Sushi Miso Review

Sushi Miso is a quaint sushi restaurant located at 1561 Dunmore Road SE in Medicine Hat.

The food is prepared rather quickly and almost entirely made by hand, but nevertheless, I have never been disappointed. The restaurant boasts a wide selection of menu items, ranging from the archetypal raw fish to more “Americanized” sushi, which has chicken in it, to anything else you might ask for in a sushi restaurant.

The norm for me and friends to get is Miso Soup to start with, which is a salty broth filled with chives and tofu, followed by at least a roll (sliced into 6 smaller rolls) each, or three rolls (18) for two of us, or 5 rolls (42) for three of us. Despite looking like a small portion of food, one roll sliced into six smaller ones is enough to fill me up, and what is more, the ends of the roll are usually left untouched, so you get a little bit extra salmon, chicken, or whatever you ordered, sticking out of the ends.

The great thing about Sushi Miso is definitely the fact that it is not fast food and does not have all the additives and preservatives that other fast food places have. When I am done eating, I do not feel physically bad from eating it, as I might from McDonalds or any other fast burger place. Our bills at the end of the meal generally range between $6.00 and $10.00, comparable to most restaurants.

    How do you know there’s no additives or preservatives? Where do they get their fish and how do they keep it?

    It’s unfortunate we’re not as awesome as Calgary in the sense that I can typically find sushi there for like 2-3$

    This is Medicine Hat Media, not Calgary Media-sparta!

    Also that site references fish as ‘everyone’, not to say that their content is invalid, haha. And in any case, according to the site: 2) Worth the risk. Indeed omega-3s are SO very good for you,

    Everything has pros and cons too I guess, I would sooner take my chances with a full on sushi diet than do a repeat of “SuperSize Me”.

    Tapeworms can also be good at destroying pathogens ingested or whatever the case, those House-sized tapeworms are the ones you want to not get. Ask Vaughn about getting medically implanted tapeworms for traveling in foreign countries.

    You call that dangerous? I regularly eat out of dumpsters – I heat it up first of course, I’m not totally crazy.

    Ya, Nolan. Sushi is serious business, don’t even joke about it.

    lol, I forgot about this.

    Being a complete fanatic about sushi like this can tend to make one look like a fanboy (Sean)

    Great post. YOu make it seem so easy to share your experiences. I wish I could do as well in sharing on my blog. I just got it started and sometimes feel stuck on what to share or if it is the right thing to share. what to do?

    Thanks for your comment.

    Medicine Hat Media sort of struggled at the start with content, but I’m pretty sure now we’re the biggest blog in Medicine Hat. Overall I think we tend to try to write about events, restaurants, or things in general that are relevant to what’s going on in the city or in the immediate area, or things we know people do search for from experience in working in the industry of website development.

    I’m not overall a big fan of sushi; however, I’m convinced that the “Chilli Chicken” and “Dynamite” sushi rolls at Sushi Miso are the best tasting sushi you can get in town, especially if you are like me and aren’t crazy about sushi.

    Its too bad because Sushi Miso is probably the best sushi place here; however the lady who runs the service is terribly rude and continuously yells at her staff in front of customers. Its awkward and has caused them to lose a lot of business. I’ve also seen her grab the arms of her waitresses and yell hysterically. I feel so sorry for those waitresses!

    seriously diana?? that’s just crazy and not the least bit true. she is nothing less than extra polite and courteous to everyone, including waitresses/staff and customers. we’ve been going for 4 years and will continue to do so:)

    No, Amber, it’s totally true. I go there all the time and have been for nearly a decade now. Most nights she’s pretty good but there are definitely nights where she goes crazy, both on wait staff and on customers if they rub her the wrong way. It’s embarrassing. She’s lucky she sells such good food, because if she were relying on her character she’d be out of business!
