Two things I love: Sushi and wacky food combos. So, when I read an article on Today’s Bites blogs entitled “Doritos and mac ‘n cheese? Sushi gets a fast food twist,” I was pretty excited. And I was downright ecstatic to then discover the make-your-own sushi roll restaurant featured in the article, My Maki was in fact one block away from my office. If this is not sushi destiny, then I don’t know what is….
As the article explains, “Call it thinking outside the roll: The folks behind My Maki, a new restaurant in New York City, are letting customers DIY their sushi. The fun-loving pair (behind My Maki) thought about snack foods they liked, and then played around with rolls, pairing traditional ingredients with non-traditional ones. The result? Take the Big Bird roll, with chicken, Japanese mayonnaise, Craisins and potato sticks. If that’s not up your alley, fear not – this is customizable sushi, after all. Make your own!”
After reading the description of the Big Bird roll, I had to hold myself back from sprinting across the street to put my wacky food combo mind to work and make the best sushi roll ever created. Alas, it was only 9:00 and My Maki would not be open for at least 2 hours. I distracted myself with the leftover fruit from last night’s grill’s fest while reviewing the online menu (and of course working duh).
