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!

Address: 2002 S Wentworth Ave, Chicago, IL 60616

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.

Address: 2217 S Wentworth Ave, Chicago, IL 60616

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.

Address: 2157 S China Pl, Chicago, IL 60616

Honey Dessert

Last but not least, dessert! Honey Dessert houses the best shaved ice. You can choose from mango, green tea, milk, (and more) flavored shaved ice and get toppings on them ranging from fresh fruit to boba and jellies.
