Miso (2) - Sydney

Day 2 of our lunches in the city took us to Miso.

Again, as the menu lacked a variety explicit vegetarian options, my vegan friend decided to order 2 side dishes with rice. She chose the agedashi tofu ($4.80) and the nasu miso ($4.80). She was pleasantly surprised with the size of the side dishes and said that tofu was yum and that the eggplant with splattered miso sauce on top was quite heavenly.

Agedashi - $4.80 + nasu miso - $4.80

Remembering the relatively big portions of the lunch sets at Miso, my other friend and I decided to share. We ordered the Tonkatsu Pork Loin and Udon Set ($17.80) with a side sashimi ($6.80). The sashimi came a nice thickness and good freshness. Awesome seaweed salad to green up the plate as well. The Tonkatsu was very nicely crumbed - not too thick, and nice and crisp, and was a really nice, juicy and succulent pork meat inside. Delicious, especially when dipped in the brown tonkatsu sauce. The udon was average - nothing special. The potato salad blob was very yumminess and my friend downed the yoghurt without much of a complaint.

All up, Miso is pretty good. Fresh ingredients, juicy succulent pork. Quite YUM :) I was a bit disappointed that there weren't more noodle or udon dishes and that most sets came with rice (which I'm not a huge fan of).
