Snacks and Salads
When it comes to snacks and salads, the Nasu Dengaku with heirloom tomatoes, roasted eggplant, yuzu miso, crispy onions, and chives is refreshing and delicious.
Another favorite is the Wagyu Gyoza Dumpling served with spicy mayo and Japanese black vinegar soy or the Organic Edamame featuring your choice of black truffle salt, smoked salt, or spicy garlic salt.

Soups & Noodles
When it comes to the soup and noodles at Mizumi, you have to try the Lobster Miso Soup or the Inaniwa Udon Noodles, which has poached organic egg, shrimp tempura, organic shiitake mushrooms, yuzu, and an ichiban-dashi stock.
Some of the most popular entrees at Mizumi include the 50 Hour Wagyu Veal Cheek with red sake ponzu reduction and crispy garlic or the A5 Miyazaki Wagyu Beef Fried Rice, which has seared A5 wagyu beef, slow-cooked Jidori egg, and pickled yellow radish.
The SRF Wagyu Steak featuring a karubi sauce, seasonal mushrooms, Yukon golden potatoes, and charred napa cabbage or the Organic Chicken Teriyaki with Jerusalem artichoke purée are highly sought after, too.
Specialty Sushi Rolls
Favorites from the specialty sushi roll menu include Crispy Rice With Spicy Tuna Sushi topped with sweet soy, the Seared ‘Aburi’ Salmon Belly Sushi with a spicy radish relish, or the Spicy Yellowtail Roll with chili garlic crunch.
The Scallop Tataki And Crispy Shrimp Roll seared Hokkaido scallop, crunchy shrimp, cucumber, avocado, and fresh jalapeño, Seared ‘Aburi’ Yellowtail with sansho powder and yuzu pepper, or the Toro Sliced Scallion Roll is our personal go-to’s though.
The Teppanyaki menu is only available in the more intimate teppanyaki room. The teppanyaki room is where you can experience live tableside cooking.
For Teppanyaki, choose between various proteins like the Seafood Trio or American SRF Wagyu Sirloin, garlic fried rice or yakisoba noodles, and an array of appetizers. Your meal is then served with pickled Japanese vegetables and red miso-blend miso soup.
