Akashi Japanese in South Miami- This hidden gem may be located next to the bustling traffic of US-1 and have a rough exterior, but it is surely worth a trip. Close to the University of Miami and right across from the parking garage of Sunset Place, this Miami restaurant attracts university students, dinner and movie goers, and families. I like to consider Akashi Japanese to be the best Sushi Restaurant in Miami not on South Beach.
Akashi's Menu: Akashi restaurant serves fresh and excellent quality sushi. If you are a "rolls" person, then we recommend the Dragon Roll, which is a combination of tempura shrimp, crabmeat, masago, scallions, asparagus, and spicy mayo topped with avocado. This roll considered is a safe choice in addition to the traditional tuna or salmon rolls. If you would like to get a little crazy, try the Rob Roll, which is rolled inside-out with eel, crabmeat, scallions, asparagus, and spicy mayo with avocado. If you are a straight up sashimi lover, then you can't go wrong with Akashi's Sashimi Mori, which is simply a variety of sashimi. If you are on a date, one option is to order a boat which is a delightful combination of sushi and sashimi.
It can be a little more romantic sharing a boat rather than enjoying individual rolls.Dinner and a Movie: Akashi is conveniently located next to Sunset Place in South Miami, so you can watch a movie or shop before or after you eat.Tips: Parking spots are limited, and you may be tempted to park at the Dry Cleaning Services across from Akashi but don't! Occasionally cars are towed, so use the metered parking.To get more information on Miami Sushi Restaurants or to view Miami Restaurant Menus, visit http://www.restaurantplace.
