Food recommendations for a solo foodie in Chicago

Thanks for the great suggestions. I will definitely love to try barbecue. For barbecues, what is commonly ordered?

Thank you for your advice. I will probably stick to Portillos then.

I'm from Singapore and generally we have a pretty good range of food. Definitely no asian for me. I think something American and Mexican would be great!

Seoul BBQ Recs?

I tried 2 bbq places in seoul after much research, budunamujip and buying from the majang meat market directly and bbqing my meat purchase in a restaurant. The majang meat market prices were fantastic for 1+++ quality Korean beef. It definitely can compete with the Kobe beef I had in Kobe.

It is about 10-15 minutes walk from the subway.

Thanks for the advise. What about Chipotle's for dinner? I realised there is one nearby. I've a secret love for Mexican. :)

Oh well, not so secret anymore I guess.

Hey there

Thanks for the tips! I've read up about Chicago and it seems like the hot dogs and deep dish pizzas are the must eats. I'm pretty adventurous when it comes to food. What else should I try in Chicago?

Cheers

Thanks for the recommendations. I am considering the following for dinner: Portillo's, Lou Malnati's, Pastoral, Purple Pig and David Burke for dinner.

Are Pizzeria Uno and Pizzeria Due better than Lou's?

Sushi in Singapore

What about Aoki at Shaw? They have a smashing bara chirashi too. You have to book in advance for that.

Hey everyone

This is my first trip ever to USA and I'm pumped. I will be going for a conference that will be held in Hyatt Regency Chicago. I will have to settle dinners myself and am quite concerned about safety because I'm petite and Asian. Yet, I do not want to eat crappy food. This foodie will probably have some guts to walk a short distance for food. I would love some food recommendations and safety tips! Is it safe around Hyatt?

Thanks ya all!

Baking Misadventures III: The Search for ScrumPtuOus Canelé caKes

Hi everyone,

I'm so glad to find a thread on canele. I've tried 1 about a month ago and I'm hooked. Sadly, I can't find any bakery that sells caneles in Singapore. So I'm going to start on my baking quest for caneles. i've read through the 3 caneles threads and I'm at a loss as to which recipe I should try. Hoping I'll get some advice from you all. :)

Food sharing

i've way too many restaurants i wanna try out.... thats why i'm hoping i could share... hehe trying to make full use of my 5 days there.

Food sharing

my concern is stomach space (I'm a small eater) and time. I'm hoping to stop at more places throughout the day.

Food sharing

I'm going to Tokyo in Dec with my mom and I'm wondering whats the food policy like in Japan. Are we allowed to order 1 set meal and share it. Or must we order 2 sets? I'm really hoping they allow sharing, so I can try as many restaurants as possible :)

Tofuya Ukai

Hi everyone, I will be going to Japan in Dec and I'm drooling at all the description of food in Exilekiss's and Paul's blog + other various blogs. I really hope to go to tofuya ukai and from the blogs I've read it seems that i would have to make reservations way in advance but the problem is there is no email address on the tofuya ukai website. Is it really that necessary to make reservations for lunch? How did you all make reservations for the restaurant? Thanks in advance.
