The Japanese fast-food made entirely by hand

Every day throughout Italy, thousands of Japanese restaurants (or those who pass themselves off as so) open their doors to customers. The downside of this popularity is that, in our thinking, the rich gastronomy of the Rising Sun is limited only to sushi in its many forms. When we talk about eating Japanese, everyone immediately thinks of just sushi, always  differentiating between the extra-luxury restaurants or the “all you can eat” places. But, there is a place in Florence where Japanese cuisine recovers its authenticity: Miya.

Miya is a small place between Piazza Stazione and the San Lorenzo Market, in Via Nazionale, and although its very small size brings it closer to a take-away store, there is some room at the counter for those wishing to eat on the spot. The smallness of the room is counterbalanced by its minimal appearance, dominated by the white color, which, in turn, gives off an idea of precision and cleanliness.

Behind the counter, through the windows, you can see edamame and raw noodles, and behind them there’s a kitchen, where everything is cooked to order. While offering purely Japanese dishes, the menu is organized as one of an Italian restaurant, with appetizers, starters, main courses and desserts, and related sections for house specialities: gyoza, ramen, udon and donburi.

Simple preparations for simple meals. It is precisely this simplicity that you can trust, the goodness of things made by hand. If you want a quick break, you can also stop for a quick snack with dorayaki and green tea.

Perfect as a take-away, life saving when you want to eat Japanese food that doesn’t cost an arm and a leg while being certain of eating good food, Miya will surely become your new regular place, and the casual address to resort to when looking for a easy but quality food solution.

We can't. That's why every week we share the best experiences florence has to offer.
