Asian food is good for the heart and soul, and everyone should have a taste of some spicy goodness every once in a while.
Because we know you love the adrenaline of new experiences, we’ve curated a list of the 3 best Asian restaurants in town and what you should definitely eat there. We hope you like them!
Lao Sze Chuan
This Chinese restaurant is one of the best in the city, especially if you’re a fan of tofu. Tofu can be delicious when cooked right, and this is definitely what the chefs at Lao Sze Chuan do. Drop by one of their many locations in Chicago and try their Ma po tofu, a broth of silky tofu in thick, heavenly sauce with pork.

If you’re a fan of ribs, Cai is the spot for you. Satisfy your hunger for beef with this restaurant’s fried short ribs. Some of the other drool-worthy staples at Cai are their amazingly delicious pork buns, their fantastic dim sum, and their super delightful shrimp dumpling.
But don’t take it from us, drop by Cai in Chinatown and try their food for yourself. You can thank us later.
