Coming into town tomorrow for a long weekend. DC hound by way of L.A. I'm bringing my mom for a touristy visit. She pretty much eats Chinese and Vietnamese all the time. She literally will say she can't go 3 meals without rice. From what I've gleaned, there is a Chinatown near the Cermak stop and there are plenty of Vietnamese restaurants in Andersonville. We're staying within the Loop and will be relying on CTA. So I'm aware we may be missing out the best Chinese/Vietnamese spots out in the suburbs. Within the city, if we're only here for 4 days--please help us separate the wheat from the chaff. What are your 2 or 3 recs for either cuisine?
