ROKA Akor - Chicago
Roka Akor’s award-winning menu focuses highly on dishes from a robata grill, which takes its name from the Japanese word for “cooking with open flames.” Specialties include yuzu miso-marinated black cod, wild jumbo tiger prawns and glazed pork ribs.
Roka Akor’s contemporary main dining room provides a stunning backdrop and the centrally located robata grill is the heart of the visual experience. The restaurant’s name is derived from two words: RO and KA. The meaning of the first word is hearth, a gathering place where people socialize and take in the ambience; the latter stands for a burning fire and projecting energy.
Roka Akor’s menu features prime cuts of steaks, seafood and vegetables with unique Japanese-inspired marinades and sauces, along with sushi, sashimi and tempura. The menu changes regularly to reflect seasonal offerings.
