Last night, I visited Mizu, a gem of a Japanese restaurant located in the Sherwood Plaza shopping center next door to the Lowe's Foods on Robinhood Rd. Everything about our experience was great! The servers were attentive, the atmosphere was relaxing, and the presentation of the food was beautiful. I love restaurants here in the Dash that make you feel as if you've spirited away out of town, if only for an hour or two. Don't be fooled- the ambiance might be rich, but the prices are very, very reasonable ($6. 95 for my entree, $2.25 a piece for sashimi.)

I ordered the chicken lettuce wraps and an avocado roll. The chicken and veggies for the lettuce wraps were cooked with a really delicious hoisin sauce and served with peanuts and a spicy  sauce on the side. My boyfriend, a proud sushi enthusiast, chose the tuna sashimi. The picture I took with my iPhone doesn't truly represent the vibrant pink color of the tuna, but I think you get a good enough idea of how beautiful it is! The presentation was very elegant and Aaron said the sashimi was delicious  (it takes a lot for him to be impressed and he definitely was with Mizu). Their website, http://mizuwinstonsalem.com/says their chef has 15 years experience in NYC and it was a pleasure watching him prepare the sushi at the sushi bar!

In addition to the sushi I mentioned, Mizu also has a lot of seafood (my mom gets the scallops), noodles, vegetarian options and hibachi entrees. I'll definitely be going back.

  1. I went there two nights ago after reading this and it was FANTASTIC. The waiter chose our entire menu for us - and it was THE BEST sushi I have had in a long time. I can't wait to go back. The service and food was excellent.
