This is a Japanese soft serve shop in Wicker Park with only two flavors to choose from: matcha and sesame. The soft serve here is perfectly creamy, and both varieties are well balanced. The best thing to do is order the Rakki Royale, a swirl of both that comes with red beans, white mochi, coffee jelly, chestnut, rice puffs, sesame brittle, and a piece of matcha cheesecake. It’s not too sweet, has a lot of different textures, and is something you need to have.

Excellent sushi in an unlikely spot. This tiny restaurant at the bottom of the Hilton hotel on Mies van der Rohe Way street is worth a trip for any real sushi fan.
Momotaro is like a Japanese Discovery Zone. You may need to sample the menu a bit, but hit your stride and it’s a great meal.
