What I love most about this area is the diversity of ethnic groups - SouthEast Asians, Filipinos, Chinese, Vietnamese and a whole lot of people who look just like Colleen.
Peter, the owner, used to be the head baker for the Hotel Sofitel Chicago which explains his passion for French pastry. For now, I’ll blame my buttery reality on Colleen because I’m sitting at the counter devouring one of the best croissants I’ve ever had. Lucky for my waistline I don’t live right around the corner like she does.
On my return trip I’ll check out some of the traditional Asian fare because that looked exceptionally good as well.
And you thought you couldn’t get anything for a dollar any more…
It’s connected to a convenience store and in a strip mall so the location is not idyllic but every cab driver in the city knows where they can get cooking to write home about.
