Do you like eggs? Do you like rice? Do you like comforting snacks that will make you feel good all over?
Then check out this dish over at Miso Izakaya. It’s called a shoyu tamago ($3, translates to “soy sauce egg”) and sits on top of a seasoned grilled rice cake with a crunchy top layer. It’s not a new dish, but it has gone through some tweaks here and there. I’m happy to say it has been steadfast in deliciousness for a while now. I enjoy it with beer or a barley-based shōchū cocktail that the restaurant’s excellent and extensive drink menu offers.
I dug up an old email from chef/owner Guy Wong who stated: “This dish was inspired by breakfast that I enjoyed in Japan. It was simple freshly cooked rice with just egg yolk stirred together, so delicious.”
Miso Izakaya, 619 Edgewood Ave. SE # 101, Atlanta. 678-701-0128.
