MakiAli isn’t just another sushi joint. Sure, the lively Truckee restaurant serves up fresh, excellent nigri, sashimi and handrolls from the sushi bar. But what makes MakiAli different is its take as an Izakaya, which is a Japanese pub. So in addition to sushi, MakiAli offers a variety of inventive plates with distinct Asian flare and flavors. Great examples of the Izakaya-style menu offerings include the Dragon Balls, which are tofu pockets stuffed with snow crab, ahi and other seafood then tempura fried. The pork Banh Maki Sliders are a delicious surprise too. MakiAli offers a sushi happy hour with drink and food specials Monday through Friday from 4 to 6:30 p.m.
