Popular sushi restaurant Chotto Maki has opened a third outlet in Tsim Sha Tsui, offering not only its signature rice rolls, but also a new noodle bar.
The new restaurant will serve Chotto Maki’s iconic sushi rolls, which are made from scratch for every order, alongside a new customize-your-own-noodle bar, where you can get traditional Hong Kong “cart noodles” with a Japanese twist.
Starting at HK$78 (US$10), guests can create their ideal DIY soup noodle bowls by mixing and matching their preferred ingredients.
From ramen and soba to udon and green tea noodles (+HK$10), there is something for every kind of noodle lover. Guests can also choose from three comforting soups: nutty dandan, nourishing pork bone broth or rich curry soup base, and garnish their choice of noodle with lip-smacking toppings like umami-rich baby cuttlefish (+HK$3), Hokkaido scallop (+HK$6), mentaiko fish cake (+HK$5), konjac jelly and Alaska fish balls. There are also vegetarian toppings on offer including enoki mushroom, kimchi and tempura crunch.
Chotto Maki has also created two new housemade bottled teas (HK$28 each) to complement the rolls and noodles, namely Passion Fruit Oolong Tea and Peach Oolong Tea.
Besides the new dishes, fans of the sushi restaurant can also find Chotto Maki’s favorites in the Tsim Sha Tsui store including the Black Magma Classic Roll with chopped scallop, negitoro and tempura crunch with black sesame sauce and the Philadelphia Classic Roll with salmon, cream cheese, avocado and tobiko with mayo and unagi sauce.
The new restaurant also features a quirky design with the venue reimagined as a giant sushi box. The iconic red exterior of the boxes dons the walls inside the eatery, whilst the bold blue interior is replicated on the restaurant’s frontage. Custom light fixtures pay homage to Japanese paper fans, whilst a large-scale light box nods to traditional tatami rooms.
