The weather was absolutely gorgeous in Chicago this past weekend! I knew I had to find a patio for an outdoor meal. Walking through Ravenswood on Saturday evening, I happened upon Fin Sushi. They have a lovely, inviting outdoor patio, with twinkle lights, colored umbrellas, and ample seating. I knew this was my spot! My friend and I decided to start with a few appetizers. We ordered the Gyoza and the Bacon Wontons. If you’re not familiar, gyoza is pan-seared pork dumplings, usually served with a shoyu sauce. These were fantastic! The outside was perfectly crispy and the pork was juicy and delicious. The wontons were stuffed with bacon, cream cheese, celery, and garlic. I love wontons and these did not disappoint. I’m used to a more traditional wonton, so I really enjoyed the surprise of the bacon. The menu is expansive with lots of different options, but I was in the mood for sushi. I decided on the Spicy Salmon Roll: salmon, scallion, spicy sauce, chili oil, cucumber, and masago; and the Lava Spider Roll: crispy soft shell crab, cream cheese, avocado, tempura crumb, mozzarella cheese, bacon chip, and unagi sauce. The Lava Spider roll was very interesting- the whole roll was covered in baked mozzarella! I had never had a roll like that before. I loved the inside- the soft shell crab was delicious and the combination of the cream cheese and avocado was rich and tasty. The Spicy Salmon Roll was wonderful! The flavors were simple and it had a great snap to it! My friend ordered the Crazy Noodles with Shrimp: stir fried noodles, shrimp, hot chili, broccoli, tomato, bamboo shoot, bean sprouts, mushrooms, bell pepper, and basil. She loved it and after the bite I had, I can understand why. The noodles were perfectly cooked and all the veggies were fresh and crisp. The sauce had a lovely bite to it, but wasn’t overpowering. I can’t wait to come back and try more menu items here!
