Sushi in Miles City??
Posted by Olivia (+58) 14 years ago
I heard a new restaurant is opening up in Miles City! Apparently it is going to be Pan-Asian and feature sushi. Has anyone heard anything about it??

Only sushi I've heard about in Miles City is my husband's. I suspect the grapevine was bit fermented when you heard this.

Ah, sushi reminds of when I was a kid picking coffee beans in Guatemala? Is sushi made with Tuna?

Actually, Sushi is not made from raw tuna, or any other fish, by definition.

Sushi is simply small portions of cooked sticky rice. It is sometimes served with raw or cooked fish. More frequently, however, you will find it rolled with pickled vegetables, wasabi, and a seaweed wrap.

Sashimi is raw fish. You will likely find sashimi to be served cold, sliced thinly into slabs, with shredded vegetables, pickled ginger (yum).

So, while sushi may be served with raw fish, the non-existence of raw fish does not in anyway invalidate the existence of sushi. Sashimi, on the other hand, cannot exist without raw fish.

A wonderful fresh Ahi Tuna does make a delectable and tender sashimi. A good one, deep red in color - yet eerily translucent - will melt in your mouth. You will never forget they sheer gustatory and olfactory ecstasy you will experience. Never.

I sure hope the rumor is true. I love fresh sushi and sashimi!

When you use multiple exclamation points it feels like you are glaring sternly at me. It makes me uncomfortable.

SUSHI IN MILES CITY WHAT A BOREING TOPIC IF YOU PEOPLE DONT COME UP WITH SOMETHING INTERESTING I WONT READ THIS CRAP ANYMORE. SUSHI IS NOT GOING TO MAKE MILES CITY A BETTER PLACE ONLY THE FIRE DEPARTMENT WILL.

<yawn>

Actually, the small population of Miles City would make it very difficult for a sushi restaurant to survive. You need to keep turning over the fresh fish at a fast pace. A sushi restaurant here in Helena did not, and believe, me, there is nothing more unappetizing than sushi that is a couple of days old.

A better business model would be a pan-asian restaurant as Olivia mentioned, with a limited sushi offering like one or two types of nori rolls. I could see just bringing in sashimi-grade tuna only and offering a spicy tuna roll and a California roll, in addition to fare like teriyaki and tempura. But expecting fresh tuna, salmon, squid, eel, octopus, etc., etc. to be flown daily into Miles City - it ain't gonna happen.

Perhaps a nice pork or chicken sushi. I have always liked my fish sushi feep fried.

Try this, freshly sliced, raw chicken, rolled around a green bean,(this must be a canned bean) allow to stand in a sunny window for two hours then wrap in seaweed, dunk in Miracle Whip, roll in powdered sugar and enjoy. Wash it down with a big glass of warm butter milk containing one human hair. Man oh man, thems some fine eats.

I am, if nothing else, a gourmond.

So where does one buy "Crossroads" like steak in MC these days? If you can't get at decent steak in "cow country" why would anyone even attempt sushi? I tried sushi once in ABQ, NM. I was sick for a week with food poisoning. NEVER AGAIN! If you can't kill it in your barnyard or the back forty, I am not going to eat it.

L.G.,

They can pump your stomach and have you back on the road in 30 minutes. When you return from the ER it would be a great time to try out one of my tasty pork sushi entre's.

Try raw bacon wrapped around a choclate mint, drizzled lightly with ketchup. This is quick and the choclate gives you a little caffine and sugar boost.

I think the Japanese have not been very creative with sushi. I doubt that they even use it for bait.

My husband has made pine nut, basil and tomato sushi. Seriously. Ask around. There are folks in town who ate it.

I think the rule of sushi is...if you order it in a diner, or in a landlocked state, enjoy at your own risk.
Last time I ate sushi was at a Mariner's game. I had a hotdog and sushi. I felt like the United Nations of lunch.

lol @ MCGirl... yup - if you can't drive to the ocean in under an hour... eat at your own risk. This has got to either be a rumour or the world's worst idea. I wouldn't want to be the guinea pig customer at that place.

I got spoiled in Oregon with the fish but here in Des Moines it's surprisingly a steak house that has the better sashimi. But, let's be real... the costs for flying it in regularly are huge and consequently it's expensive here and really will never be as good as even a medicore place on the coast.

I console myself knowing that if I can't have great fish I'm at least in the Midwest where great steaks are the rule... not the exception.

Lastly... Can we please stop the yelling? CAN'T YOU SEE IT'S TEARING THIS FORUM APART?! /runs and slams door/

(Thank you, thank you, I'd like to thank my director, the Academy...)
