Misato Sushi and Grill - back again for tasty Japanese supper!

While down in Calgary, we hit up Misato again for a quick Japanese dinner (see previous review here) We went with the favorites and tried a few new dishes too. And we didn't forget about the yummy lobster roll... onto the food!
 We started off the Shrimp Tempura - with its crunchy crisp batter, these babies disappeared quick.

The Agedashi Tofu Deep-fried Tofu Served in a Hot Tentsuyu Broth was lightly deep fried and had a silky interior, served with a tangy unami infused broth... no change from the last time we ate it... yum.

The Chicken Yakisoba was a good sized dish of noodles sauteed in teriyaki sauce, moist tender pieces of chicken  on a bed of sauteed cabbage and topped with strips of toasted nori

The Deluxe Sashimi Chef's Choice of Assorted Sashimi was again beautifully presented.with a good sashimi selection: tuna, marinated mushroom, prawn, salmon, yellowfin, blanched octopus, surf clam and ted tuna. (we had a few people eat some pieces by the time I took the pic)

The Rolls!
The Alaska Roll Imitation Crab Meat, Masago, Avocado, Mayonnaise Wrapped with Smoked Salmon was huge and tasty


The California Roll Avocado & Imitation Crab Meat with Mayonnaise was run of the mill but none the less tasty.

The Mixed Combo had the California Roll, Tekka Maki, Tamago (egg), Tuna, Salmon, and Ebi (shrimp) nigiri sushi. The Tekkamaki was plated with the egg, ebi, salmon and tuna sushi nigiri. The rice was packed a bit loose but seasoned well.

The Unagi Roll BBQ Eel & Cucumber in Teriyaki Sauce was a hit and the moist tender nicely sauced BBQ unagi rolls disappeared like magic

And last but not least, the awesome Lobster Roll.  Its not on the menu, so make sure you ask for it - it has a fair sized chunk of deep fried tender sweet lobster surrounded by creamy cool avocado, cucumber, masago, asparagus and its just yumm-o.


 the VERDICT
Overall, still a great place for delicious appetizers with the multitude of sushi rolls as the star of the show.  If you see the lobster roll, it is a must try!
