs) of everyone who has the pleasure of trying our delicious food. We are doing so by catering as many events as you guys will let us! Oh and if you haven’t tried our truffle rice balls you ain’t living right!


Hello Ramen Weather!

Brrrr—New York winter is finally here! And don't worry, we are more than ready. Excited to announce a brand new ramen bowl at our 14th Street & 7th Avenue location, now available for lunch and dinner. We're super pumped about it and hope you are too. This Japanese favorite will have handmade noodles and a special ramen broth recipe, crafted by Chef Chris Jaeckle himself! We can't wait to share it with you.

Choose from miso, spicy miso, or shoyu broth. Topped with kale, snow peas, and a soft-seasoned egg. 

Come visit us at 64 7th Avenue to try it. We hope to see you soon :)
