Downtown Mountain View gets new sushi bar

Uploaded: Nov 22, 2019
A sushi restaurant has opened inside Mervyn's Lounge in downtown Mountain View, replacing a boba shop.

Umai Sushi Bar is serving udon, sushi rolls, nigiri, tonkatsu curry rice and other traditional Japanese fare at 236 Castro St. It replaced Teaspoon, a milk tea shop that appears to be reopening down the street at 134 Castro St., the former longtime home of Hangen Szechuan. (Before Teaspoon, there was J Love Burger, which served fusion ramen burgers.)

While a banner announcing a hot pot restaurant called Three Kingdoms appeared at the Hangen Szechuan months ago, a more recent "coming soon" sign now indicates an outpost of Teaspoon will open there. The address is also listed as a location on Teaspoon’s website. The owners of Teaspoon did not immediately return a request for comment.

Teaspoon runs 12 locations, including in Palo Alto, Los Altos and Redwood City, with more slated to open soon.

Teaspoon CEO Wei Fan is also the founder of U.S. Boba Company in Hayward, described as the first company in the world outside of Taiwan to make its own boba. The company’s boba is served at all Teaspoon shops as well as locations of the popular Boba Guys.
