mmm-yoyo!!! is a food blog. Kirk is not posting right now (he's enduring transportation), nor is Ed (from Yuma)(who is enduring life without a computer). Cathy (enduring procrastinators) is sharing a meal today.
I first wrote a post about Oiishi in 2006, during my first 'vacation replacement' stint for Kirk and His Missus. Other posts were in 2008 and 2011. Since this is right down the street from home, The Mister and I stop here regularly, but take no photos...we just eat.
Japanese and Thai Cuisine are the menu choices here. Over the years, there's been a remodel of the small interior. Neat, clean, simple. (A pot of green tea is $2.75 and very good.) The 13 seat sushi bar is filled on most nights. The cucumber salad ($3.50) is refreshing, made with a simple rice vinegar and sesame seeds. The satay chicken appetizer ($7.95) can be (and usually is) a meal for me. It's served with a house made peanut based sauce that is thick, smooth and caramel-like in consistency; complimentary to the grilled white meat chicken pieces. The spicy fish plate ($12.95) is served with some sautéed bell peppers and onions and a small side salad along with rice. The spice level here is 1-10 and a 5 is quite pleasant.
A nice, longstanding neighborhood Thai-Japanese restaurant.
