We were near Logan Square and headed to Yusho for their Sunday Noodle set meal. My aunt saw them featured on TV, so we went. Owner and Executive Chef Metthias Merges created Yusho using influences from his trip to Japan and you can see it in the decor and the menu.
The interior looks pretty amazing!! Everything is breathtaking and there is so much to look at.
The back room has a nice feeling as well. Lots of natural light make you think like you’re eating outside.
Only on Sunday, the noodle set meal is $20 and you get a beverage, a choice of noodle and a dessert.
Chicken Skin ($5.50) is topped with Japanese mustard, garlic, and togarashi. It’s really nice and crunchy with the sweet and savoury toppings. Highly recommended.
We get a choice of their draught cocktail or home-made soda. A majority of us got the strawberry soda and it was pretty great. I can’t remember what the draught cocktail was but it was also pretty good. Not too alcoholic.
Logan Poser Ramen has a crispy pig’s tail (not actually a pig tail), hen egg, nori, cucumber, and bonito flakes.
Maitake Mushroom Ramen is served with the broth and noodles separate from the toppings. The other items in this ramen is angry red ball, tofu, umeboshi, and a hen egg.
Grilled Shrimp Ramen has a skewer of grilled shrimp, bonito, kimchi, and bamboo shoots. The kimchi added a nice acidity and crunch to the dish.
The soft serve ice cream has hibiscus, thai basil, tamarind, and sancho pepper crunch. It’s a crazy unique soft serve with strange flavours.
Overall, the ramen was pretty decent but it’s a nice spin on the traditional ramen dishes. It was a good set meal and enjoyable.
