528 S. Park Ave. Winter Park, 407-790-4592. makisplacewinterpark.com
Japanese sushi by way of Brazil, Makis (above) has cornered the hand-roll market in South America and is making inroads here. A generous cone of nori seaweed can be filled with cold or hot sushi makings, both familiar and unusual, ordered from a wide menu or with your choice of delights. The mustard salmon variety with cooked fish, capers, orange sauce and mustard is a highlight.
