Mikado is a Japanese restaurant in Austin, TX. The atmosphere is modern, sober and quiet. It is a pleasant address for a romantic diner.
We started with a great coktail made of “plum wine and sprite”, even though the sprite aspect of the beverage might sound strange the result is quite tasty, sweet and refreshing at the same time.
Food wise sushi is good, not overly creative but good. The selection is broad but remains within what is considered palatable and acceptable in America. Japanese sushi are more oriented toward freshness, pure ingredient and fewer of them rather than more.
I had the land and see entree which feature a NY strip adn three jumbo shrimps. The shrimps were on skewers, cooked over coal and tasted fresh, well seasoned and cooked. The meet on the other hand was dry, chewy and looked as if it had been reheated.
Service was decent.
