|Mai Sushi for lunch!|
|Cold case up front for quick grab 'n go meals|
|Warm case for select items|
|Full service dining room in the back!|
|Lunch menu for the restaurant|
|The disappointing "miso" soup|
Shortly after the soup debacle, our entree is served! Hurrah!!
I'm usually a huge fan of the ginger dressings served on salads at Japanese restaurants, but this one was....different. It was pretty much warm mayo on my salad. Alas, another unfinished dish on my plate. No time to pout...moving on!
As a non-raw fish eater (don't judge meeee!), california rolls are pretty much my bread and butter (along with eel rolls, spider rolls, and other tasty delights of course). However, these rolls tasted like supermarket sushi. No good, but I ate them all anyway since I was getting hungrier even as the food was sitting front of me.
The tempura and chicken teriyaki were good though. Nothing special, but standard. As you can see in the pic above, the chicken teriyaki was comprised of plain chicken pieces with some teriyaki sauce on top. I liked it as I really enjoy simple chicken breast but my dining compadre thought it was eh. And the teriyaki was served with NO rice! How?? Sobbbbb...
Overall, the only real enjoyable and stand-out portion of the meal was the green tea. A good green tea served with sub-par to mediocre food is not good enough to merit a return trip in my book. Save your money and stick with Cafe Zaiya (post to come!) next door for lunch.
