Best Poke in Chicago
I never order it but I make it at home instead. There are at least two Japanese markets in the suburbs that sell sashimi quality fish.
Mitsuya - Arlington Heights - just off of I-90
Sea Ranch - Wilmette - off of I-94 (Lake Street) and i think they have another location in Evanston
In the city... you might be able to find it at Dirk's Fish Market
I make my version...
Cubed Sashimi Quality Maguro
Toasted Sesame Seeds
I think Hey Sushi is gross and if i had to eat there... only eat cooked sushi items there. I haven't had Roy's Poketini so I can't comment on it.
Mitsuwa sells chopped up tuna, suitable for poke, at a slight discount to the large pieces. I do make my own poke but I miss the seaweed and stuff that they put in the poke in Hawaii.
The one time I went to Todai (a few years ago) they had poke. It was just OK, not very Hawaiian. I also saw a "poke stack" on the menu at that Yard House-- a chain restaurant in Glenivew-- but it did not look like it would really be poke. I'll have to try Roy's version.
BTW, you can get decent Chicago dogs at Hank's Haute Dogs in Honolulu. The proprietors are from the Chicago area.
