Chicago Eat: Big Bowl

I love Chicago, and always enjoy my trips there - to shop and eat fantastic food. It was another perfect weekend for me, L, and the boys to visit Chicago. Beautiful weather, great hotel deal, Harry Potter Exhibit, and Art Festival. Once we settled down at the hotel, awesome Hyatt Regency, we made a short walk to have dinner at the place requested by the boys: Big Bowl. The casual, pan-Asian restaurant holds their head up high to the concept of "Fresh Chinese and Thai".

Cocktails:
Classic Red Sangria
Thai Herb Mojito hendrick's gin, fresh lemon grass, mint, cilantro, with a pinch of thai chile
Appetizers:
Chinese Chicken Lettuce Wraps an Asian favorite, chicken, bibb lettuce, hoisin sauce
Thai Herb Calamari lightly fried, two fresh lemon dipping sauces, spicy and mild
Sichuan Green Beans wrinkled and sweet, fiery chili sauce
Crab Summer Roll greens, herbs, rice paper, peanut and fresh lemon dipping sauces
Kung Pao Chicken with Noodles: chicken, blackened chilies, roasted peanuts, spinach, with sweet spicy sauce
Thai Hot Pepper Shrimp with Basil and Peanuts: gulf shrimp, fresh chili peppers, chopped peanuts, red onions, hot sauce
Overall, it was another great dining experience. I've been eating at this Big Bowl a few time, and I think the food is pretty delicious, even though it is not quite authentic. Nice atmosphere and friendly service. I would definitely go back anytime.

Big Bowl:
60 East Ohio St.
Chicago, IL 60611
