Maki Yaki – Chain Sushi

by Mikey

Maki Yaki is a franchised sushi joint.  I guess you could say it’s the Arby’s of sushi.  It’s not as fast food as a San Sai, but it is more fast food than your locally owned sushi restaurant.  The question remains, though, how does the quality stand up to other sushi restaurants?

Maki Yaki – On Thompson in Ventura – Also with many locations in CA and surrounding states.

I was at the Ventura location not this one.

Kyoto not just a place in Japan

by Mikey

First off I apologize to everyone for not getting this up yesterday.  The Angels and some computer issues were to blame.  If it helps, I will have Brian write you an essay on why “Hella” is his favorite word.  On to the review….

I always wonder where Sushi places get their name.  It’s easy when it’s “I Love Sushi”, “Sushi Planet”, or when they use the name of the chef or owner. Me, I would call mine Mikey’s House O’ Fishies.

Kyoto is a place in Japan and one of its largest cities.  It is also a huge cultural and spiritual center in Japan.  Who said you never learn anything on this site? Naturally, you figure any place named after such a wonderful city should have a great spice rack and a good mix of traditional and modern flavors.  Hop on my magic school bus and we’ll check it out.

Can you see me I'm the one waving with the hat on?
