Many foods come to mind as convenient food truck fare, but sushi isn’t one of them. That is, unless you’re former Jun Japanese Restaurant sushi chef Romeo Magat. He opened Roc and Ro Sushi On The Go
“I had the idea about seven years ago,” he says. “It’s got everything a kitchen restaurant would have. It’s basically a kitchen on wheels.” Really, the biggest difference Magat notes is moving the food around when he doesn’t have access to a plug-in for his on-truck cooler.
Magat currently offers an assortment of sushi roll standards, including spicy tuna, Philadelphia and yummy rolls. Half of his menu arrives cold, while the other half, he serves deep-fried. And having made Roc and Ro his full-time gig in mid-January, he plans to expand his offerings and let his ambition grow.
“The latest special I put up on the menu is a lobster roll,” he says as an example. “I use grilled lobster claw meat. That’s a pretty popular one — people go for seconds on that one.”
Currently, he has three regular stops, which he lists on Facebook along with one-off events.
