Make Maki Deliveries by Daikanyama

Meet the Maki Masters: MakeMaki marks the funky new enterprise by the bunch behind Changkat's Daikanyama, conveniently offering creative rolls for office & home delivery.

Place an order & within an hour, this "Bruce Lee" maki, made with brown rice, tempura prawns, pickled radish & tempura sauce should be sped to your doorstep.

Rumor has it that the ever-delicious Daikanyama is exploring some sort of collaboration with the always-sensational Simply Mel's, so it's no surprise that this "Nusantara" maki features a spicy Gula Melaka glaze to complement tempeh & crunchy veggies.

"Sidestep Gingerly" (gotta love these names): Soft-shell crab with ginger & tomatoes.

Caesar Go Edo: Grilled teriyaki chicken with "Shogun" sauce. MakeMaki's rolls taste very nice; we feared they'd turn soggy too soon, but each one still felt satisfyingly fresh.

Customaki! Customers can customize their own makis; here's our personalized creation, a meatless marvel of avocado, takuan, apple & panko crumbs with garlic & sesame sauces, wrapped tightly in rice paper.

Or stick to MakeMaki's safe selection, including "The Italian Job," comprising cream cheese, tomato & basil in balsamic dressing. Each roll costs RM12.

Finishing with "Fiddlesticks:" Jicama, apple, cucumber, kanpyo. Other possible components for MakeMaki's rolls include salmon, tuna, beef bacon, smoked duck, tamagoyaki & potato crisps.

    1. Ulric: oooh, that was the one i thought that i would enjoy the least, since it sounded too fruity-veggie-ish for me. but it tasted really refreshing, very crisp, and the flavors were fine. in the end, it helped the balance out all the other heavier makis =)

  5. Cool! Now I can have makis delivered for me to dine in the comforts of my own home and office. Certainly do not like the idea of stepping out these days with the hot dry and humid weather.

    1. Missyblurkit: that's true, i think deliveries like this help us save a lot of time on certain days when the traffic is bad outside or when we need to finish up on work at the office. and it helps that the food is inventive and tasty :D

  19. This place looks great. Tempting description, excellent photos. As someone who is allergic to gluten, sushi joints are always a welcome sight! If you're interested in allergen-conscious (and specifically gluten-free) eating in KL, do pay us a visit at www.celiacsandthecity.com! Cheers. :)
