Why locals love it

I'd like to say Im among the priveldeged who can vouch for the authenticity of this restaurant. Many of their vegetables are shipped weekly from Southeast Asia and when served I feel like I am back home! This adorable family owned establishment has itself competing with bigger Amer-Asian fusion restaurants around Chicago.

Why you should visit it

They have the "small spoon taste". Get it? I will leave it at that, can't describe it past there unless you just know. Worth mentioning is the courteous staff, Mike for example, knows how to assist you in pairing up your meal with Sambal, Coconut rice, and Peanut bases. Also They are probably the only place in America serving Luwak Tea

Special tip

Order Tea to start, then Mud Coffee at the end. Musts: KangKung (Grrr Foaming at Mouth!) then Pork Belly with Coconut Rice. Thats it curl in bed NOW
