an amazing journey

our history

Makifornia was conceived following an amazing journey across Japan. There, in the towns and villages, we discovered a rich culture of many flavours.
We simply fell in love!
For your delectation, we have created an extraordinary symbiosis between West and Far East, between modernity and tradition. ‘Maki’ is inspired by the Land of the Rising Sun, while ‘Fornia’ evokes California and ‘California Rolls’. When the Empire marries the New World, some spectacular flavours are born of their culinary nuptials. Makifornia is honoured to invite you on a great gastronomic adventure, blending a range of Japanese recipes with an assortment of dishes reinterpreted Western-style.
