misoSushi is a fairly light meal. Between the savory fish, filling rice and light components that make up your common roll, it’s a meal that does exactly what every good meal should: provide you with nutrients and kick any hunger to the curb. If you’re someone that usually loads up on food when out for a meal, a standard sushi dish may not be enough to hold you down. The good news is, sushi isn’t the only Japanese cuisine offered at Sushi Joa. If you want to build your meal with even more delicious Japanese cuisine, here are a few of the dishes that never fail to become favorites.


This delicious side dish also makes a great appetizer! Edamame is a immature soybean that are still in the pod. These bright green pods are usually boiled or steamed in their pods before serving, and then lightly salted. Because the soybeans are still young, this dish is softer and easy to eat. Simply place the pod to your mouth, squeeze the pod to push the soybeans into your mouth, and enjoy!


In its entirety, Miso is a Japanese seasoning that is used for a wide range of recipes. Miso is the end result of fermenting soybeans with salt, as well as a fungus known as Aspergillus oryzae. At times, other ingredients like barley and rice may be added to the fermentation process to provide an entirely new flavor. Miso can be used in soups, pastes or on vegetables, to create delicious meals. We recommend a miso soup before your meal.

Sushi Joa incorporates our own family recipes into the menu, making every dish a special one. Next time you stop in, enjoy one of our appetizers and sides with your sushi meal, and experience the full circle of Japanese cuisine.
