Now, you can add Mitate to the list. After a series of successful popups, the plant-based sushi purveyor has announced plans to open a food cart. Mitate will launch its first permanent spot at the CORE cart pod on Southeast 82nd Avenue in June.
Known for its elaborate rolls topped with sake-poached pears and black truffle sauce, Mitate held its first pop-up last October. It quickly gained a following, selling out regularly at its first host, Ruse Brewing, and then at Mestizo.
A food cart isn’t the only thing the fast-growing restaurant has planned. Co-owner Nino Ortiz recently told Eater that Mitate plans to open a brick-and-mortar, too, hopefully by next summer.
In the meantime, you can look for updates on Mitate’s Instagram.
