If you’re looking for cheap and convenient sushi after a Cubs game, keep Shiroi Hana in mind. They have an all-you-can-eat $19.95 sushi special that works in your favor as long as you clean your plate. You can get charged extra if you don’t eat what you ordered. I think this approach to sushi is a great way to sample unfamiliar items, and get stuffed if you have favorites.

Having said that, you get what you pay for at Shiroi. The service is ridiculously slow here. They give the rice time to expand, which cuts down on the amount of sushi you can eat in one sitting — bad in an all-you-can-eat situation. Let’s be honest, the point is to hit as much as possible on the menu. Also, I became painfully parched waiting for a refill of tea and water. I don’t mind places for cheap eats, but I do have an issue with the “disappearing waitress” syndrome.

The sushi’s not top-notch here, but you can tell that just looking at the place. No surprises. The edamame is fine, the spicy tuna is fine, the rolls are a little weird (I’m looking at you Hawaiian roll w/pink seaweed) and there are specialty maki are named after comic book characters (Spiderman, Godzilla, et al). Volume, my friend, this place is all about the volume of sushi.

For $20 + drinks and tip, you can expect to roll away full. However, true sushi satisfaction will need to come at a higher price point.
