What happened in Vegas SHOULD NOT stay in Vegas

Especially, when I found this AUTHENTIC Japanese restaurant with a separate and large VEGETARIAN menu. Oh boy, what a treasure we found! Most Japanese restaurants or sushi bars are owned and operated by Koreans and they are NOT authentic. These kind of restaurants also don't have anything vegetarian in the menu. NOT Miko's! The owners (Miko and Greg) and chefs are Japanese so the food is Japanese and not Koreanized. They have a SEPARATE vegetarian menu. Ask for the vegetarian menu when you order. They also know what VEGAN means. The tempura batter (no egg) is made fresh on site while you are waiting. So if the food takes a bit longer, you know why. The waiting was worth it. YUM YUM YUM tempura! Crispy, not oily, and fresh! Say no more! I also ordered Miko's Special on top of it! Yeah, delicious combo meal! I ordered Vegan Sukiyaki. Wow! Steaming hot and served in a hot flat crock! So goood and authentic and it's a healthy meal! My husband ordered several different kinds of vegan sushi and was very satisfied with the freshness and deliciousness of them. It seems that we pigged out (well maybe we did ) but we didn't eat all these items in one sitting. We went there more than once while we were in Las Vegas area. We wish that Miko's move to Orange County where we live. There were items we wanted to try but running out of time.
You'll need a car since this restaurant is not on the strip. However, it is worth the drive and the price of meals you will spend at Miko's comparing with all the money you'll spend in a casino's restaurant with little vegan/vegetarian options. Unfortunately, I didn't bring my camera to take pictures of the dishes.
