Oh, Katsu. How I love you.

Dinner last night at Katsu reminded me how wonderful the restaurant is. We sat at the sushi bar, and had a lovely chat with Katsu. He’s run the restaurant on Peterson for 22 years now. That’s quite a run for a Chicago sushi restaurant. Here’s a peek inside the best sushi place in town.

Last night, Chef Katsu was garnishing all the nigiri with daikon leaves. I didn’t realize they were so minty. My son loved it, and immediately asked if we can grow daikon in our garden. That’s my research project for the day. Here’s a closer look at that sushi platter, which Chef Katsu garnished with flecks of gold.
