20506 Milwaukee Ave
Wakaba located in a little strip mall just down the road from a major Chicago area client. I asked my colleagues about sand several of them mentioned Wakaba. Wakaba is a modern looking restaurant with dark wood decor. When I arived at lunch time, there was not too much of a crowd but there appeared to be several Japanese diners.
The menu at Wakaba looked relatively ordinary, so I ordered the gyoza and a sashimi combination. The meal came with miso soup and a salad with ginger dressing. The gyoza, miso and salad were good, but the sashimi was the star of the show. The white tuna melted in my mouth, it was cold and tasty, I would go back for that alone. The mackeral was also first rate.
As an aside, after I paid my bill I left my iPad at the table and as I was driving off, the waitress ran out to my car to give it to me. Excellent food excellent service.
Wakaba will be a regular lunch stop when I am in the area.
