Massachusetts Avenue between Harvard Square and Porter Square has been, in my humble opinion, lacking for years in the area of good reliable restaurants. Don’t get me wrong there are some great restaurants along those miles of Mass Ave., but the terrible ones have for too long outweighed the good ones, but now the odds are shifting. In comes, Mix It Sushi Noodle Grill.
I must admit that I was a bit hesitant at first. The name alone brings visions of too many menu items to do anything well. I will be the first to admit and proudly so that they do it and do it like no other.
The sushi is always fresh and always beautifully presented. And for you vegetarians out there they have an amazing assortment of vegetarian rolls. My personal favorite is the Veggie Combo #2, which includes an asparagus roll, veggie salad roll, and a sweet potato tempura roll.
On one of our bitter cold evenings between two snowstorms I slipped on my little boots and trudged through the six foot snow banks to get something warm to eat. Crazy I know, but this place is worth it. I ordered the Pad Thai with vegetables. Now Pad Thai has been a staple in my diet for many years and in many of my travels, but this without a doubt was one of the best Pad Thai’s I’ve ever had. Everything was cooked to perfection.
For you Cantabrigians who have not been here yet, shame on you. You won’t get this quality of food or great service in too many places around town. If you’re visiting, make the short walk from Harvard Square. Do what you have to, but pay a visit to Mix It. You won’t regret it.
