Food Review: Maki-San

Have been wanting to try out Maki-san for the longest time ever since it opened this year (I think). Was pretty amazed by how we could create our own makis to our liking with the vast variety of ingredients available. So..... decided to give it a try some time ago! (Sorry this review is pretty backdated. Eeeps)

You're able to customize your own maki or salad here with a wide variety of ingredients available. :)

We had:

Mega San - $9.90

Wrap: Traditional Nori wrap
Rice: Japanese White Rice
Ingredients: Roasted mushroom, Japanese cucumber, Tamagoyaki (Jap Omelette), Tuna Mayo, Crab Stick
Specials: Grilled Unagi (Eel)
Sprinkles: Bonito (Japanese Fish Flakes)
House Sauces: Honey Mustard

Look at the size of the maki and all the ingredients that were in it! We weren't exactly very adventurous on our choices of ingredients so our maki turned out to be pretty mainstream. We were pretty skeptical about using Honey Mustard as our Sauce but it fitted the taste really well by adding a hint of spiciness to it.

Mega San - $9.90

Wrap: Traditional Nori wrap
Rice: Japanese White Rice
Ingredients: Onion, Japanese cucumber, Boiled Egg, Tobiko (Flying fish roe), Crab Stick
Specials: Teriyaki Chicken
Sprinkles: Tempura Crunch
House Sauces: Honey Mustard

I loved my Tempura Crunch! Made my maki have a slight bit of crispiness. I love love boiled egg and onions, so it was a must-add to my maki. I'm a huge fan of Tobiko too, so the maki turned out to really suit my liking. :)

Oh! And they do have makis on the menu which you can order from straight away, if you're not the type to fret over dilemmas. But then again, why go for Maki-san if you're only going for their pre-customized makis? :) It's good to get a little creative there when you're given the opportunity to!

I found this place a little over-priced considering that the makis tasted pretty normal, and somehow overrated. I guess we're just paying for the creativity factor. :)

Service:
You get a queue number so it's self-service.

Atmosphere:
Great for a quick lunch fix. The place is pretty small, reminds me somewhat of Mos Burger.

Hope you found this useful!
Till then. :)
