Attention! I have a new go-to restaurant that I need for y’all to know about: Maki Fresh in the Peachtree Battle Shopping Center.
Maki Fresh is the newest fast-casual concept from John Cassimus, founder of Zoes Kitchen. Offering both traditional and innovative Japanese menu items, Maki Fresh serves sushi, sashimi, rice bowls, salads, sliders + more. Maki Fresh also offers meals-to-go and self-checkout stations within the store. Catering and delivery are available.
I’ve eaten at Maki Fresh a number of times over the past three weeks, and I’m a huge fan. It’s super casual – in fact, last night I threw on a bizarre mix of workout clothes and ski gear and met Gorms for dinner. I did not question my outfit once while we ate.
Most of all, the food is fast AND really good. Here are some things I’ve eaten and would recommend…
Kokoyashi Maki Bowl w/ Brown Rice: ahi tuna, coconut, cucumber, scallions + light coconut lime dressing. It’s my favorite thing on the menu.
Look at all of that food! And, for only $8.95. Yeah, you read that right.
Tokyo Maki Bowl w/ Not-So-Fried Brown Rice: chicken, carrots, edamame, yellow pepper, scallions + teriyaki sauce.
Ringo Maki Roll w/ Brown Rice: eel, strawberry, jalapeno + cream cheese.
How creative, right?! It was gorgeous, too. And, I love that brown rice is an option!
Their sushi-related offerings are numerous, but Maki Fresh also has beef, chicken salad + salmon sliders for the sushi adverse.
Y’all need to try this place. It’s fresh, it’s yummy, it’s fast – AND it has one of the Coca-Cola Freestyle machines!
Love it. See y’all there!
