Urbanbelly is about the communal dining experience. Meet new people. Eat great food. Feed your belly from the heart.
Free Kirin Ichiban on draft for dads on Father's Day! Awesome.
Mushroom pho on point
Wonderful ramen and dumplings. I had the self titled and the duck. Very accommodating staff.
Best ramen in the city. The right amount of spice combined with pork belly.
Cocktails, small plates, crazy Korean fusion BBQ. Awesome place
Pork and cilantro dumplings are good, but the noodle/ramen special was killer. Exceptional service.
Great patio. Try the phat rice.
Warm your belly with a delicious bowl of noodles, dumplings, or phat rice but save room for desert! Love their donuts and PB&J!
Ramen and/or Kimchi broth.
You can always find Pan-Asian food interesting! Love the urban belly ramen the most! Mixed flavor of Korea, Japan and Thailand! Duck and pho dumplings are a bit oily tho!
Pretty much everything but I love the ramen and their take on Pad Thai.
Save room for donuts.
Loved it. Quality food, personable staff. They even have gluten free options!!
Open kitchen means you can hear the staff saying Fuck that shit....and what a fuckin' asshole. Great lunch conversation! Poor management is usually to blame.
Pass on the mushroom pho. The broth tastes too much like hoisin sauce which is usually served on the side for dipping. Pea shoot fried rice though is a solid choice.
Buffalo chicken dumplings are AMAZING!
Waygu dumplings are to die for...
The belly ramen, the shrimp udon, mushroom pho, the dumplings, it's all delicious. Get dessert, the pb&j Fro Yo and the mini donuts, can't go wrong.
If you like Chinese 5 spice you'll love this place everything has it in it. Ugh.
Great pork belly ramen
Get the Urban Belly Ramen and Phat Rice! For the sweet tooth, get the PB & J!
Get the donuts and PB&J soft serve ... Out of this world!
Awesome ramen with pork belly, and the specials are so good! BYOB - the Beer Temple up at Belmont and California is a good bet for tasty brews to go along with your pho or dumplings.
Employees are nice, the space is small, only 4 tables, but nice. My main problem with them is that they can't make any of their dishes without onions. Rice dishes were subpar.
Try the specials. Tonight's was rice noodle w corn, shrimp, pork sausage in a green curry broth. Outstanding
Urban Belly Ramen: Bill Kim instead uses a phở-like base here, which brings in all kinds of other spices and aromas. This may not please the traditionalists, but works in every other capacity.
Kristina Caruso says: "Get the rice cakes - #15 on the menu. Also, the pork and rice and the lamb and burgundy dumpling."
They do no substitutions
A bit pricey for what I got. Urban ramen came w 4 strips of pork belly and a few shiitake mushrooms for $13. Noodles and soup aren't that expensive
get the urbanbelly ramen!
One of the best pork pho broths around
Food is soulful and delicious. But the staff is rude and unfriendly. Not the best combination. If you don't like your job (lady with the short hair) maybe you shouldn't work in the food industry. .
Bring bib! The dumplings are good.
Always want to try something new, but I can't stop getting the Katsu in curry with pineapple and rice noodles. Chewy rice orbs, spicy broth, sweetness from pineapple. So damn good. BYOB too!
Beware of delicious squirting dumplings!
Duck and pho-spiced dumplings are a must try.
Soba noodles and phat rice!
#14: perfect for clogged sinuses!
The food is made up of cheap, Asian basics like dumplings and ramen noodles. But the dumplings are filled with lamb and brandy and the ramen tossed with braised pork belly and king oyster mushrooms.
One of the reasons Chicago loves Bill Kim. Creative Asian soul food in a communal setting. Pull up a wooden block and go hypnotic over the luscious dumplings, rice, and noodle dishes. - Inspector
