Evanston is certainly not lacking in its options for sushi, but when it comes to the best, Todoroki Hibachi & Sushi just can’t be beat. With its variety of fresh fish dishes, from the standout spicy tuna rolls to insane signature rolls, Todoroki, 526 Davis St., is the sushi spot the city deserves.

Although it’s easy to stick to standby classics like avocado and cucumber rolls, there’s something about Todoroki’s crazy sushi concoctions that will make you expand your horizons in terms of raw fish goodness. The Rainbow Roll — an amazing amalgamation of crabmeat, avocado and cucumber topped with yellowtail, salmon, shrimp and tuna — might sound like a mess, but trust me, your taste buds will thank you. And if you tend toward the spice, you can’t miss the Hot Stuff Roll, which includes red-hot additions such as jalapeno and chili sauce.

Prices for meals range around $11 to $40, and may climb depending on what you order, but it is 100 percent worth it. Maybe even indulge in the all-you-can-eat deal and gorge on as many delectable dishes as your heart desires.

Todoroki does offer other traditional Japanese fare, such as chicken teriyaki, tempura and hibachi grill, but when the sushi options are this good, it’s almost a sin to look past them. So don’t worry and remember that yes, you do have the willpower to jam one more Volcano Roll into your mouth.
