First time at Le Cafe Michi.
All in all it was a good experience. I ordered the Cafe au Lait Chirashi at first as well as a plate of assorted sashimi afterwards.
The Chirashi was very good. The amount of sashimi was comparable to the assorted plate I had afterwards and the pieces were fresh and delicious. Uni was very a highlight, but the others were good as well. I would of prefered the manguro (tuna) to be a little softer. Under the sashimi was a thin layer of egg which was new compared to other experiences I've read. And under that between the rice was a good amount of unagi. It was delicious overall, fresh fish, well seasoned rice, and a unagi with each spoonful to finish it off.
I believe they used freshly grated wasabi too,definately not the pasty wasabi you usually see.
Sashimi plate was good, similar to stuff on the chirashi.
cafe michi is great if you're starting off and looking for the basics without too many untried types of sashimi and such.
Price could of been a tiny bit cheaper, the chirashi was 35 now, and the sashimi i believe 28.
The place is small, reservations made not be necessary sometimes, but I had one. We sat in the small back room where the sushi bar is.
Cakes were good, my friend and I tried the green tea cake and the chocolate sakecake. Sake was a bit strong, but good . Greentea cake was delicious.
