We ate at Miyako on a whim one Friday. I had a job interview earlier that day and we decided to jump the gun and celebrate. Since I eat my work lunch at about 8pm it seemed like a good idea. First impressions: nice exterior, a little confusing on how to get to there from the interstate. There are a couple of turns behind Chipotle, McDonalds and Arby’s to get to Miyako. I didn’t realize until after we left that this was the old Bob Evan’s restaurant. It certainly didn’t remind me of that on the inside. When I looked at the building leaving I could see the resemblance.
We were seated by the restroom since we did not need a grill. This does not always indicate to me that it will be a bad experience. They have to put tables back there right? So after a while and I mean a “while” our waitress came over and took our order. We decided on 5 rolls:
We were told immediately that it would be a wait on the sushi. We were surprised when it came about 15 – 20 minutes later. Here they go.
Spicy Salmon – Good flavor. The salmon tasted fresh and it was sufficiently spicy. I am a big spicy salmon fan.
Happy Roll – Their menu won't describe the special rolls so I can't quite recall what is inside this one but I remember it being tasty with good flavor. If I find the more descriptive menu I will repost.
Tuna Fantastic – Same deal. I can remember tuna and avocado. Pretty tasty.
Miyako – Again. Can't remember what's in it but the only one that was below par is the spider (below).
Spider – This was made with frozen crab. I mean OBVIOUSLY frozen crab. It almost shredded in my mouth. It wasn’t moist, it was water logged. I don’t know what is so difficult to grasp about if you cannot serve FRESH seafood in your sushi, then don’t serve sushi!
I would go there again, however I'd prefer to go to Sweet Basil.
