Miko Sushi

September 17, 2014


Yakitori - 2+

J's comment > very tender and juicy chicken and negi (green onion)! A juicy negi?! This was a first! (the veggie component is usually just for decoration, not actually to add anything to the dish), I was pleasantly shocked; well balanced flavor, yakitori sauce beautifully enhanced the chicken instead of drowning it out

FYI, this item isn't strictly on the menu, but the server was nice and advised me that I could order it as a side (it usually comes on rice as a meal)

Assorted nigiri: Toro, Hamachi, Unagi, Tamago - 2

J's comment > not bad; fish was insanely fresh and very well cut; if not for the rice being slightly sub par (slightly softer than what sushi rice should be like), this would have been a 2+ no question; toro and hamachi had absolutely not tendons at all; unagi was firm and for once, had quite a lot of meat on it and the unagi sauce didn't overwhelm the fish; tamago was firmer than I like (Octopus Garden's tamago still reigns), but very flavorful

FYI, I suspected the nigiris would be good here since there was a completely separate menu for the nigiri, instead of having it tacked on somewhere in the menu - good to know I guessed right!

Assorted tempura - 2

J's comment > ingredients on the inside well cooked, but tempura batter slightly softer than I'd like (needs to be a lot crisper); this was a side portion that isn't strictly on the menu, but the server was nice and advised me that I could order a small version of the assorted tempura
