Best Chinese Restaurants
Dining at some of Chicago's best Chinese restaurants in Chinatown and Uptown, we tried several specialty dishes. Here are our Chinese Restaurant Reviews:

Evergreen Restaurant- This authentic Chinatown restaurant seems to be always packed with locals who have been dining there for years. At this first stop, we tried the Peking duck and approved it with five gold stars. While waiting for the other Chinese dishes, we could overhear the locals talking about how they have been coming here for years, which must be a good thing.

Evergreen's Menu- Also worth a try is the Sizzling Peking Shrimps that come on a sizzling plate with a spicy sauce and the Triple Delight which is a combination of beef, chicken, and shrimp stir fried with mushrooms.

Furama Restaurant- Furama Chinese restaurant features inexpensive but excellent dim sum. Parking is not an issue as a free parking lot is located next to the restaurant.

Furama's Menu- We ordered Braised Duck with seafood vegetables as well as the Cantonese Roast Duck. If you're in the mood for a crispy delicacy, we recommend the Roast Duck. ...read more about Chicago Chinese Restaurants »
