You've seen the likes of it before. Mika is a roll peddler, with a laminated menu full of glossy pictures of fancifully named rolls that's separated into categories. A veritable guide to the sushi-uninitiated, it warns them whether what they're about to eat is cooked or raw. But even as the restaurant looks like a quickie lunch kind of a place, it had the ability to wow you if you let it. Snowy white tuna could show up on your plate as sashimi, fanned out and gorgeous, drizzled in sauce and garnished with fried onions. The best time to visit is between 4:30-7 p.m. for their Happy Hour specials, where discounted pieces of deep-fried fish zigzagged with sauce and called "Hot Wing Albacore" will wow you some more.
