A review of Logan Square’s newest regional Italian restaurant, Testaccio featuring regional Italian and Mediterranean dishes. Craft cocktails, small plates, and a charming ambience make this a welcome addition to Logan Square’s burgeoning restaurant scene.
I finally tried Chicago’s first and only Japanese Okonomiyaki (Japanese pancakes) style restaurant. It is now one of my favorite restaurants in Chicago! I was impressed by everything I ate, it was all so delectable and distinct.
Next features extensive tasting menus with different culinary theme every four months and they accommodate for dietary restrictions. We experienced Mexico City during a hot August night.
I have seen many lists compiled recently on how to support Black-owned restaurants. So instead of recreating a list that has already been made. I wanted to compile these lists together since these lists have unique perspective and features. I also wanted to highlight vegan/veg-friendly black-owned restaurants as well given that I am a vegetarian blogger.
Vegetarian and vegan-friendly Chicago take-out and delivery spots to get you through the quarantine! Check out my list of 20 spots so you can help support small businesses wile distracting yourself from the pandemic!
Restaurant week isn’t always the most vegan/vegetarian friendly, which can be quite frustrating. Plant-based eaters need something to get through the worst part of the winter too! After scouring the menus on the Chicago Restaurant Week website and doing my own research, I have compiled a list of restaurant week menus that are vegan, vegetarian, and pescatarian friendly.
Check out my list of the best new restaurants of Chicago in 2019 through a vegetarian perspective. 2019 has been an incredible year for Chicago’s international food scene. We have an explosion of South Asian spots ranging from progressive Indian at Rooh to street food at Moti Café and Tikka n’ Curry.
Kimchi Pop is that perfect fun, casual, BYOB Korean spot with plentiful gluten-free, vegan and vegetarian options. I was quite impressed with how inclusive they are of us plant-based eaters.
Spanish-Mediterranean restaurant, Papa Cenar, is now serving a Spanish-American brunch in addition to their tapas style dinner! It’s a smaller menu with more traditional American options like French toast while still holding onto their Spanish influence with their Spanish omelet (which I like more than American omelets). Brunch is a laid-back affair at Papa Cenar with Velvet Underground casually playing in the background making it really feel like a Sunday morning.
ROOH is one of my favorite new restaurants that has opened this past year. You can find extremely unique dishes where so much attention is paid to detail with every bite, every ingredient, every texture. Every dish we tried was perfectly composed and insanely delicious – experiences like these are rare so treat yourself and try this spot because you will not be disappointed!
