I have a few months left in chicago, and my goal is to check out new restaurants or places I have not been too...and of course some of my favorites as well. Last week, I checked out Rick Bayless' new restaurant-'Xoco.' It's the sister restaurant to his 2 other restaurants (Frontera Grill & Topolobampo), all connected in the same building on Clark St. This spot is somewhat of a fast food/inexpensive restaurant, featuring the 'street foods' of mexico. They are known for their bean-to-cup hot chocolates, and their amazing homemade churros!
Ahogada-golden pork carnitas, black beans, tomato broth, spicy arbol chile sauce, pickled onions at xoco
home made churros at xoco-shared one with a friend...but next time, i
barcelona chocolate with homemade dulce de leche-a bit too sweet for me, but it was great!
Over the weekend, stopped by Saboo-Korean bar that has pretty good Korean food! Known for their 'tong-dak' or Korean style fried chicken...although we didn't get it this time.
i must admit, their dukbokki (spicy korean rice cakes) was better than mine!
kimchi tofu-my favorite at saboo! i actually prefer this over the fried chicken (sorry for the blurry photo!)
sunhee and me...satisfied after a nice meal at saboo!
