A Taste of the Orient:
Miyuki Japanese Restaurant
Rosío Sánchez, Lucy Aguirre, Cynthia Vega-Sánchez, Vanessa Carter
When most people think Japanese food, they think
steamed rice, raw fish, and chopsticks, right? Well at
Miyuki, you can find a lot more than just fish eggs.
The second you walk in, the classic-yet-contemporary
atmosphere takes you by surprise.
We decided to get things started with California
Rolls, a form of crab sushi wrapped in seaweed and
stuck on rice. This exquisite delicacy is tastefully
bitter with an unforgettable texture. The mixture of
teriyaki and sesame chicken is to die for, the neatly
sliced strips of chicken were delightfully sweet and
sour. Also, the pot stickers were delicious—to be
honest we didn’t know what the hell they were made of,
but damn they were good.
For those of you who are vegans or vegetarians, there
are tofu alternatives. And to finish off, we tried
green tea ice cream — it’s minty with a taste of
vanilla, and a bit cream. It’s like a party in your
mouth and everyone is invited!
The prices were very fair, everything is moderately
inexpensive. Now for the complaints; service was S L O
W, they wouldn’t serve us saki (which is
understandable, we guess…), and we had to seat
ourselves. Nothing a lousy tip can’t fix for next
time. Nonetheless, the restaurant was overall very
good. We give it four and a quarter stars out of five.
Not bad, huh?
