Tokyo Marina

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.
