On a sticky summer evening, I felt in the mood for something light, something crunchy, something like... veggie sushi. Where else but Miya's Sushi would satisfy my craving? So we headed out to the corner of Chapel and Howe for the most creative and delicious interpretations of rolls around.
The place was packed, despite the fact that it's summer and most of Yale is a ghost town. But we were able to squeeze in and enjoy complementary bowls of miso soup while we waited for a table to be set. This isn't any ordinary miso soup - rich with onion and other vegetables, it's more of a miso stew with a thick broth. Delicious.
I ordered the Japafrican Queen Roll (sushi made with eggplant, apricots, avocado, pickled radish, scallions & ethiopian berbere spice mix, wrapped in freshly made teff grain crepe - I asked for it without the goat cheese), the Mount Fuji Roll (and inside-out roll of seasoned eggplant, spicy miso avocado & scallions), and my favorite, the Rikki Tikki Roll (mushroom & cauliflower with roasted garlic, chinese black beans, scallions, hot pepper & pine nuts). And of course we shared a bottle of homemade ginger and lemongrass Dragon Lady sake.
