For the last few years our lives have been turned completely upside down by COVID, COVID, COVID. It dominates everything. With everything your see and read and hear being so bleak, it is hard to imagine that something good could ever come from these horrible times. But something good DID come out of these COVID times. That something good is Temaki Tornado.
Temaki Tornado is food truck that serves street side sushi and rolls around Boulder and the surrounding areas. It was started by two friends and co-workers who worked at a sushi restaurant and they decided to pool their resources and do what they always wanted to do: start [their] own food truck.
This is Tako Bob, the octopus and mascot of Temaki Tornado.
Temaki Tornado is part of a fleet of food trucks operated by the parent company Roaming Hunger. [They] are the culinary community builders who bring together colleagues, friends, family members and strangers through unexpected and joyful moments. The Agency has nearly a decade of experience leveraging [their] propriety data, network and mobile expertise to create unique brand amplification programs designed to inspire action and engagement. From food trucks to mobile DJs to restaurant pop-ups, [they] connect your brand to the right people at the right time.
We discovered Temaki Tornado by accident, when we went for a pint of local brew at Four Noses Brewery with our friends Mike and Lauren. None of us had really eaten, and Four Noses does not have a menu or a kitchen. Instead, they have a selection of different food trucks that come to them throughout the week, offering a wide variety of delicious types of from which to choose. Temaki Tornado was there the night we went. As it turned out, they were just about ready to pack it up for the evening too, and Larry and I just happened to be their last customers. We ordered some sushi rolls and enjoyed them by the firepit. The sushi rolls were very tasty and were a pleasant surprise. We have been very fortunate and have had some very good foods from food trucks all over. We just never know what we are going to find on our adventures.
We all had a pleasant evening and a good time, unwinding after work and starting the weekend off right.
Keep you mind and heart open, and you just never know what good things you will find. Don’t be afraid to try something new or unexpected. Life is full of good surprises. You just have to look for them, and often that means finding them in unexpected places.
