A little simple lunch with a simple hang-out with a friend: Jenny and I had sushi at Mi-NE Japanese Restaurant last week. It’s a restaurant that has a location in Richmond Hill (and apparently is not linked to the locations in Markham, Aurora, and downtown*). It has garnered fairly high reviews online and is worth checking out.
We ordered a lunch combo each. There’s not too much to say in particular about the lunch since it’s primarily just sushi and sashimi. It’s your basic Japanese bento box/lunch combo.
I liked my selection of sushi since the assorted nigiri sushi was soft and fresh. The spicy salmon rolls were huge! It was still possible to fit a whole one into your mouth but you really had to make sure your mouth was kept closed to chew it all down. This provided lots of breaks and pauses during our chat to allow the big sushi rolls to be devoured. Everything was really fresh and presentation looked great too.
I tried the California roll from Jenny’s lunch and it was really good! The ingredients are yummy and fresh.
All in all, Mi-NE is a nice Japanese place for sushi and rolls.
*(While researching about this restaurant, I noticed that this Richmond Hill location doesn’t seem to be linked to the other three locations even though all of them have the same name. Does anyone know if this RH location comes from the same owner as the other 3 locations? Actually, this RH location restaurant has a different website from the Markham/Aurora/downtown Mi-NE, so it must be a different owner, but then why are the restaurant names the same?? )
*Upon further research, it seems the difference is in the Mi-NE versus Mi-Ne. This is all very confusing. I also noticed that this RH location restaurant refers to themselves as simply “Mine” on their website but also refers to themselves as Mi-NE on the top of the browser. So which one is it?
