Miso Phat Sushi Bar has so many fans, Food Network celebrity and foodie host of Diners, Drive-ins and Dives, Guy Fieri and his crew featured Miso Phat on one of their episodes. Guy loved the miso phat poke and said, “It’s so fresh it’s almost jumping into my mouth,” If you want to check it out, the recipe is featured for everyone to see on the Foodnetwork.com website. It’s like an explosion of flavors featuring a deeply sweet and soy sauce combo, with a crunchy shrimp tempura mixed with sweet crab meat. The Unagi sauce and agave nectar adds a sweet dimension of flavor too.

If the miso phat poke isn’t your thing, try one of the many other rolls combos on the menu. Check out the eight-piece specialty rolls. The names will make you smile. Watch out for the 007 roll. It combines spicy tuna with shrimp and avocado topped with Unagi sauce and sesame seeds. The 69 Roll has that Unagi sauce too.

One thing about this popular Kieli hot spot. It’s small and it fills up quickly. Don’t let the dining area fool you. It’s small, but the tables are spaced far enough apart you don’t feel cramped. You can also order take-out if you are on the go. One last thought. Order the lilikoi ice cream, a tangy frozen treat made from Hawaiian passion fruit. Another Miso Phat standout.
