Hopped into Mizuya for a quick-fix dinner. It was actually not as packed as me and my friend thought it would be. Thank gosh for that! There's something rather intimate and cosy about eating at Mizuya, with its small, isolated wooden dining space. It was a rainy, wet day and my feet were drenched. Walking around for the whole day with yucky, damp feet is disgusting and not very fun, so as soon as we walked into Mizuya with its dim lighting I took off my flats. That was totally unrelated to the food, but a small perk of dining at Mizuya!~However, that made taking lovely photos a bit tricky. A redeeming and funky part are the touch screens! Fun to play with but self-esteem destroying when the screen doesn't respond to your touch... Yeah .....
Onto the food! The goooood bit! Entree consisted of the soft shell crab salad. Omnomnomnom, cue happiness.
Super delicious. A great way to start the meal. Crisp, deep fried soft shell crab with creamy mayonnaise and refreshing greens! The natural texture of the soft shell crab means that deep frying it adds a certain crispness that makes it very pleasant to chow down! The lovely mayonnaise was wonderful, splendid, gorgeous... all the lovely words! Honestly though, you really should have the crab with the salad because without it, you can taste the oiliness of the deep fried soft shell crab.. which can be sickening if eaten by itself (too much). By the way, the menu stated the dish contained cherry tomatoes, it came with field (normal?) tomatoes. Interesting, but nothing complaint-worthy.
Then, we had the grilled beef.... More omnomnomnom-ing.
The grilled beef
This was delightful! I love how well it was cooked! It was 'medium well' if I were to "classify" it. Juicy and tender, simply delicious! My main complaint with the dish is the sauce/marinade totally overpowered the taste of the meat at times. Accordingly, the sauce basically overpowered the bean sprouts and the potato... leaving the meat to be the best part of the dish!
Finally, a little dessert in the form of a green tea sundae!
Green tea sundae
I loveeeeeeeeeee green tea, and I looooooooooooooveee ice cream. So yeah. This was perfect. If I had to be fussy and complain about everything, I'd say the strawberry was sour. ... Yeah, pathetic attempt indeed. I just really, really, really love green tea ice cream!
