Authentic Japanese cuisine offered at new Festus food truck | Business

The owner of a food truck that has opened in Festus promises to serve up authentic Japanese cuisine.

The Kasabi Japanese Steak & Sushi food truck opened Monday (Aug. 30) and is stationed at 301 S. Adams St.

“We offer sushi and we make homemade sauce,” said Rizky Handana, owner and manager of the business. “We also have (hibachi) steak, shrimp, chicken, also scallops. We have crab rangoon.”

The menu also includes a variety of rolls, like California rolls, Philly rolls, dragon rolls and volcano rolls

“We have bubble tea,” he said. “That’s tea made with tapioca, milk and fruit flavors. It’s like a shake.”

Handana, 35, who recently moved to Festus, said the food truck on South Adams Street is his third restaurant.

“We also are in Warrenton and in Charleston, Ill.,” he said.

Handana said Festus looked like a prime location for a Japanese eatery.

“I saw there was no Japanese food, especially sushi,” he said. “And, there’s a 12,000 population. We want to serve Festus our delicious food.”

The food truck is stationary at the South Adams Street location, Handana said.

“It’s a permanent location,” he said. “If we’re lucky In the business, we may move into a building.”

Handana said he plans to start out in Festus with a small staff.

“I have three employees,” he said. “I’ll maybe have more later.”

The food truck’s hours are 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays.
