Great quality food (but very expensive as well)~ The roast pork here is a must try (and don’t forget to dip in the sugar)

Chicago Eats: Crazy Pot 味道餐館

Hot pot is great with quality ingredients, the rest of the dishes are too salty and just alright.

We came here for late night snack. Despite the name of the restaurant, there are more savoury food on the menu than the sweet ones. Food was alright and service was ok.

Chicago Eats: Pizano’s Pizza & Pasta

Food was very salty, and the pie was terrible. The crust was dry and flavourless, it was almost like eating thick cardboard. The filling didn’t taste that fresh either. Quite disappointed because the ratings seemed promising.

Chicago Eats: Lou Malnati’s Pizzeria

✣ Top pick ✣

I always thought deep dish pizza = pizza with a very hard and thick crust. I thought I would never like it, but I would still give it a try if I’m ever in Chicago. So in April 2013, I had my very first deep dish pizza at Lou Malnati’s, and I am complete convert to this delicious pie (has to be a quality one though, as later on I had a terrible pie during my trip in Chicago….). The buttercrust is light and crispy, yet it is able to hold all those delicious fillings inside the pie. Great atmosphere and excellent service as well!

Made with Lou’s lean sausage, some extra cheese and vipe-ripened tomato sauce on Buttercrust. It’s authentic Chicago!
