Mizu : Philadelphia

Ahhhh, Mizu.

Mizu was actually the first restaurant I tried in Philadelphia, when I was completely new to the town and apartment hunting. It was quite the introduction too, the start of seeing just how supportive Philadelphia is of smaller restaurants and shops, who are committed to doing their own thing.

Yes, there are more high-end and serious sushi/Japanese places, Morimoto, Zento, blah blah blah. You can see foodies knock that discussion around here. But sometimes, you just get those mundane, every-day cravings for sushi or udon noodles or shrimp tempura that aren't and shouldn't be satisfied with one of those higher end places.

And if you've got that kind of money to satisfy your cravings with those other places, I want to be your bestest friend. No really, please?

Mizu fills that niche nicely. A perfectly satisfying meal can be had for sub $10. Case in point, the vegetable udon noodles and a can of aloe white grape juice.

A perfect antidote for any dreary rainy day.
