Mr. Roboto is mostly about fun and interesting flavor combinations for makis. Dinner was just for three (technically two and a half), so we couldn’t try a lot of the other dishes.
We had the pork katsu, the Mazinger Z, and I just had to try the dirty corn.
The Mazinger Z – consisting of spicy salmon, negi salmon with cream cheese, and crispy salmon skin on top – is a real winner. One piece tends to be a mouthful, as it always does with fun, creative makis, but flavourful nonetheless.
The pork katsu was fine until we realized they used a pork chop cut for the dish. Underneath the breading was a big piece of bone. It was disappointing.
Funny enough, they didn’t scrimp on the dirty corn – it’s grilled sweet Japanese corn that’s shredded from the cob and ‘messed up’ with nori strips, mayo, and fish roe. It was good!
We hope to be back – with our own robo chopsticks too – and go on a maki party!
