I am a food lover. I travel to many places and always get serious to try either restaurants recommended or to search for a new advanture. I have a way of visually exam and tell which restaurant I should try or avoid. Of course when I find a good restaurant I almost always like to comment on the dishes and prices and services.
I do honest reviews and like to even review dishes that I did not order. Because I can see the presentation and almost can taste the dishes without actually tasting it. Yes I am that good!

Favorite Foods:
Chinese, Italian, Mexican, Thai and Vietnamese foods.
Favorite Drinks:
I like mostly sweet after dinner wines
Picky About:
Good Chinese dishes and American dishes if the price is high.

Special Chirashi or Chirashi This dish used to be top but still good just not as good as before  on 7/29/2010
Taste: 4   Presentation: 3   Originality: 3 Review: Sometimes I get shreded daikon (white radish) and othertimes I don't included in this dish. Yes, I prefer to have daikon. Ask for the daikon becasue I think the correct way to eat Chirashi is with daikon. Every piece of fish must be fresh without exceptions. Being a busy restaurant, Mikuni has no problem providing fresh Chirashi. The challenge is how many pieces and what varieties of fish you get. If you really love Chirashi, I would recommend Sheige Sushi on Madison Ave. in Sacramento. Check out that restaurant. Sheige gives you a more beautiful presentation of Chirashi with about 14-16 pieces of fish. Mikuni is fine for its Chirashi but Sheige is better.

Soup and Salad combo Creamy soup with Spinach green salad  on 7/28/2010
Taste: 4   Presentation: 5   Originality: 5 Review: The soup was excellent to tast but hard to digest later. This maybe due to the creamy aspect of the soup. I thought the spinach salad was on the light side meaning there were not enough leaves to eat. The dressing was little sweet and just right for the taste. Of course few pieces of cheese added well to the taste buds. Other than the quantity of the salad, I would say the combination tasted fine.

Pepper Steak Cavatappi Pasta very tender beef  on 7/28/2010
Taste: 5   Presentation: 4   Originality: 5 Review: The tenderloin deserves its name because it is tender to eat the beef. The sauce is good with mushroom and the tomatoes chopped were generous. This is a pasta dish and the meat with the mushroom and peppercorn sauce was filling. The taste was quite Italian! nothing spicy and I am okay with that. If you like Parmesan cheese, it does have a final layer on top of the sauce. I would enjoy the dish with the cheese or without it. I would order it again if I am hungry for beef and pasta.

Mikuni Japanese Restaurant Mikuni is cool but Mikuni in the 80's and 90's was even better.  on 7/29/2010
Overall: 3   Service: 3   Decor: 3   Clean: 3   Price: $$$ Review: Mikuni came a long way since 1980's when it was a regular restaurant on Hazel Ave. in Sacramento. It has expanded in space and created many interesting sushi rolls and dishes. I missed the all-you-can-eat salard bar and the owner decided to get rid of the salad bar for whatever reasons!!! I missed it. This is why I said that Mikuni was even better in the 80's or 90's. Each dish had more on the plate. To be fair to Mikuni, the quantity is acceptable (just not great like before) when you compare what you get from other Japanese restaurants. No question about the quality: they are always fresh and I feel safe to eat here. I would not just go and eat at a so called Japanes restaurant with a Japanese name. Yes, you do need to watch out for that. A Japanese restaurant run by Japanese style management is clean and strict to food safety (I believe). Unlike some places (not to name them here), they have much more to be desired in the cleanliness. For example, the knife used to cut raw meat (other than fish) should not be used to cut raw fish. This place has a bar as you enter and a beautiful salt water fish tank to see and feel relaxed. The place is up beat and lots of business people attend as well as families. I prefer lunch menus for the bento boxes because they are better for the value. You do feel welcomed as you enter with the greetings. The wheel to turn for birthday persons should be adding more real gifts not just cheap cups, bag of rice or T shirt. Afterall, this is your birthday and you already spent lots of money inviting friends to eat here. How about that, Mikuni management?

Sienna Nice American fusion hidden in El Dorado Hills, CA  on 7/28/2010
Overall: 4   Service: 4   Decor: 5   Clean: 5   Price: $$$$ Review: Sienna is located in a small shopping mall in the El Dorado Hills. It is located near few other retail and office complex with European look. Actually it is a pleasure just to walk around the area. The decor is nice and it was my first visit. I noticed another dish (next table ordered it)called sesame tofu over celandro rice at over $11 for lunch menu. I did not order the dish but thought that this dish was expansive. If you like atomosphere this is very nice for indoor or outdoor eating. I only tried one dish and my wife tried one. That is the extend of our experience with food they serve. I will be back to modify my comments after I try more dishes.
