East Brunswick - Casa Nova 68 --> Miso Ya
Noticed that in East Brunswick, the closed Casa Nova 68 (formerly Perrone's) location has a new sign for a place called Miso Ya, a Sushi and Asian cuisine restaurant. I do not think it is open yet, but the permanent sign is up by the road. Not sure if they took the liquor license.
We were very excited to see Miso Ya's menu and decided to make a trial take out order from this new restaurant since it is in our neighborhood. When I called and asked what was the difference between the Coconut and Tom Yum soups, the girl who answered the phone said, "I don't know." After a few moments of silence, I asked her if she could ask someone to find out. She placed me on hold, returned and replied that the coconut soup was cloudy and the other was not. I ordered the cloudy soup and some spring rolls.
Although the soup was listed as having "bell pepper, mushroom, scallions and cilantro" the product I received looked and tasted to be bits of chicken floating around some coconut milk. Boring and disappointing. The spring rolls were sitting in a pool of grease. Sadly, I would have to hear some pretty great things to order here again and frankly, I worry about their sushi. Oh well.
