The maki initiates the #sushilovers
The Maki marks the beginning of all #sushilovers. A piece that is capable of making anyone fall in love in just seconds, becoming forever and ever a sushi lover. Once you reach that moment, there's no turning back. Why does this happen? Normally Makis are simpler pieces, with a mild flavor, easy to catch with chopsticks and do not fall apart when dipped in soy sauce, making them a common dish, easy to eat in one bite and a must every time we feel like eating sushi.
In Japanese the word "maki" means roll, and "sushi" means rice. Our sushichefs create a cylinder of rice around the chosen strip of fish or vegetable and cover it with dried seaweed (nori). This step should be done slowly and carefully so that it adheres perfectly to our sushi rice roll. After it has been rolled tightly, it is usually cut into 8 portions, which makes it have a certain kind of thickness. They are meant to be eaten in one bite. Ready to eat, bon appétit.
Discover all our makis
In our menu we offer several types of maki, for all kinds of palates: vegans, vegetarians and celiacs. But without leaving behind the traditional salmon maki and tuna maki for lovers of raw fish. Our sushi rolls are accompanied by ginger and wasabi.
The first serves to take it between each piece and avoid mixing the taste of one with the other, enjoying the flavor of each makii in all its splendor. And the wasabi gives us that instant spicy touch that intensifies the flavor, remember that you only need to spread a pinch!
At your favorite Monster Sushi restaurant, you'll find the most delicious maki, with options for everyone from raw fish to vegetables. You must try the classic Salmon Maki and Tuna Maki, separately or together in a Salmon and Tuna Maki Mix. But, if you don't like raw fish or prefer a veggie option, we have options for you. Another of our most popular makis is the Avocado Maki. Avocado makis belong to the ancient gastronomic tradition of Japan. Finally, another vegetarian option, the cucumber maki. This vegetarian variety is the result of chefs using more freedom and creativity to experiment with new flavors.
The makis, as you like them best
The maki can be eaten with chopsticks or by hand. If you prefer to eat it by hand, touch only the part covered with seaweed. To enjoy the full flavor, dip lightly into the soy sauce.
Our makis are the smallest option, perfect to put in your mouth in one bite. They are nothing more and nothing less than hosomakis, the smallest maki. They are the same as maki, but smaller, narrower and with only one ingredient, excluding rice and seaweed. In Japanese "hosoi" is narrow or thin. Would you like to try them in our Japanese Restaurant or at home?
