I was near Sheridan and Irving Park this evening and decided to get some take-out from TAC Quick in the post-Andy era. Good restaurants can survive with a chef turnover. And TAC Quick is an excellent restaurant.
I ordered two specials that I had not had previously (I don't know if they were previously on a rotating list of specials): Brisket with Basil and Prik Khing with Crispy Pork Belly. Both were excellent, as fine as any take-out I have had from TAC, and had I not known that Andy had left I would not have guessed. He must have trained his staff well. The Prik Khing, a red Thai curry, had a lot of good heat and the pork was nicely crispy. The brisket was not as spicy hot, but very moist and flavorful.
So far, so good, TAC Quick.
