The new neighborhood BYO sushi spot brings Thai and Japanese fare to Portage Park. Named for the Thai word for love (which rhymes with "truck"), the spot does quite a bit of carryout and delivery business but also is filled with neighborhood folks looking for a low-key night out. There's a lineup of contemporary maki rolls such as the Sakura roll, with superwhite tuna, scallion, kampyo, ginger, jalapeno, tempura crunch, hot sauce and red tobiko sauce. There's also creatively named maki like the Green Hornet with tuna, yellowtail, cucumber, jalapeno, cilantro, and thai hot sauce wrapped with avocado and wasabi mayo. Portions are generous for the rice, noodles, Thai entrees and apps, along with plenty of vegetarian options.
