Y’all. Paddy and I went back to Miyako House Asheville and ordered up a bunch of super fun and very delicious rolls to split! We got the Snow White roll, the Thunder roll, and the Hot Girl roll. We enjoyed all three very much, and I can’t wait to go back for more! Recommend.

Chef Naomi Mikami from Wakuwaku Eatery came by my house again yesterday, and this time she not only brought me some of her amazing pressed oshizushi, but this time she showed up with two INSANELY CUTE obento boxes! One with teriyaki salmon, one with fried chicken, both with an assortment of totally delicious bites, all of which were new to me. Kinchaku, sunomono, nakazuke, and onigiri among them. This food — available to order online only — is truly something special, Asheville, and I can not recommend it highly enough! Thank you, Chef! You’re doing great things! ????
