Fat Rice as the No. 4 best new restaurant in the country. The restaurant, owned by Abraham Conlon and Adrienne Lo, serves Macanese-style dishes, a relatively new cuisine in the U.S. The food of Macau is a combination of ingredients and influences from countries like Portugal, China, India and Southeast Asia, offering a completely new kind of fusion cuisine in the hip Logan Square neighborhood.
When you visit ANNA'S, you'll experience the authentic home cooking that Chef Noy and owner Anna Makmok (mother and daughter!) have enjoyed all their lives. Their inventive, expansive and affordable menu features the cuisines of Thailand, Japan, Korea, India, Laos and beyond. Start with something crispy - like Japanese stuffed avocodo or tempura, Thai chicken wings or Indian samosa. Perhaps a Japanese pork kabob or Peking duck bun is more to your liking. Saigon and Bangkok rolls, miso, Tom Yum or Mama Ginger soup plus a salad will round out your first course. For a main dish, try Mongolian steak or chicken, ginger scallops, or Laotian curry noodles. ANNA'S original sushi items are much in demand and include Chef's Signature dishes and nearly 30 varieties of makimono!

Venture to Thailand when you enter this legendary dining area, small and intimate with paintings of and artifacts from Thailand. No a la carte fare here. Instead, dine on sumptuous two and three-course meals. Try the ginger red snapper with lemon grass and miso. Curries are fabulous - flavors and textures galore.
The service is casual but polished.....
