Sushi and Maki are popular foods of the Japanese culture. There are many variations of sushi, and Maki is one of them. Maki is also known as a rolled sushi. It is cylindrical in shape, and the fillings of the roll are wrapped in seaweed, which is also known as Nori. Some chefs may wrap the Maki in soy paper or in an omelet. The presentation of Maki is what makes it standard apart from the other types of sushi, which include Nigri and Oshi. The similarity they all share is that they will all come with rice that is steamed, as well as a type of fish.

Sushi is the most popular Japanese food, that comes in many different forms, and names. The three main types of sushi include Maki, Nigiri, and Oshi sushi. Nigiri sushi is slices of fish on pads of rice. Oshi comes in bites in the shape of rectangles or squares.

Maki is also called rolled sushi, which is cylindrical, and its fillings are wrapped in Nori, which is seaweed. It may also come wrapped in an omelet or soy paper. The chief difference between the two is the way the sushi is presented. Both are prepared with steamed rice and raw or cooked fish.
