We traveled to I Luv Sushi near E State Street and Bell School to sample their menu. From appetizer to dessert, follow our experience!

Before we even dig into the food… we have to give a shout out to Brian, our outstanding server. From beginning to end, Brian added to our experience with amazing recommendations that did not disappoint and made us feel like coming back just to hang out with him again. Thank you, Brian, for the awesome experience!

We started our meal with the gyoza. The pan fried dumplings can be either veggie or beef and are served with an amazing sauce. This is a pretty small appetizer, perfect for a light snack before the main course. Served warm and delicious! (So delicious, in fact, that we devoured them before getting a photo 😂.)

Next up, a variety of nigiri. Nigiri is a type of sushi where the rice is molded by hand and the fish or other topping is pressed by hand atop the rice. We selected the yellow tail and scallop nigiri, and Brian recommended the special that week. Everything was fresh and beautifully presented. Brian’s pick was as stunning as he described, and you can add authentic Japanese wasabi for a slight upcharge.

The rolls came next: Philadelphia roll, Rainbow roll, and Surf & Turf roll. The surf and turf roll was a recommendation of Brian’s, and was truly amazing. The beef was seared to tender perfection and it was filled with shrimp tempura, cream cheese, avocado, and asparagus. This was a fun and delicious roll. The rainbow roll is perfect when you can decide which topping you want. With a little bit of everything, it’s a crowd pleaser showcasing crab meat and avocado inside, and topped with salmon, tuna, white fish, albacore, and avocado. The Philadelphia roll is a classic with smoked salmon, avocado, and cream cheese. There are so many more options at I Luv Sushi, so bring your appetite and taste for adventure.

We ended on a sweet note with strawberry and chocolate mochi. A perfect ending to a wonderful evening.

With a fun and unique atmosphere, outstanding service, and amazing food… you cannot go wrong at I Luv Sushi! See you there, Rockford.
