Northern Chinese food restaurant. Not a fancy place but the dishes we ordered were excellent and the BYOB option and prices couldn't be beaten.
You'll find some Chinese standards but also some lamb dishes and breads that are more unique.
I will definitely will be back with friends to try more dishes.
I have been two this Vietnamese Restaurant twice already and it's quite a find. It's in Lincoln Park but it has some unique dish choices in addition to the classic ones. Sometimes the dishes need some more flavor (like the fisherman's soup we ordered) but for example the tofu eggplant with caramel sauce in clay pot was really tasty.
The fried banana dessert is excellent and being a BYOB makes it a quite cheap option.
I will be back because I want to try some of the other unique dishes I saw in the menu.
For the amount of time we waited, over the 30min, the red snapper in adobo looked good, but it was a bit dry. The shrimp dish and the tostones were good, but like everything else they seemed to need some more salt. My favorite was the Guatemalan tamale. I wanted to try some Guatemalan food and it was a nice experience, but I wouldn't recommend that particular restaurant unless you live in the neighborhood.
We were beckoned by the owner/manager and convinced to come in. The wine list was good and the house Chianti we ordered was pretty good for the price.
The mushroom ravioli pasta was a bit overcooked, but the flavor of the filling was excellent. The linguinni with pesto was pretty tasty too.
After the meal we were offered complemintary drinks at the bar and we spent some time talking about football (soccer) and politics. Just like in Europe.
The pizzas are good thin crust. The pasta was cooked to perfection and our special spicy sauce was really flavorful. The only disappointment was the raw salmon carpacio. The fish tasted a bit off.
The gelatto with the hot chocolate sauce was really good.
