I'm a little surprised when Miss Chicken suggests Maki Maki on Broadway. I thought she'd be all Japanese fooded out after her eight day trip. The japanese lunch is an attempt to abate the pain at being back at work and relive the holiday glory - I know how that feels.
The last time we ate at Maki Maki I had the most amazing Soft Shell Crab Udon Noodle Soup and was all set to go for this again today.
Miss Chicken alerts me to the new lunch time special where we can order a rice (or noodle) bowl AND a sushi roll for $10! Seems too good to be true.

The sushi arrives almost seconds after we order it. We both whip out our cameras and I try to make my photos look as good as I know Miss Chickens will.
The sushi is freshly made, tasty and is just the right amount. My Dragon Roll comes topped with eel and an avacado and shredded crab filling (or seafood extender - who can really tell). I've only ever had Dragon Roll with cream cheese in the middle so this is an interesting change.
The Chicken Teriyaki has a lovely crisp skin surrounding a succulent chicken breast and comes with cabbage, something red that I cannot identify and rice. There is also some bright red pickled lotus root which I'm fascinated with as it's so pretty. I can't get the camera thing happening well enough to take a picture of it which makes me sad.
|Spicy, but not too spicy, pork|
We have to order and pay for our meal at the cash register - which is no big deal.
I am upset though that I find my self forkless and trying to eat rice with chopsticks. I cannot for the life of me catch anyone's attention to ask about getting a fork. Oh well, this dress was getting a bit tight anyway so I shouldn't be eating carbs at lunch.
Maki Maki is at 169 Broadway, Ultimo.
