My hubby and I headed to Makis Place which we had seen during our usual walks with our dogs. When we got there we were immediately greeted by friendly and energetic staff which made it for a good start.
It took us a while to study the extensive menu which includes very unusual combinations. My hubby finally went with the dinner platter for two, even though he never intended to share it with anyone! The platter included two different temakis, the mixed fish (salmon, white fish, tuna, and avocado) and the skin temaki (grilled salmon and tare sauce). He liked the mixed fish temaki and said that the fish was fresh. The skin temaki, while good, was a little too much to eat more than just a few bites.
The platter also included the Uramaki tuna roll, mushroom batayaki, and three types of sashimi, which he enjoyed a lot and said that the white fish sashimi was delicious. The final item in his platter, sunomomo with imitation crab, was the only thing I could try and only because he doesn't like cucumbers. I really liked it, probably because I do love pickled cucumbers.
I decided to go with temakis only, so I started with the cameroon, which is made with fresh salmon, grilled shrimp, thai sauce and peanuts. It was very flavorful and just a bit sweet and the peanuts added a nice crunch to each bite. I Then had the nachomaki which includes fresh salmon, nachos, and tabasco pepper sauce. It was a cool combination of japanese-mexican flavors that strangely worked. My last one was the crispy temaki made with fresh salmon, cream cheese, tabasco, and rice flakes. It was spicy but the cream cheese balanced it out. The salmon was fresh and the rice flakes added an extra crunchy texture that made this temaki my favorite of the night.
We also had a couple of sakes that come in a deceivingly small bottle. Don't be fooled, this little suckers pack a punch and they kicked my bootie :)
I also took a sweet temaki to go for my 3:00 a.m. cravings and I am so glad that I did. It is made with chocolate ganache, fresh strawberries, and peanuts in a cookie cone. It was delicious and beautifully presented.
All in all, this is a casual restaurant with good food and excellent service. We love the fact that this is a new addition to Cocowalk. We do suggest that they add sriracha, kimchi sauce, and hot tea to their menu.
