Name: Su-Shin Izakaya
Address: 159 Aragon Ave Coral Gables, FL 33134 (305) 445-2584
Review Type: Business (Restaurant)
Review: Su-shin Izakaya is Japanese owned and Japanese run. When you walk in, they shout a welcome in English, much like the standard irashaimase in Japan. On the right side the wall is lined with specials similar to traditional izakaya you find in Japan.
The food is generally good, with some items that stand out as very good and very authentic, and other items at good to mediocre.
The tonkotsu ramen is fantastic and very authentic. The sushi is good. The miso eggplant is delicious. Gyoza is very good.
The vegetable udon that I ordered was not great. The vegetables they used were an odd choice and the broth didn’t taste like I am used to in Japan; it was a little bland.
We definitely like this place and go there at least once a month. My husband’s Japanese co-workers chose to live near this restaurant and they are regulars.
