restaurant review: miga in leonia, nj

IMG_1545Miga
344 Broad Avenue, Leonia, NJ

My coworkers love Korean food so we opted to try Miga one day for lunch. Parking is only street parking but it wasn’t too hard to find a spot. The restaurant was relatively empty so we were able to find a table easily. However, the restaurant had only Asians in it, which is always a good sign at an Asian restaurant.

Sadly, the spot only had a few vegan-friendly options (both are spicy soft tofu soup). The waitress kindly agreed to a vegetable based broth and no egg on top also.

When she brought out the numerous miniature plates of appetizers (featured above), she pointed out which ones I could eat. (Perk!)

It can come with white rice or black rice.

Hope you check out Miga, it’s super cute and even though there aren’t many options for a vegan, it’s nice to try genuine Korean food! With that, enjoy this silly picture …

    • Yup! It’s really popular over here with our huge Korean population!

      The drink is similar to Yakult:
      Yakult, is a probiotic dairy product made by fermenting a mixture of skimmed milk with a special strain of the bacterium Lactobacillus casei Shirota.
