Try Young's in Glenview.
Old school Chines (cantonese style) will not be disappointed.

Retro Chinese

1744 Waukegan Road Glenview, IL 60025
(847) 724-7611.

Retro to be sure.
I have been eating here for 50 years (since I was in a high chair!)
Egg rolls to die for.
All the old favorites:
Egg Fu Young (the best anywhere!)
Shrimp in lobster sauce
Chicken Chow Mein
Sweet and Sour Chicken
Beef with Pea Pods

Very consistent.
Take-out recommended, place feels it has not been redecorated in 50 years.

Restaurants that allow game playing

In the north suburbs, I have seen groups of women who come in for lunch and then spend a few hours playing cards and MahJong.
Can anyone report which restaurants they know welcome these activities?

Best Jewish Deli in Chicago?

nsxtasy, thanks for the bump and link in the other thread!

I am so mourning Kaufman's misfortune (and all of ours who are in their proximity.) I never took them for granted. I go by there all the time and see no sign of movement or progress from the outside at least.

No one, I mean no one, made a hot corned beef like Kaufman's.

Although I would love to hear current suggestions for my search.

Thin Pizza Chicago Suburbs North

I am on a search for the best thin pizza in the north suburbs.
We keep trying different places and are disappointed.
I like it very thin and crispy.
I would like to hear your favorites.

Tuna salad afficionado

Celery salt, huh?

i know there is *something* in the tuna salad I like, and I keep trying, but I can not quite place it.
very plain, but one main flavor that is present.

Lulu's green beans - recipe

I love the green beans served at Lulu's and have been trying to recreate at home.
I was hoping someone else would share my passion for them and share a recipe
that approximates their excellence.
They say garlic, ginger and oyster sauce, and I try that but something is not the same.

Tuna salad afficionado

I am always looking for the best tuna salad sandwich, but there are some parameters:
Just tuna and dressing, nothing crunchy or added.
The sandwich is to be on white toast with nothing else on it.
I suppose it reminds me of my childhood.
I am always trying tuna in places and am invariably disappointed.

Any suggestions?
Remember: plain & creamy!
