"I also loved the steamed bun, beef tongue, octopus, and the Logan Poser ramen."
"It's super delicious but it comes in a small glass and there are no refills."

Very creative menu. We had a travelzoo voucher for a five course meal with a cocktail and it was totally worth the money. The drinks are beautifully crafted. The highlight of the meal was right in the middle with the Octopus over a jicama papaya salad. The octopus was so intensely seasoned and delicious and the salad very refreshing. The meal started with a plate of pickles and ended with an angostura bitters ice cream. Both of those were delicious and at the same time flawed. The quail eggs and parsnips were perfect in the pickles, but the cucumbers were overpowering. The ice cream was great, but there was too much of it leaving an intense aftertaste of the bitters. Overall a fantastic meal.

The manager, Timothy, was with out a doubt a wonderful host at the bar when friends and I came in this week. We shared the Prawns, 2xFried Chicken, Lamb Tskune, Fried Chicken Steam Buns, Himachi Poke, before settling in on some Ramen as a main course. My friend swears by the Spicy Chicken, but I went lighter on the spice with the Pork and the broth was out of this world. Each dish has its own unique flavors accented perfectly by the different textures textures. All of this would of have been great but the Sake selection made our night the best time I have had in Chigaco area in a long time. Its also worth noting that Timothy and the entire staff where friendly and inviting but the best part was their extensive knowledge of every dish and its pairings. I could not of had a better time.

The ramen is great. If you want to eat there on the weekends, make a reservation.

Awesome food? If your a foodie person, go to Sumi Robata. YUSHO food quality is not up to par. They need Chef Ramsey to fix up the menu. Kind of greasy and unhealthy. Needs some greens on the menu. Maybe some organic greens, healthy Japanese style. The sauces I didn't even touch after trying. Never order the skintrio....... :/ I have to give one thing I liked atleast, even though it was over seasoned. Their chicken wings. But you can't go too wrong with wings. I don't want to be rude. I'm just a major foodie person. Trust me, Go try Sumi Robata. Good service tho. Waitresses were very attentive :)

We went with a Travelzoo voucher for a five course meal and was a great deal! We enjoyed boozy soadas and a delicious meal that we would happily pay full price. The five courses included house pickles, west coast oysters with yuzu, bacon and chives!, grilled octopus marinated in a green curry on top of jicama/papaya salad, rib-eye steak, and angostura soft serve ice cream! The grilled octopus was THE most flavorful marinated octopus i've ever had. Will definitely be back for a ramen showdown or tempura night. Both look like great options for next time!

Yusho has the finest Japanese Whiskey menu of any restaurant. It has remarkable breadth and depth. But the sake list has a little bit of everything too - both their own canned sake and bottles of some harder to find Junmai Daiginsho - reservations are best but walk in are possible when there are seats at the bar. Noodles are the focus here but don't ignore the pickles and vegetables.

Beware the Pork was very highly spiced with a bright red oil which felt like it was taking the lining off my throat and spoiled both my night out and later my sleep when it settled on my stomach. There was no mention on the menu that the dish was extra spicy. Conversely the Fries, Ice Cream, drinks and service were good. Doubt if I will return.
