Only 5 minutes from downtown, at Vila Yolanda neighborhood you can find this charming japanese restaurant named Miyako.
This family restaurant keeps the japanese traditions in all the details!! The kitchen is coordinated by Miyako, she is the one that guarantees that the food has a delicios unique taste and still follow the tradition.
There was plenty options of dishes that were new for me(some of the ingredients as well!). Everything looked so different that took us a while to chose.
To taste something new, outside from my sushi and sashimi comfort zone, the First dish we tried was called Nabeyaki-udon and It was an amazing surprise! This was a soup of udon noodles with vegetables, shrimp tepura, tikuwa, komaaboko, shiitake and egg! It hard to describe how this different ingredients get along in a perfect harmony, so tasty!
Our third option of plate was not that wild. We choose the old but gold Salmon Maki, made with kanikama, egg, mayonnaise, cucumbers, lettuce, rice, nori algae and slices of salmon! The ingredients were really fresh and even it was a traditional plate, the flavor surprised me!
We didn’t go there only for the food! They have a sake from japan that we had to taste and it was a perfect match with the food.
This is Bambu Recommended!
