    “What’s your roll?” – Okonomi’s catchy slogan got our attention. Serving “sushi as you like it”, patrons can create their own maki rolls by mixing and matching from 40 different fillings, 16 types of toppings, and 20 sauces.

    Okonomi’s interior is bright and cosy, with plenty of glass within the restaurant and an open kitchen to boot. You’ll be so close to the sushi action you can practically see how your rolls are put together as you wait for your orders.

    To customise your own maki rolls, all you need to do is follow the step-by-step guide in the “Do-it-Yourself” menu. First, choose a base of either white or brown rice with seaweed or soy wrap, then select the size of your roll.

    A six-piece small roll (RM13.90) comprises three regular fillings, one topping and one sauce, while the medium (RM16.90) and large rolls (RM19.90) each comes with four and five fillings respectively. For an additional RM5, you can top up with premium fillings such as scallops and unagi.

    Next, let your imagination and palate run wild with the fillings, toppings, and sauces. If you are not feeling adventurous, there are also house rolls with outrageous combinations created by the chef, ranging from RM15.90 to RM20.90.

    Kampungboy and I challenged each other to create our own winning combinations.

    I played it safe by choosing the white rice with seaweed wrap that comes with four types of fillings (avocado, strawberries, soft shell crab, scallops), topped with ebiko and spicy mentaiko sauce. You basically can’t go wrong with a combination like this featuring a clever play of flavours and textures.

    Kampungboy went wild and ordered this – white rice roll with seaweed wrap, smoked duck, boiled eggs, mangoes, mushrooms, topped with parmesan cheese and curry sauce. He opted to tempura it for an additional RM1. It was a very creative combination and it tasted super delicious too! This decadent roll was surprisingly very well-balanced with texture and flavours.

    Avocado prawn salad

    Okonomi’s menu is varied enough that there were plenty other delectable dishes to go with your DIY sushi creations. For instance, this light and refreshing avocado prawn salad was given a Japanese twist with its ebiko topping and Japanese dressing. It was perfect for our warm and humid weather.

    Simmered fresh salmon, green avocados, tamako and tobiko layered in seasoned rice

    One of Okonomi’s signature dishes is simmered fresh salmon, green avocados, tamago and tobiko layered in seasoned rice (RM15.90). It was delicious for its fresh flavours and visually stunning with a variety of colours and textures. Beware of the hidden cili padi inside though – it was fiery!

    Azuki latte with whipped cream and caramel, matcha float (RM12.90), and matcha azuki shiratama latte (RM12.90)

    Red bean and green tea-based drinks take centrestage in the beverage menu. We really enjoyed all the drinks that we ordered; they were incredibly refreshing and true to the taste of matcha and azuki.

    Matcha lava cake (RM16.90)

    The matcha lava cake is the most instagram-ed dish in Okonomi and we just had to see it in person! It came with matcha chocolate sticks, powdered sugar, vanilla ice cream, and strawberry. It was oozing with yumminess as the green tea sauce was super gooey in the centre of the cake.

    Come and have some fun creating your own maki roll in Okonomi. You’ll be surprised at how good they can be!
