Resident Foodies say: We just had this amazing duck ramen special, with broccolini, tofu, and poached egg at Slurping Turtle. So good!
Resident Foodies say: We went for dim sum this weekend at Minghin Cuisine near Randolph next to Millennium Park. The dim sum doesn’t come on carts (you have to order it), but the food makes up for the loss of fun in not being able to pick and choose from carts. The space is nicely decorated (better than what you’d find in Chinatown) and has plenty of natural light from the windows to make the experience even more enjoyable. Minghin is a really solid choice for dim sum in Chicago.
Resident Foodies say: We’re super big fans of Stan’s Donuts, which Stan Berman originated in LA in 1963 and has now come to Chicago compliments of business partner Rich Labriola in 3 locations (Wicker Park, Streeterville, and Lakeview). Featured above is the gluten-less pistachio donut, which is also pictured below with the yummy lemon pistachio donut–our absolute favorite! If you like donuts, Stan is the man!
Resident Foodies say: One of our all-time favorite dishes, the organic chicken claypot at Slanted Door in San Fran. It’s actually very easy to make, using the cookbook of Chef Charles Phan. So tasty!
Resident Foodies say: Little Goat is a super-fun upscale diner in Chicago by chef Stephanie Izard. We tried out the Korean burger, which was as good as it looks. It has kimchi, bacon, egg, spicy mayo on a squish squash roll. Yum yum.
