11 sushi spots even your picky eaters will love
Some parents could devour spicy tuna maki every day, but some kids don’t always want to roll with it. So, here are sushi restaurants in the Chicago area that not only serve great sushi, but also unique dining experiences or other options for the non-raw-fish-eating folks.
This Japanese, Latin and American fusion pub is connected to Shaw’s Crab House in Schaumburg. It’s famous for its Hot Rock appetizers (sizzle your own filet mignon or ahi tuna on a very hot rock) and Ramen Burgers (yup, a burger served on ramen fried into circular-shaped buns). Tokio Asian Fusion recently launched a new kids’ menu, with a variety of healthy and indulgent options. Kids can order Cucumber & Avocado Rolls, Steak Tacos, Sweet & Sour Chicken Bites and even that Ramen Burger as a slider. The Tokio Spicy Tuna Roll is a favorite and the Red Dragon Roll looks super snazzy. At the end of the meal, try the beignets that burst with warm, melted chocolate in your mouth.

When you think of Hub 51 in Chicago you might not think of sushi; but its maki game is awesome for families with half-price sushi 3-6 p.m. daily. Order a Tuna & Thai Basil, Spicy Shrimp & King Crab or a handful of other options for less than $10 each. Plus, the new “Happiest Hour” promotion gets your group free Pulled Chicken Nachos when you pay $20 per adult for two drinks of choice.
