Foodie Friday: Miyabi 45th – Seattle, WA

Husband’s actually eaten at the original Miyabi Sushi by Southcenter since he was a little kid. Miyabi recently opened another restaurant in Wallingford called Miyabi 45th, except this one doesn’t have sushi, but specializes more in soba. We went to check it out during a Hawaiian popup weekend, and they had a live musician and all the waitresses wore muumuus — it felt like we were in Hawaii for the night!

It’s fun when a restaurant starts you off with an amuse-bouche. This was a cube of watermelon with feta cheese and balsamic vinegar along with a shot of SPAM soup, which sounded like it could be gross, but it was tasty!

We’re obsessed with uni, so we had to get these uni shooters with ponzu, wasabi, and a quail egg. This dish is $2 less at the original Miyabi, so if you’re ever on the south side…

Since it was Hawaiian night, they had kalua pork as a special on the menu.

Oyster poke, so good! I wish I could have eaten 10.

Pork belly soba. I loved the texture of the soba noodles and the broth was so flavorful. You can also get it in its cold form, which will be nice for the warmer weather.

Finished off dinner with green tea profiteroles.

      Hello! The spam soup tasted a little creamy like pureed potato with a bit of spam flavoring. Sounds nasty, but was actually tasty!

    OMG everything looks so delicious! I love japanese food, esp sushi but have had to stay away since the pregnancy. I already told Stu my first meal after giving birth will have to be Japanese.

    this all looks so yummy! I might give the watermelon/feta/balsamic thing a try, could be an easy/fancy dinner party amuse bouche 🙂
