Another place I’ve been meaning to get to, but haven’t until now because of its location.. pretty much the opposite side of town for me. I’d heard their ramen was pretty good, so recently we made the trek out to Miko’s. The restaurant is clean, fairly small, and has a very homey atmosphere. I liked that there actually is a “Miko”, and she’s serving up the food! It looks to be a family run operation, and the service is extremely friendly and efficient. The night we were there, plenty of regulars were coming in, which was nice to see.
As for the food, Adam ordered the tonkatsu ramen, and wanting to try something different, I got the miso ramen. I think both were acceptable, but the tonkatsu was certainly the better of the two. The miso ramen was extremely sweet, which I’m not used to. If anything, I expect miso ramen to lean more towards the spicy side. The noodles were okay, and I did like that they were very generous with the toppings. Spinach, egg, kamaboko, bamboo, green onions, AND sliced pork. A lot of places would charge extra for all of these toppings! All were pretty good, except the pork was a bit too lean, and therefore a bit tough.
Along with the ramen, they give you an order of ‘gyoza’. These were obviously homemade, and fried. Different, but good.
As an ‘appetizer’, we decided to try one of their sushi rolls, and opted for “Miko’s roll”, which contained salmon, yellowtail, tuna, kanikama (krab), and avocado with a garlic sauce. Well, at least it was supposed to be with a garlic sauce, which I think they forgot. As a result, the sushi tasted fresh, but was a bit on the bland side.
Overall, it was an okay experience. If you live on this side of town, I’d say to give it a try. I think there are better places for ramen, which is what we came for, but I’d be up to returning to try some of the other dishes.
