People tend to check in during these times:
Delicious and healthy Vietnamese food made with high quality ingredients. Enjoy traditional flavors with a modern appeal from banh mi and pho to citrus-cured arctic char and caramel prawns.
The Green Papaya Salad will change your life. And those Caramel Prawns!
Chicken pho is the best on a chilly day. Nice variation on the traditional beef pho. Make sure you grab sambal + hoisin off the counter for your to-go lunch.
Ask Rashed, the professional mixologist, to pair a drink for every course - Heaven!
Mary Nguyen Aregoni and Theresa Nguyen, sisters and owners of the restaurant, grew up in the biz: in Vietnam, their mother owned an open-market grocery that supplied provisions to nearby embassies.
Try the Lamb Luc Lac (via @Foodspotting)
Lots of vegetarian options! Unrelated, the Lamb is amazing.
Try the excellent pork belly rice bowl - nice, lean cut from Holland. Say they can't get lean pork belly in the Midwest.
Healthy portion of beef pho. Could be more generous with toppings: lime, basil, jalapeño, etc.
Try the meatball sandwich
Super fast friendly serivce. The pho and sandwiches are bomb!
The Classic was delicious.
$14 for a cocktail in an office building under the el tracks?
Servers changed. Missed the two boys who were fast and attentive!
Close your eyes, spin, and point at the menu to order. Everything's good, you can't pick the wrong thing.
Ask for their homemade sriracha!
Had vegetable spring rolls, Chinese eggplant bahn bao, roasted pork shoulders, and bread pudding. All was just devine! The bread pudding needed a huge scoop of vanilla ice cream though :)
The speediest lunch service I have ever witnessed in Chicago. Our food arrived in circa one minute.
The Hen House
Try Tofu panacotta!
Delicious lobster spring roll special!!! Great wine selection! Such a lovely, quaint Resturant!
Greatest Vietnamese food in the Chi!!!!!
They only serve a small portion of pho for dinner... And dinner is overpriced. I guess lunch is the only way to go here.
The sun tanned cow is a taste sensation!
The wine selection is amazing and they will even pair the wines with your food. Great, friendly service.
Get the white asparagus soup if it's on the menu. Amazing!!!
Loved the chefs 4 course choice. Excellent service & pairing assistance. Love this place!
The flank steak is wonderful - and try the fish curry, if it's on the menu.
Try the Seared Sea Scallops - Delish! (via @Foodspotting)
Oaxtail Pho was awesome! Quinoa salad a bit salty and special spring rolls (duck) were tasty.
Love banh mi and ban bao's for lunch. Black pepper tofu, caramel prawns, mussels are great dinner choices!
For dinner, liked the banh bao, pork belly with rice and pho. Skip the cocktails- not good enough for $12
Just got a free sandwich for checking in 6 times. Awesome!
Pork belly Banh Mi is mighty good. Next time gotta try the "400 Pound Monkey" beer.
I like the "hen house" sandwich. The sandwiches are not as good compare to Ba-le, but this place is it for the southside
If you're planning on eating here for lunch on a weekday, try to beat the rush in order to snag a table!
The French banh mi with duck and candied kumquats is wonderful!
Vegetarian sandwich is amazing. MUST TRY.
Bánh Mì Crostini
