Al's #1 Italian BeefSandwiches • Chicago, United States
Add hot & sweet peppers and got it dipped!
The Special Al Pastor burrito (from the special menu, with pineapple salsa) is very juicy and balanced (every bite has everything!). Good selection in the open salsa bar.
The Nachos (with marinated pork) are a positive surprise. They had a good amount and a good balance of quality guacamole, salsa and other goodies. The pork is served "Shawarma style".
Salted caramel shake with bailey's is pretty good. It will fill you up though.
They don't know the difference between "well done" & "medium rare"
Saag Paneer - nice consistency and very flavorful cheese and spinach. Yum
Nalli Vindaloo - Tender lamb shank and very good curry sauce. The dish is big, and not as spicy as they claim it to be.
Herring Sandwich With Onion: Great fish & very thin onion slices. Simple & tasty (even for an onion "troublemaker" like me.
Try the Cheese Fondue - One of the few places in the country that serves fondue.
Try the clementine - Clementine mille-feuille,clementine mousse,and clementine ice cream.The BEST ice cream I've ever had.
Try the Venison Medallions - w/ wild mushrooms and pumpkin gnocchi.I adore venison (deer)! Excellent dish. Very good & tender meat.
Check beforehand which day is Yoav's turn to handle food - and don't miss lunch on that day!
Try the Seared Butterfish Nigiri - Served w/ fantastic sauce.Excellent sushi!
