New food crazes continue to show up in Chicago, and one of the newest is the sushi donut. The sushi donut made its splash in California and now Miku Sushi in Lincoln Square has added it to their menu. Miku Sushi is a short walk on Lincoln Avenue from the Brown Line Western stop and is offering a wide variety of options.
I had the opportunity to enjoy an afternoon lunch and experience what Miku Sushi has to offer. The menu is extensive and has something for everyone to enjoy. I asked my server what was recommended and requested one of each. The table started off with what Miku Sushi is quickly becoming known for: their sushi donut!
A beautiful circular creation was set on our table and everyone pulled out their cameras. It was fun to decide which part of the donut to try. I took a part of the salmon, a few slices of avocado and the rice to go with it. I was blown away by the bite I had. The salmon was nicely chilled and the sushi rice had a lush buttery texture to it that was heaven on the tongue. Next up, was the Spicy Tuna Ravioli with house lemon soy sauce, tempura crunch and spicy crab meat wrapped in thinly sliced avocado.
With our appetizers devoured the table decided what to order next. Each person ordered a different roll to share, so we’d be sure to get a sampling of what Miku has to offer. We were also treated to variety of other options available on the menu. First up, we had two different Ramen dishes that were satisfying and filling.
Sheer presentation of this roll was over the top. The flavors of the shrimp tempura, salmon and white tuna meld together for a savory bite that you can’t get enough of. Both rolls are show stoppers and meals within themselves. They are sure to have guests coming back over and over again, bringing all their friends who love sushi. I know I will be. As the last piece of roll was being eaten, our server came to the table with a dish that looked like a crown and held jewels of the sea.
As our meal came to an end, we were blown away by the amazing sushi we devoured over the course of our lunch and talked about how we couldn’t wait to come back. I can’t recommend Miku Sushi enough to friends who live in the city. If you happen to be in Lincoln Square and want a place to go, head into Miku sushi and try anything on the menu.
