Banana & Leaf (Fusion & Fancy Sushi)
OPENS TODAY! Wed, 19 October 2011, 11 am to midnight
$2 Grab and Go for just this week!
This gorgeous hip, modern and very cool Sushi Fusion Indonesian is in downtown Miami. From the same owners at Little Lotus Tapas. Perfect lunchbox for busy lifestyles and the freshest sushi and sashimi at a great price!
There are a few bar seats and cozy couches with incredibly rich colors that immediately make you think of Indonesia! It’s inside a very posh building called The Loft.
Their concept is Grab and Go Lunch box for busy professionals, students and anyone who loves Asian food. All healthy and freshly made with everything priced around $5. How can you beat that? I didn’t have the menu at the time I was posting this but by the look of the photos Andi sent, they look like just what I’d enjoy eating for my lunch!
My husband and I were honored to be invited to their private party a couple of weeks prior to the opening. Wow, they made the BIGGEST sushi boat that was the length of the whole bar! Their eel was very fresh, so tender and tasty and quickly disappeared. There were mounds of seaweed salad, mayo seafood sticks that was very addictive, summer rolls, a very yummy seafood salad and mountains of salmon and tuna sushi. Funnily enough, I was the only Asian guest there apart from the seafood distributor, hmm. All the guests were loyal regulars at Little Lotus Tapas. I really enjoyed meeting these foodies.
I’ll leave you with a teeny secret, they’re expanding, can’t tell you where yet but Sari is a little empire builder. I so admire her passion for bringing good Asian food, especially Indonesian food to Miami in a clean, modern environment that you want to hang out at.
Grab & Go and tell them Wok Star sent you! And spread the word, share on Facebook, twitter, you know the drill. They deserve to be noticed.
