Ise Japanese Restaurant

Miami Roll and Crunchy Salmon Roll.

Catching up with my cousin downtown on Wall Street, we stopped by Ise Japanese Restaurant for some rolls and a rice bowl.

Miami Roll: Daily special. Mango, avocado, tuna, cilantro and a bunch of other tasty ingredients combine for tangy-tart succulence.

Crunchy Salmon Roll: Salmon tempura, avocado, cucumber and scallion with teriyaki and balsamic sauce.

The rolls were high-quality and packed with flavor. I mixed my ginger-wasabi-soy sauce mixture with each bite for additional oomph.

Katsu Don.

Nothing like good home-style donburi to complete a meal! We shared the Katsu Don, since we already had two rolls to work on. Boy was this filling. I forget how satisfying eggs, cooked onions and crispy deep-fried breaded pork cutlets over rice can be. The stone pot really maintains the dish's temperature well.

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars. This is more of a mini-review. I normally wouldn't go out of my way for Japanese, so I'd only eat here again if I'm in the area. Impressive rolls and stomach-pleasing rice bowls.
