Mio Sushi

Mio Sushi has several locations in Oregon and Washington. This blog post covers the Salmon Creek (Washington) location on NE 12th Avenue (off NE 134th Street).

A coworker suggested that we try this place out. The panda hadn't had sushi of any sort in a while, so it was a pretty good change of pace.

It's a bright and clean interior. The glass display cases are filled with fresh seafood, ready for making sushi on the spot. The menu is pretty expansive and probably would take me about 50 visits to get through everything.

Needing to get back to work, I opted for the three-choice bento ($12.95). Picking from the list, I got miso salmon, spicy chicken, and a California roll. It also comes with miso soup, rice, and choice of either gyoza or tofu.

Miso soup was very good. Strips of seaweed in it. Healthy panda.

For me, the salmon was the big winner. Awesome sweetness from the miso, lovely smoky flavor, perfectly cooked overall. The chicken seemed more like a small stir fry of chicken and veggies. Barely any heat, and I'd guess any meat eater could enjoy it.

The California roll hit the spot and got the panda a little fluffier as the day wore on. Yay for starch!

A nice amount of food for the price paid. Good service overall. The panda shall be back. 8.5/10
