Friends and families visiting KC Sushi find a cure for the landlocked blues in the restaurant’s sushi rolls, teriyaki dishes, and other specialties from the island nation of Japan. While waiting for their meals to arrive, diners can feast their eyes on the back wall’s mural of snow-capped mountains, or investigate the sushi bar, where chefs do one-finger pushups before they roll sushi with their dexterous digits. With the recent addition of larger tables, small and big groups alike can savor artfully designed sushi rolls, spicy crab salads, and steak teriyaki made fresh in-house.

Don't believe you can get delicious sushi in the middle of the country? Let Kokoro Maki House prove you wrong. Known for a spicy tuna roll that is, in fact, spicy, as well as fantastic ramen soup and the best shrimp tempura in the Midwest, Kokoro Maki House is full of surprises. The vibe is relaxed, the interior lacking pretense. Order at the counter and either take out or eat in. We prefer the latter option, especially for the Korean dishes. Yes, Kokoro also specializes in Korean food, and has all the typical favorites on the menu such as bibim bap. Kokoro serves both the sushi and Korean dishes with all the drama and flair they deserve. The bibim bap, for example, comes in a heated stone bowl that crisps the rice and cooks the egg to perfection, a word that can describe most of Kokori Maki House's dishes.
