Miyako Sushi Bar & Hibachi
Sashimi. I love it. Those perfect little colored rolls and shiny slices
of raw fish kick my salivary glands into overdrive. Even mention sushi
in the presence of sophisticated eaters and you are likely to spark a
lively debate. Thankfully I don't know any of those, and my suggestion
of Miyako on Veterans in Metairie merely prompted a "Who's going

Mmmm, and it smelled real good in there too. Not just a sushi bar, Miyako
has Hibachi chefs as well, and they were hard at work when we entered,

More? Is that boat full of tempura headed this way, perchance? Ah, open
for me O heavenly gates of overindulgence, your prodigal son is coming
home. Once they delivered all the platters and bowls I looked like I had
hidden myself behind a tempura barricade. Chopsticks flew and sadly, I
lost a niece in the fray. Last we saw her she was reaching for the shrimp
and then, well, just gone. Possibly dunked in some wasabi.
went on for at least 40 more minutes. Good food, good folks. A big shout
out to cousins Steve, Aminta, Amanda, and the diminutive Stephanie, who
thankfully was not dunked in wasabi and eaten, but had been in the restroom.
was laughable for your repast, coming in at just under $15 a person. Obscene
amounts of food, and still our wallets were heavy.
was, well...What do you say to a gorgeous Asian girl bringing anything
you ask for with a smile? I say yes. And I'll say yes again. Hopefully
