Soosh is Deja Street Foods new creation, born from a love of sushi.

What’s Going On?

It’s been a bumpy old ride, but I’d love to tell you how it all started.

I set up Deja Brew in March 2019, a mobile coffee shop serving customers at Conyers school attending children’s sporting events at the weekend.

My partner and I had day jobs and at that point, we both worked 7 days a week.

Weather, poor communication, and then finally covid caused Deja Brew to close, plus my job I’d just started didn’t entitle me to furlough…

I started a heat and eat concept called Deja Food truck where we delivered a weekly changing menu to customers doors all across Teesside, it was a great success.

We then shared a dark kitchen for ten months with the multi award winning Sushiboy.

We launched street food Sundays and Strickies food and drink market and were the first business in Yarm to sell before unseen dishes spanning cuisines all across the world.

We catered for loads of private parties, weddings, and private soirées. Created Pulp Fiction themed street food, Fed you at Dog socials, Tap rooms, Engagement parties, and Food Festivals. Whipped up mint Christmas street food at Strickies, Smashed out Smash burgers at Music Festivals, served a fully loaded Taco bar at a Glastonbury themed corporate party, we’ve popped up and fed kids at nursery open days, fed live music fans at gigs, and done tons of fundraisers. We’ve worked for Amazon, as well as Teesside’slocal authorities providing food for festivals, marathons, and public events across the North East.

We changed our name from Deja Food Truck to Deja Street Food as we sold our food truck…

We are ten year sponsors of Yarm Fun Run, have sponsored grassroots youth football teams and we try and help donate to local food banks and charities wherever possible.

We’ve retained 5 stars for hygiene for five years running from Stockton council.

We’ve cooked live on stage at The Arc in Stockton alongside comedian Matt Reid which was filmed for the telly.

We’ve hosted residencies Sticklands and Holts in Yarm, Play Brew in Middlesbrough and Signals Saltburn, and now, we’ve taken over Ailoli in Birtley for a month in May where we’ll be serving Asian Tapas, this pop up sold out entirely in 12 hours.

We trialed Deja Sushi, which we’ll still be offering on special occasions and at request.

This year, we’ve opened a sushi school called Soosh and the feedback so far has been extremely humbling.

We hope you enjoy our sushi making sessions.

We offer pop ups, adult and child classes, private in your own home tuition, corporate team building packages, birthdays and special events and parties AND gift cards x
