Green Plate, Round Two

I was recently craving sushi, so returned to Green Plate Asian Bistro* to sample something different from their (fairly extensive) menu.  Last time, I ordered the Steak Teriyaki Bento Box, and remembered it was pretty good, so I thought I’d try another bento box.  #roundtwo

I ordered the Sushi Bento Box this time, which includes five pieces of chef’s choice sushi.  I was originally going to order it last time but since my waitress didn’t know exactly what the chef’s choice sushi included when I asked her, I ended up ordering the steak teriyaki instead.  After seeing what I was missing out on, I immediately regretted my decision and vowed that I wouldn’t make the same mistake twice!

From Farm to Grill, Sea to Table at Green Plate Asian Bistro

Noodles, sushi, and meats.  How could a menu get any more complete than that?!

A frolleague of mine recently introduced me to an Asian restaurant she stumbled upon in a suburb of Miami.  Green Plate Asian Bistro* in Doral opened in July 2014 and claims to be “a combination of authentic Chinese, Thai, and Japanese culinary culture with a modern twist.”  Given my inclination towards fusion cuisine, I didn’t hesitate to give it a go.

I went for lunch and tried the Steak Teriyaki Bento Box.  I originally asked for the Sushi Bento, but decided to pick something else since my waitress couldn’t tell me what the chef’s choice sushi was — and I wasn’t in a very risky mood that day.  I was impressed with the extensive menu of bento boxes Green Plate offered.  (Each bento box comes with a choice of miso soup or house salad, a California roll, a spring roll, and seaweed salad.)

Feeling healthy, I started off with a house salad with ginger dressing.  Standard fare, nothing special there — but not that I was expecting anything extraordinary.  I’d give it an okay.
