Rolling with Diaz: A Sushi Tale

Rolling with Diaz: A Sushi Tale

Back in the day, before selfies and food blogs ruled the scene, Manuel Diaz, the adept sushi artisan, dedicated himself to refining his craft and expanding his expertise. Fast forward to 2022, Diaz Kitchen & Sushi Bar quietly sprouted its roots at 118 Central Ave SW, Albuquerque, NM. No grand opening fireworks, just a humble spot serving up sushi that spoke for itself.

Picture this – a small joint, born out of a love for rolling rice and fish into bite-sized delights. Diaz wasn't a grand plan; it was a spontaneous dream to share our sushi passion with the friendly folks of Albuquerque. Our doors opened, not with a bang, but with the quiet anticipation of something special about to unfold.
