It’s always fun & adventurous to try new dishes at Maki … It’s been my favorite Japanese Cuisine for years & will always be. Also it’s the restaurant where my husband & I went to eat at when we 1st got married, it has a special place in my heart ❤
Yesterday we had the chance to try new dishes & I’m telling you, day after day their dishes are getting more delicious & sophisticated. My husband wasn’t a fan of Japanese food at all but now he’s an addict 😛
Caviaroli Maki is one of the new sophisticated dishes that’s been added to the menu, here’s a little info about it;
Taking Japanese fusion cuisine to new heights, Maki pioneered a new, unprecedented concept across the globe that only Maki can think of. Olive oil caviar (encapsulated spheres of extra virgin olive oil), on top of a maki roll filled with delicious seafood, engulfed by a spinach wrap, and topped with special spices. To get a feel of what’s ahead: Take the first bite from the Caviaroli™ spoon, and feel the fresh, fruity burst of extra virgin olive oil. Then take one of the maki rolls and savor an emulsion of flavors. The succulence of prawn tempura, the softness of the sushi rice, the vigor of wild thyme, and the vitality of the spices, all topped with more Caviaroli™. Nothing like it! Maki uses this exclusively innovative product to not only enhance presentation and taste, but to also solidify their position as leaders in the market when it comes to elevating fusion Japanese cuisine to new sophisticated levels!
I’d like to thank Mr. Toufic Salloum for having us again … It’s always a pleasure dining at Maki.
Let’s explore the new dishes & enjoy the pictures 😉
