Restaurant Muramoto

I found the sushi at Restaurant Muramoto to be lacking. I guess that's my own fault for having higher expectations of sushi in the midwest? The maki roll I ordered, called viper ($15) was rather unappetizing from the browning avocado to the poorly sliced hamachi, even the white rice lacked that firm stickiness needed to keep everything together. The sauces that accompanied, a spicy and an eel sauce were quite good, though. The tako ($4) nigiri were just ok. However, the rest of the meal fared much better - I had a miso soup ($3), a perfect bite of a hoisin glazed pork belly shao bing ($3), and a fantastic sashimi oyster ($6) in ponzu sauce with a quail egg. A local told me (after the fact) not to expect much from the sushi around here, all things considered. If you're coming from the coast, Restaurant Muramoto probably shouldn't make the cut, save exception for small bites and sake.

  3. Those are awesome pictures. It's too bad it's not as good as it looks, but I probably wouldn't have expected much from sushi in the midwest either.
