Chowhounder Returning to Chicago after 6+ Year Absence!

kristainlondon | Aug 2, 2010 05:10 AM


After living in London for 6+ years, I'm back in Chicago for the foreseeable future starting this Saturday. I've been back once a year or so for work and have definitely checked out a few of the newer places (Liked Mercadito. Didn't like Sunda.) but am interested in particular in any off-the-beaten-path places that have opened up while I've been away. (Or maybe on-the-beaten path but still small and beloved.)

So for example, I LOVE Korean food and have already seen that there's a chicken place (Crisp) and a Korean taco place (Taco Chino). That's the sort of thing I'm interested in.

When Hot Doug's was on Roscoe, I lived right up the street on Oakley so went there all the time. I was also a regular at Lao Sze Chuan in Chinatown. And Dinkels! Love love love Dinkels.

I hope that gives you all a flavo(u)r for what I'm looking for. Oh, and West Lakeview Liquors used to be my local beverage stop!

Thanks in advance!
