1. Miyabi Sushi
Need a holiday shopping refuel? Located in a strip mall near Westfield Southcenter mall (read: plenty of parking), Miyabi is the perfect pit stop for edomae-style sushi, bento boxes, and tasty izakaya food. Head sushi chef Masaaki Ishikura worked under the legendary Shiro Kashiba (who worked under the legendary Jiro of “Jiro Dreams of Sushi” fame). Purists can find excellent nigiri and sashimi, but for fun, don’t miss the Mt. Rainier roll, a tempura-style tuna and avocado roll topped with crab salad, spicy mayo, and eel sauce. Take the holiday edge off with a Toki Highball, a straight-up mix of Japanese whiskey and club soda.
