Last week was so busy I didn't have time to sit down and write a post.
Wednesday we took our youngest to a pediatric dentist in fayetteville. Talk about cool! It looked more like an amusement park than a dentist office. :)
After the dentist we had lunch at Meiji.
We love sushi and this place did not disappoint!
This is a little about the philosophy of Meiji in Chef Darwin Beyer's own words:
Meiji is a small restaurant. That allows me to focus on bringing you the highest quality food. The fish at Meiji is sashimi-grade, and some of the freshest you'll find in Northwest Arkansas. Our sauces are all made from scratch in our kitchen. Vegetables, herbs, and edible flowers are purchased from local farms within a few miles of our front door.
I’m proud to offer fish selections that you won’t see at other local restaurants. We cater to people who love sushi, but I also love to introduce sushi to those who are trying it for the first time.
I invite you to try Meiji. I hope you will find our atmosphere to be elegant without being stuffy, and the food to be the best you’ve ever tried.
Elegant without being stuffy...I love that!!
We all shared the spicy crab salad and the Shoyu Nama Ramen soup. Spencer and I shared a couple different rolls and we got a bento box with salmon for our son. :)
This roll is amazingly light and delicious and just bursting with flavor.
Everything was light and fresh and delicious. They also had fresh wasabi (which was a first for me and I loved it)! Not that regular intense green paste but actually fresh chopped wasabi that you could spoon on each bite and savor.
What a perfect day. The only thing missing was our older son who had to go to school and did NOT understand why he had to miss all the fun!
Meiji Japanese Cuisine is my favorite new restaurant.
Question of the Day:
Do you like sushi? Where is your favorite place to eat out?
