Hiro Sushi, North Miami Beach

North Miami Beach, FL 33160
Hiro Sushi in North Miami Beach is located on the north side of NE 163rd Street in a nondescript shopping center. We went for a sushi meetup and were excited to try a new sushi restaurant. Our findings – the staff were friendly, service fast and the atmosphere wasn’t bad although the decor seems influenced by disco. And yes I’ll be back next time I’m down that way because all fish tasted fresh – a firm requirement!
I tasted grilled ika (squid) that was cooked just right – just chewy enough to make you spend a little time with the taste. My chirashi-don was also well assembled, although I would have preferred the rice to be slightly vinagered.
My rainbow roll was truly uninspired though, despite the fresh fish. It was just boring, from the kani (crab stick) in the inside to the very plain rice to the bland fish toppings. Any little thing to make it a bit different than every other sushi joint would have been so nice.
Finally kudos to Hiro for their menu. Really chocked full of small Japanese items, it’s a great place to experiment. Pick something you haven’t tried and live it up a bit.
