About El Sushi Loco
The brainchild of Frank Mendoza, El Sushi Loco is a place to bond with family and a lively place to hang out with friends. El Sushi Loco may be the truest expression of east meeting west, with tastes and textures both exotic and familiar. The flavors and ambiance provide the perfect place for a festive and tasty lunch or dinner.
El Sushi Loco History
Frank Mendoza purchased a street vendor food cart off a Craigslist add. He paid $1200 and begun selling his unique cuisine on the streets of Tijuana, Mexico. Mexican sushi, is not your usual street-food and was a hard sell to both Tijuana’s tourists and locals. The undeniably unique taste required a unique population of foodies for Frank Mendoza’s dreams to be fulfilled. In 2010 Mendoza pushed his cart across the border and into the United States, eventually setting up shop on the streets of Los Angeles. In its food-cart days, the Mexican-Asian fusion food concept was called Sushi Island and Frank Mendoza, his wife, and his nephew developed the brand tirelessly, serving high quality Mexican sushi and mariscos.
The success of Sushi Island further fueled Mendoza’s desire and he renamed the business El Sushi Loco. 2011 saw the opening of their first brick and mortar restaurant in La Puente. Soon after, they opened another branch in Downey, and most recently Mendoza opened his third restaurant in Pomona, CA.
