We were recommended Sushi Cafe & Shilla Korean BBQ by my sister’s Korean friend – he said it was the best Korean BBQ in Miami. We were in the mood for sushi, so this time around we opted to try the Sushi Cafe section of the restaurant rather than their Korean BBQ section. Although, I will say, the Korean BBQ section of the restaurant was packed – it must be good. When I try their Korean BBQ, I will make sure to add to this post.
For appetizer, we had Tuna Tataki and Kanisu. The Tuna Tataki came with sesame seeds sprinkled over it and it was a nice touch (apparently, it was done by accident but we are not complaining). As usual, the Kanisu was refreshing.
For dinner, we did our research (via Yelp) and got 4 of Sushi Cafe’s popular specialty rolls – King James, Pink Panther Roll, Kamikase, and Sashimi Roll. If you are a fan of spicy, try the Pink Panther – the jalapeño adds a nice touch (also, I love the soy paper). If you love fish heavy rolls, try the sashimi roll – it is riceless and has tuna, salmon, and white fish. If you like cream cheese and fried rolls, try the Kamikase – it is yummy and comes with 12 rolls. If you want to try one of their most raved about rolls, try the King James (honestly, I was not a fan of the warm lettuce in this roll).
For dessert, I strayed and tried something a little different – the Red Bean Ice. I am lactose intolerant, so I thought it was fitting (plus, I love red bean desserts) – I was not told ice cream would be put on top. The dessert came with cookies and cream ice cream (I know, random), red beans, ice, and milk (I asked for it on the side). I gave the ice cream to my family and just ate the red beans with the ice – I know, a bit unconventional but I actually liked it. My parents and sister went for the Thai Donuts and thoroughly enjoyed it.
I cannot wait to go back to Sushi Cafe & Shilla Korean BBQ! Next time, I am all in for Korean BBQ.
