Text and pjotos by Cesare Zucca

BOM (good in Brazilian) plus MAKI (the roll of Japanese cuisine) equals BOMAKI the new nippo-brasilian cuisie that is scoring all over Italy. Last night I went to theopening for the new Bomaki Navigli, tin he trendiest ” movida” and “food” area in Milan.
One hundred seats between the internal hall and the welcoming external dehor overlooking the Naviglio, which allows you to taste the goodness of the Bomaki offer in an environment characterized by extremely refined furnishing elements.


Let’s adventure in luxuriant tropical forests and ceramic azulejos that recall the South American atmosphere. Exotic accents meet natural details in a kind of “urban escape” in the metropolis, where the menu boasts a Brazilian, Japanese and European foods can be enjoyed in a colorful environment, full of details reminiscent of South America . ………….

The menu is extensive and satisfies all tastes, in fact, in addition to the vast choice of uramaki, you can try different varieties of tartare and carpaccio or more “street” formats such as burritos and meat and fish tacos.
These delights can be combined with excellent typical Brazilian cocktails such as caipirinha, caipiroska, exotic mojitos, all with flavors ranging from mango to passion fruit and for the more traditional customers of craft beer, “Branquinha”, created specifically for Bomaki by the Brewery of Legnano.

I met The CEO of Bomaki Giuseppe Grasso who told me: “Bomaki Navigli represents an important step for the company because it covers a very strategic area of Milan and, in fact, completes our coverage on the city. The restaurant has enormous potential, both for the position we have chosen and for its internal architecture which is able to enhance the peculiarities of our food & drink offer and to keep the promise that we make to our customers every day: “

 The chef and partner Jeric Bautista, brings taste and creativity to the gastronomic proposal is one of Bomaki’s strengths, the dishes are constantly evolving and keep faith with tradition, aromas and colors of Brazil. The visual impact is the first step of the culinary experience, a fundamental element for Japanese cuisine which is combined with the chromatic Brazilian gastronomy.
