Behind the Mask

It is always fun to wander around Asian Town Center, located in the Midtown corridor on Superior Ave, because it is a converted warehouse with very high ceilings and wide corridors. Since the place isn't fully occupied, each time we visit there is a new store open.

Day 180/365 - Miega Korean Barbecue storefront

Today, we stopped by the market on the first floor to purchase some tofu and beni shoga -- a pickled ginger that is very different from the sweet, mild pink or off-white ginger slices served alongside sushi. Beni shoga is vibrant red in color and sour, and is always served cut into thin slivers (julienne).

Several months ago, we ate at Miega on an impulse so I didn't have my camera with me. The meal and service were wonderful -- we were one of two parties at the time. Booths are high-backed wooden benches with lacy individual seat cushions, so it was like sitting at a very Asian aunt's house.  Also, each table has a call button for service which we did not need to use since they were attentive.

The next time we plan on eating here, I will bring my camera. Their grilled salted mackerel is superb.
