This Chinatown location is way better than the one on Argyle St. in Uptown. This location is a wonderful spot just off the main drag on Cermark. Chef Jason and his wife have been open for 10 years now, Cooking. Their food speaks for itself. Its simple, it smells good, looks good, is good. Every item I've tried, Good stuff,... More

If you're a fan of Vietnamese food you will be in heaven at Café Hoang! The restaurant is conveniently located in Chinatown and easy to find. A stroll through Chinatown and a peek in the shops is an adventure in itself, so it's what I call a BONUS location! Street parking can be scarce at times but just park in... More

My wife and I live close to Chicago's Chinatown...so there are many Asian restaurants to choose from even in my own Bridgeport neighborhood. One of my favorite places is Cafe Hoang in Chinatown. Eating Vietnamese food in Chinatown seems a little unconventional but oh well. Don't miss the Spring Rolls...and if you like Crab Rangoon...both are great appetizers...The Spring Rolls... More

Despite visiting Chinatown our whole lives, we had never attempted the Vietnamese food there or anywhere in Chicago. We decided it was time and we reviewed an older episode of a local foodie show called Check Please to get some ideas on what to order. If you are not familiar with Vietnamese food, I would recommend going to the restaurant... More

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
Chinatown may be one of Chicago’s smallest neighborhoods geographically, but it's big on character, colors, sights, sounds, and flavors. In this South Side neighborhood, you’ll find authentic Chinese restaurants dotting the length of Wentworth Avenue. After a meal of dim sum, noodles, duck or other tantalizing food specialties, satiate your visual appetite with dozens of public art sculptures sprinkled throughout the neighborhood ranging from animal structures to pagodas, a tile mosaic, Chinatown Gate, and a Buddhist Temple.
