The Best Restaurants in Chinatown
Chinatown is the place to go if you're craving Asian food! There are so many choices, so MODA Blog has narrowed it down to our favorite places in Chinatown.
Qing Xiang Yuan
Qing Xiang Yuan has the best dumplings (after my mom's of course). There are so many different kinds of fillings you can choose from, like chicken, lamb, and beef, along with different vegetables and spices. All their dumplings are hand-made on the spot, and totally worth the wait!

If you're looking for Korean BBQ, try Dae Bak! Newly opened, Dae Bak is an industrial-chic Korean BBQ place offering tender beef and pork. Also, they have a large variety of delicious ban chan to satisfy your appetizer cravings.

Triple Crown is my favorite place to get dim sum! If you're new to dim sum, try their shrimp dumplings, turnip cake, BBQ pork buns, shu mai, and shrimp and chive dumplings.

Sze Chuan Cuisine
If you're a lover of spicy foods, I highly recommend Sze Chuan Cuisine. The service is fast, and the portions are huge. Try their Xinjiang Style Lamb, Chongqing Popcorn Chicken, and Sauteed String Beans.

Dolo Restaurant is delicious! You can not only order Chinese cuisine, you can also get dim sum from 9am-4pm. Order their Salt and Pepper Fish, French-style Beef, and Braised E-Fu noodles.
Address: 2222 S Archer Ave, Chicago, IL 60616
Saint's Alp Teahouse
Saint's Alp has the best boba in Chinatown. Don't talk to me about Joy Yee; Saint's Alp has that authentic boba milk tea. I'm a big fan of their regular black milk tea, the taro milk tea, and the passionfruit black tea! If you're going for their food, they make a mean braised beef noodle soup. They're also open super late, so they're perfect for some late night (drunk?) food.
