This is an easy review to write, because the food was great. We headed out to eat some sushi and picked Miso Asian Grill and Sushi Bar because some friends recommended it. There certainly has been an explosion of sushi bars in the Fredericksburg area in the last several years, and our exploration of them has slowed down.
Mrs. Alphageek ordered a Thai summer roll. It was rice noodles, lettuce and herbs wrapped in a thin rice wrapper. We found it to be delicious. I even liked it, despite it had some bitter lettuce in it, which is not a favorite of mine.
As a side note, I decided to try my cell phone to take some food pictures. I hope you like these results, but I look forward to using my more standard cameras for food reviews in the future. These were pretty difficult to get to my satisfaction.
We thoroughly enjoyed our meal on the cold night in January. If we had any complaint, it was only that someone turned off the kerosene heater while we were there, leaving the smell of unburned petroleum in the air.
They have a large menu of other interesting items here. While this was our first visit, it certainly will not be our last.
Update, March 1, 2011
On the left is the Thai Summer Roll. This is what I described above, except we got a better picture this time.
On the right is a really cool appetizer. It was delicate tuna served with a light in it for some dramatic effect. I will say that it might be the first time I have had something non-alcoholic with a light in it.
On the right, we have Sashimi Time. I will spare you the references to an out of work performing artists here. You are welcome. The lights made for a dramatic presentation. If you have held on this long, you really should click on the picture to see a bigger image. I had an ulterior motive in ordering this dish. I wanted to see how this establishment cuts fish. As crazy as it sounds, not everyone can correctly cut fish. After this dish, I will be getting some sashimi here again soon because I found the simple, gentle flavors of the freshly cut fish to be incredible.
