Vora Chicago

VORA
simple. healthy. delicious

Vora Chicago hosted their grand opening party on Friday, November 15th with a tasting from sushi to Taiwanese Dim Sum. Located in the trendy Gold Coast, Vora is at 1028 N Clark Street. The atmosphere of the restaurant is hip and trendy but very inviting. You can sit in the main dining room or below at the sushi bar.

We started off with sake and some tasty ahi poke tuna with avocado, and pickled onion served on lotus root chips with mango salsa. This was paired with oyster shooters below, complete with a quail egg and chili sauce.

Lets talk sushi. The sushi was spicy and fresh, and the grand opening party featuring the lobster dynamite rolls. This roll had lobster salad, cucumber topped with scallops, spicy mayo, and unagi sauce. There was also a veggie roll,  the Vora veggie maki. This roll included asparagus, cucumber, and daikon sprouts

The full platter below was complete with Taiwanese Dim Sum. Xia Long Bao with pork, veggie Sui Mai, and a crispy shrimp roll. 

This meal could not be complete without a full list of sake to wash it all down with. 

Simple, check. Healthy, check. Delicious check. Vora is a great addition to the neighborhood.
