Miami Elites brought their review writing and rating skills to Sushi Maki in Coral Gables for a night of sampling sushi, sake, and sizzling new savory and sweet delights.
When the team behind locally loved chain Sushi Maki sat down to dream up the latest additions to their menus they needed some feedback and Yelp Miami's Elites were there to help them decide on the greatest hits. The night included tiraditos such as yellowtail with citrus soy and jalapeno, tuna with roasted pineapple, shiso, and red serrano, and salmon with aji amarillo, lime, cucumber and tomato. Also introduced that night were sushi tacos including spicy tuna with spicy mayo, tobiko and lemon zest, yellowtail jalapeno with ginger, soy and radish, and salmon miso with chili garlic and sour cream. The next course brought a variety of small dishes such as kobe beef sliders and black cod with miso and to close an assortment of rolls needing names. Guests washed down all the filling goods with Sapporo and saketinis.
Yelpers were able to meet the chefs and staff from the restaurant. They provided feedback and as enjoyed mingling with other yelpers and fulfilling those famous food critic dreams. Michelle C summed it up: "I was an Iron Chef Judge for 2 hours."
Can't wait to see what dishes make the cut in 2010
