Stingray Stung

These fish need a little more schooling

The yakiniku was a little like sukiyaki, save that the beef was finely shredded. It was quite good with the sticky Japanese rice served with it. I applaud Stingray for doing more with its miso soups. In Japan, miso might have a variety of ingredients other than the standard tofu and seaweed, and Stingray's Trippin' Miso with red soy bean paste, as well as shiitake and enoki mushrooms, is an excellent example of same. I liked less the Thrilla in Manila Miso. The clams tasted off to me, and there was too much miso used, making the broth overly salty.

Despite Stingray's flaws, I'll give it a tentative recommendation, with a warning: Get into a Drift-like winning streak, or else I'm putting on my cheerleader outfit and doing my Kirsten Dunst Bring It On impersonation outside the restaurant until it improves. And believe me, people, no one wants to see that during supper.
