Chicago Chinatown is located at the South Side, which is not the safest place to explore.
The Chicago Chinatown has over 100 years of history. We find that it is not as buzzing as the Toronto Chinatown that we recently visited.
The Chinatown Gate which is modeled after a wall in Beijing.

Chinatown’s 9 Dragon Wall. The wall is actually decorated with over 500 dragons.
A Chinese style pavilion.
We decided to have a late lunch in Chinatown. We just walked in to one random restaurant.
Since it’s way past lunch hour, the restaurant was not busy.
Ben ordered the House Special Chop Suey which has a variety of vegetables and meat with a savoury sauce. Ben commented that it was not bad.
Nanzaro ordered the House Special Fried Rice. The fried rice was quite nice.
My order of Lamb Pulled Noodle Soup was disappointing as the broth has more salted mustard flavor than lamb flavor. The noodle is also seemed to be machine made and not hand pulled because it’s too uniform.
