Sake House Miro
Today me and my partner in crime Cam went to this place called Sake House Miro. We tried going there a couple other times and it was closed. Yeah. Thankfully it wasn’t this time. Its located on La Brea just past Wilshire here in L.A. Or whatever area you wanna call it. Miracle Mile? Bah! On to the review.
We started off with these little spicy cucumber things. “Pretend they’re pickles” Cam told me. I swear she is the only person on Erf that can get me to eat half the shit she does. They were good and not too spicy.
I’m still new to eating sushi so I don’t try and get crazy with it. I have had the pure raw fish ones before but I like to stick with familiar. New scares me. So I got the spicy tuna roll. I have recently been eating at Sushi Cat near my job and they have really good spicy tuna rolls but these were way better. I’m not quite sure what was added but something gave it a little extra kick that was delicious.
I also got the shrimp tempura roll. This is by far my favorite sushi so far. This place made them super thick and by the time I was done I was full. I know. I had no idea that sushi was filling until I had a full plate of it last year with Julia in Pasadena or something. If you’ll notice in the background is Cam’s seaweed salad. It looked like The Man-Thing.
Cam got the V8 sushi. I’m not sure if its because it has something to do with the drink or a car engine. Either way it looked way too damned healthy so I didn’t touch it.
As we were sitting there I wanted to wait to see if I was too full to get the chicken on a stick. Its not called that but whatever. Damn, this was the juiciest chicken I have ever had! It was so good! Yes, it is small but after all the other stuff it was actually more than enough.
And finally Cam wanted me to take a picture of my wasabi since she says I use way too much. “It’s like a paste now! Add some soy sauce!” Nope. Even though it made the back and top of my brain hurt I enjoyed it. If you are ever in the area and catch them when they’re open head to Sake House Miro. Cool waiters, good service, and about average sushi prices if not a little more but well worth it.
