Hachi's Kitchen - Chicago
The Logan Square-based Hachi's Kitchen is a big favorite among neighborhood residents.
While conventional rolls like spicy tuna and California (avocado, crab stick, flying fish egg and cucumber) remain big hits, it's the more chef-driven offerings setting Hachi's apart from its competition. Hot bets include spicy creamy tako maki (chopped octopus mixed with fish egg, scallion & spicy sesame mayo) and volcano maki (creamy lobster mixed with wasabi & tobiko, topped with maki & spicy tempura crunch).
The owners are also behind Sai Cafe, in Lincoln Park.
