IYH I will be in Chicago next week, staying in Rogers Park, but not much time to sample things. I will probably have time for one dinner out. Where should I go? 1) Ken's, 2) Manghal, 3) Ten Li Chow, 4) somewhere else? Shallots is more than I want to spend. How do these other places compare to their equivalents in NYC? Manghal v Olympic Pita, for instance?
How about lunches? Is there anywhere that does a genuine-enough Chicago-style pizza worth trying? How about MetroKlub downtown? Is that worth going out of my way for, or is it just for those who have to be downtown anyway?
From previous discussions I gather that I should definitely make a trip to Romanian Kosher, if only to get stuff to take home. Is there any product in particular that I should get? Bear in mind that I live in Brooklyn and regularly get Abeles & Hyman, so I'm not completely deprived :-)
