Who knew you could find sushi in Little Village, and that it was amazing! Chef Ivan has become a go-to for sushi that is infusing the latin flavors found in this neighborhood. There are all sorts of creative dishes that you'll need to try! Everything is big on flavor and it doesn't hurt that the people who work here are also friendly and personable as well.
