“One cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well.”–Virginia Woolf, A Room of One’s Own
I’m not sure about everyone, but I do love a good sushi place. Therefore, I’m reviewing this sushi restaurant in Austin called Midori. When you first pull up to the restaurant, it doesn’t look like much. However, when you go inside, it is the cutest and most home-y feeling you’ll ever have! They have booths and tables for you to choose from which I always love in a restaurant. The staff was delightful and very accommodating. My friend and I had a reservation for 8 p.m. but due to some setbacks, we had to move it to 9 p.m. They weren’t mad at us for doing this on a busy night and moved the reservation for us, no problem. When we finally arrived, we were seated in the cutest booths and given a ginormous menu. There were plenty of options to choose from.
We immediately ordered edamame, and it was the perfect ratio of salt, not too salty but not too bland. We ordered the Phoenix Roll (the roll on the left), Spanish Mackerel Nigiri (the bottom right nigiri), Yellowtail Nigiri (the nigiri on the left), and some Fatty Tuna Nigiri (the top right nigiri). I would 100% recommend the Spanish Mackerel Nigiri and the Fatty Tuna Nigiri! My friend loved the Yellowtail Nigiri and the Phoenix Roll; however, they were not my cup of tea personally. The roll was good, but it was fried. I knew this; however, I came to realize that fried rolls just aren’t for me!
Midori’s overall is a fantastic place to get some sushi. If you’re ever in the Austin area, I would 100% recommend going to this restaurant. Even on a busy night, there were plenty of seats! The staff was so warming and welcoming, and they made sure to make you feel right at home. I will recommend everything that I got!
