The Makeup Maki
How amazing is the opportunity to make your own sushi in one of the top Japanese restaurants in Bahrain?
I was given the chance to collaborate with MAKI to create my own sushi!!
It was such an honour to be picked to do this! The Makeup Maki is now available at Maki Restaurant in Moda Mall.
The maki is made up of a unique blend of flavors. It has a tempura prawn, avocado, mango sauce, strawberry sauce, spices etc . I wanted to create something that I would love to eat & I’m a very picky person when it comes to food.
Now how does sushi have to do with makeup?
Well, if you look closely at the plate- you’ll notice that it is very similar to an eyeshadow/lipstick palette. They are super colorful- just like makeup & art! It represents an artist’s palette- each maki roll has a different topping to make it look like a different eyeshadow color etc.
We had a tasting dinner to create it & change it until we have reached the desired taste. See the pictures below for the dinner
Maki also hosted a private event on Nov 22, 2013 for family & friends to launch the sushi. There was a live demonstration of how the sushi was created & a short speech by me & Amer, the owner of Maki restaurant.

I want to personally thank everyone who attended, and those who supported me !
I also want to personally thank the team of Obai & Hill for organizing this & helping me from A-Z.
Special thanks to Maki for giving me the wonderful opportunity to do this!
