Sushi in the Suburbs

There are many great things about living in the suburbs versus the city. Bigger living spaces, plentiful parking, and indoor malls just to name a few. But one of the many advantages of being in the city is all the fantastic restaurants. In the city, one can find just about any style of food any time of the day or night. But thanks to Kinta Sushi, us suburbanites can have a little taste of city life without the parking meters.

Kinta Sushi is this tiny little Japanese restaurant in a strip mall in Carol Stream. From the outside, it looks like nothing special. But as soon as you walk in, the great atmosphere and friendly staff make you feel welcome and hungry. It is a bit small, with just 4-5booths and 4-5tables and then some stools at the sushi bar. The decor is like hip Asian-chic with a little splash of traditional thrown in for good measure. Very cute!! The perfect date restaurant or girls' night out.

Most importantly, the food is fantastic! The portions are large, but the prices are not. We got California Rolls and Miami Rolls and Ginger Chicken Rolls and Edamame. It was all amazing. Seriously some of the best food, not just the best sushi, I have ever had. They brought out some sort of broth and tofu soup as an appetizer. And even though I am not a fan of tofu, it was really yum. Our total bill was around $35 for generous portions of all the food you see above. Can you beat that, city sushi restaurant?
The staff was attentive but not pushy. The place had a steady stream of people for both eat in and carry out for the entire 2hours that we sat there. And although the atmosphere was great, the pull to get back there is to have the taste of that Ginger Chicken back on my tongue. It is like one of the best kept secrets in all Dupage County.

So if you get that urge for good Japanese food with quiet ambiance but you don't want to drive downtown or fight for street parking, Kinta Sushi is your best bet.

My husband grew up in Japan. Although we haven't tried this restaurant, yet, a former classmate of his from his high school in Japan LOVES this restaurant.

Wow Mandie, that's a good sign! And btw, that's me breastfeeding and eating sushi with chopsticks all at once - very talented, I am! :)
