Location – 5058 N. Clark (Clark and Winnemac)
Food – I had a great experience at TM. The meal started out with a little veggie salad with a fresh ginger salad. Then they brought outmiso soup (complimentary). I just have to say that this was one of the best miso soups I have ever had (fresh seaweed, substantial broth). Then we ordered age dashi (fried tofu in a sesame sauce) – Delish! For our maki, we ordered the Windy City maki (not my favorite), Kaiware maki (the total dark horse of the night) and avocado maki. I really liked the Kaiware maki, the kaiware daikon added a nice crunchy touch to the roll. I felt special when the server brought out watermelon slices for us to eat at the end of the meal. Fresh and a great finale to a good meal.
Drinks – They have your Sapporo and Kirin beers. What else do you need with sushi?
Service – We were well attended and they offer those nice extra touches (the veggie salad, miso soup, watermelon). They get thumbs up on service from me.
Occasion – The setting here is very casual. Couples, friends, a larger group and a family all were sitting around us. Perhaps if you’re looking for an inexpensive, good quality dinner inAndersonville at a place other than the Hopleaf, come here.
Dress – It’s so casual, anything and everything would work. There were tshirts and suit jackets, dresses and jeans.
Cost – With tip, I paid about $16. Love that I could get full sharing an appetizer, 3 makis and one large beer.
