Sushi & Maki in SE Portland: A Review
Once you get inside, there is an explosion of color and textures. There are posters on the walls, little umbrellas dangly from the ceiling, and plenty of seating for such a small space. Up in the front of the restaurant is a bar where people can sit and watch the master sushi makers create their delicious art.
As you can see in my photos, we went at a great time last Saturday. It was at about 11:30, so it was just after the place had opened but before the lunch rush. Since my first time at Sushi & Maki, I've gone back about 6 other times with friends and family. I've even used the loyalty punch card to earn a free plate of "state" rolls. To explain their menu, the main attraction are dozens of types of sushi that are named after American states. My two favorite are the Oregon roll (sushi with asparagus and salmon), and the Texas roll which is fried and filled with cream cheese, imitation crab, salmon, avocado, and topped with eel sauce.
