The capital of the Midwest packs a punch when it comes to sushi, enjoy the colors as we recommend some of our favorite places for maki, sashimi, & beautiful rolls…
Let’s begin with a tasty local option in Kabuki Japanese Restaurant. A 5 minute walk from the hostel (2473 N. Clark St.) this place serves imaginative maki that leaves your taste buds begging for more. In addition, their tempura (seafood and/or vegetables in a fried batter) proves to be a warm delight on a chilly autumn evening. Enjoy with some of their signature sake (traditional Japanese warm wine made from rice). Average maki: $8.
Taste the flavor of Asian culture in Chicago cuisine. Whether its Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Vietnamese, or Thai, we have some wonderful recommendations for you.
Tank Noodle has become quite the local icon for best Vietnamese food. In fact, they are located in the Vietnamese-influenced side of Uptown (Broadway & Argyle). “You’d swear they’ve got a sushi chef trapped in the kitchen, though: dishes are presented with fussy attention to color and arrangement, and rarely do vegetables, meat, or noodles seem over- or undercooked.” states their website, and this rings true, just be prepared to be confronted with crowds on a weekend evening. We recommend the Signature Pho.
