Coral Gables, FL 33134
Miami New Times' Description
Not just a sushi joint, this bustling lunch-and-dinner spot in downtown Coral Gables offers daily specials - scribbled in Kanji and English on blackboards that run the length of the east wall - depending on what's fresh. A treasure on the regular menu is the spicy kimuchi ramen, a fiery interpretation of traditional noodle soup, a bright-orange broth brimming with sliced pork, bean sprouts, and kim chee. Other noodle dishes are uniformly excellent. The sushi is superb as well, and without the scourge of cutesy nicknames for different kinds of rolls that plague so many other popular sushi bars. One indicator of the quality: At any given time, the restaurant seems to boast at least one party of Japanese businessmen who have sauntered across the street from the Westin Colonnade.
Tips from foursquare
This is probably the closest to real Japanese food as you'll get in Miami, restaurant wise. You have to try Shabu Shabu!
Order from the Specials Menu on the wall.
Try the tuna tataki (only if you like onions) as appetizer and the cheesecake tempura as dessert.
This place has a great lunch always fresh!
Best japanese food ever!!!!
