“Gorilla Sushi Bar”: A Cozy Atmosphere

Dragon roll with sweet peas on the side and wasabi sauce.

By Monserrat Munoz ’21

Gorilla Sushi Bar is an amazing restaurant located in Logan Square. This restaurant has delicious dishes, gorgeous decoration, and respectful waiters.

Their fresh sweet peas and mouth-watering appetizers offer a nice welcoming to the restaurant. The staff is very attentive and polite. This restaurant has beautiful and amazing decorations. Our server was very attentive all night long with her explanations of how sushi is cooked. Their tight space makes the restaurant very cozy and easier to bond with your friends. This Japanese restaurant has amazing and affordable prices starting with sushi at only $2.95 each.

Their savory Miso soup is a great way to start your visit there.  It is a fresh and warm soup that has tofu in it. There are endless options of sushi’s starting from my personal favorite, the Dragon roll. It has a thick layer of fresh salmon in the inside and it is topped with a thin layer of avocado and a sweet and tangy sauce that makes the sushi very appetizing. Their green warm sweet peas are served with a pinch of salt that makes you want to have seconds.

Gorilla Sushi has beautiful decorations that makes it more cultural based. Over the tables, there are Japanese umbrellas with amazing floral prints that make the place stand out more. Their transparent entrance makes the place look elegant and bright. Towards the middle of the restaurant, there is a sushi bar where the sushi is prepared.

They also have very proper servers that check up on you frequently and make the visit feel comfortable. They are very polite and explain to you what each meal consists of. At the beginning of our visit, I was a  little confused on how to use chopsticks and she had been very helpful and explained to me what the tricks were to using chopsticks.

Although most may like this place because of its sushi, I did. This is a great and affordable place that many people should start to visit.
