The second location of Matthias Merges' cool Japanese izakaya is a little chiller than the Logan Square outpost (less energy, less booze), but the food is just as great. The menu changes frequently, but start with a couple of buns, like the crisp fried oyster with kimchi, or the twice-fried chicken with pickled jalapenos. From there, you won't go wrong with any of the ramens—the Logan Poser ramen comes with a hearty fried pig's tail and an egg that release its yolk into the bowl when you slice into it. Merges's desserts, whether soft serve or doughnuts, are pretty simple, but always a solid end to a meal at Yusho.

Great location w/ parking available. I love the idea of being able to see your chef cooking your food. The 2x fried chicken bun was cooked to perfection with a really good spicy sauce to top it off. This American Japanese dining option also has really great noodles. With a combination of chicken, cabbage, basil, spice, pickled onion, I couldn't have been happier to have ordered this noodle dish.
