fall/winter of sushi post #2 ... 

recently, i had dinner plans with my friend (hi, ilana!) ... and we settled on sushi. but where to go? nori.

nori has not one, not two, but three locations ... bucktown/wicker park, edgewater/rogers park/loyola campus & lakeview, were my friend & i dined. 

per their website ... "nori has become a favorite restaurant thanks to their amazing signature maki, delicious signature sauces and extensive dine in, take out, delivery & catering menus." well, alrighty. let's give it a try.

here's what i had ... 

japanese veggie salad :
daikon, kampyo, oshinko, kaiware, yamakobo & avocado. 
this was the most bizarre salad i have ever eaten ... legit japanese veggies. most were tasty, except for those carrots, which are maybe the yamakobo. they were frightening.

spinach maki :
subtitute soy paper, add jalapeno.
basic & tasty ... the soy paper was option is nice ... and the added jalapeno again added a delicious crunch.

vegetable combo maki :
avocado, cucumber, sweet gourd & asparagus.
a little rice heavy, which made it hard to taste the actual veggies. but a solid vegan option ... again, the soy paper is great!

for vegans, nori is just a basic basic basic sushi place ... but they are quick & tasty. so if you're in a hurry and happen to be near diversey & sheffield, it's worth a shot.
