Visit Mikado Japanese in Lake Mary

I have finally found a sushi place in Lake Mary, Fla., that I am pretty happy with. I was sad when Fuji closed its Lake Mary location, and have been looking for a replacement. It just so happens that Mikado Japanese Cuisine took over the spot where Fuji used to be.

Mikado offers a huge selection of sushi rolls, hibachi and bento boxes. I have had both hibachi and sushi, and deem them to be "pretty good", or around 4 out of 5 stars. It depends on which rolls you order. Mikado's signature rolls are pricey, but they are more flavorful than many of their standard rolls. Of the signature rolls, the Volcano Roll has been our favorite so far. Nice kick of spice and beautiful presentation. The Drama Queen roll is also very interesting and different, with jalapeno slices adorning the outside. 

You can still get some good standard rolls for half the price, though. My favorite so far is the Voodoo Roll, which has spicy crawfish, tempura flakes and cucumber. I love the spice in this dish. The Spicy Crispy Roll with fried shrimp, avocado and spicy sauce is also delicious.

Mikado has a nice atmosphere, but it is much faster for me to pick up my order to go. Especially on a Friday or Saturday evening. The wait for our meal on one recent Friday night was a half hour! However, if you don't visit in person, you miss some really great happy hour specials. 

Where: 3899 W. Lake Mary Blvd., #117, Lake Mary
