Austin Sushi Jul 29, 2008
Taking a break from our usual Warehouse district dinner haunts, we went to Maiko Sushi Lounge on West 6th just down from the Belmont. Always busy, but never too crowded, we got seated right away. Which always seems the case. We decided to sit at one of the bench tables in the stylish bar area. A long expanse of bar, with white upholstered seats on chromed pedestools. There is another adjacent room with regular tables and a sushi bar towards the rear. On Friday and Saturday nights they have a DJ and kareoke there. We all ordered a round of drinks (Rachel and I decided on the Sapporo)and appetizers. We started with Miso soup ($4), Zaru Soba Noodles ($7) and Edamame ($4). The Zaru Soba noodles, though cold, were good. Ginger, scallions, radish and soy sherry sauce created a tasty dish. Now being a "non-sushi guy" myself, I can always find plenty to eat. This time it was the Crispy Smoked Duck Roll($10). A an eggroll, more or less, stuffed with veggies and roasted duck, served in a pool of sweet and spicy sauce. It was excellent! The others shared a couple of Spicy Tuna Rolls ($9 ea.) and a California Roll ($9). At one point I was coaxed into trying the California roll again. Gads, thank God for Sapporo!!! :P Despite my misgivings about sushi, dinner was great as usual.
