Chicago Sushi debuts
Do you know what the "three-second hand roll" is? If not, head to the new Chicago Sushi in Des Plaines to find out. Hosting its grand opening on Monday, June 20, chef Kenta Ikehata will be serving hand rolls -- which start with a base of ariake nori that is then topped with seasoned sushi rice and fish such as salmon, tuna or shrimp tempura before being rolled into a cylinder and enjoyed in three seconds -- plus chirashi sushi, appetizers, maki rolls, rice bowls, creamy vegetable noodle soups and the spicy "Red Hot Chili Noodles." Chicago Sushi is offering a 20% discount until the official opening on Monday. Hours are 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. for lunch and 5-9 p.m. for dinner Wednesdays through Mondays; closed on Tuesdays.
Chicago Sushi is at 574 E. Oakton, Des Plaines, (847) 813-5647, facebook.com/chicagosushitky.
