    Sun Wah with the Bride and new neighbors. My 9,784th visit, their first, all were impressed, full and happy. Multi-course duck dinner never gets old, nor does Kelly, Laura and family's hospitality. And, of course, my true love Crispy Pan Fried Chow Fun. #lowslowbbq #countmeafan #nobabycorn

    Though there are a bunch of new(ish) restaurants I want to try ranging from Hermosa to Galit Restaurant the bride and I defaulted to Sun Wah Barbecue Restaurant after running a few errands last night. And, as typical, a meal at Sun Wah made me smile. Friendly greeting/handshake from Mr. Cheng, hug and offhand quip from the lovely Kelly, well-practiced side-eye from Lilly the server as I started to over-order, it feels like home. We were greeted by Baokin, commanding the dining room from his royal perch.

    Crispy chow fun, my one true love, salt baked chicken, steamed tofu with shrimp and Chinese broccoli /oyster sauce. Lilly 's look seemed to work as that is a light order for two far as I'm concerned. :) Perfectly sated, easy on the wallet, delicious.

    Gary- I concur with your observations - specifically one about
    ALL THE NEW places like
    The new Israeli restaurant Gallit in Lincoln Park
    to Pacific Standard Time
    that I truly want to experience -
    yet-
    one can't argue with a place that is:
    A) Welcoming....
    B) Warming
    C) Makes Ya Smile
    D) Consistently "real" Ethnic Cuisine- well executed,
    and most of all-
    offering a variety of that Countries Food History.

    I love the way Kelly and her siblings have
    taken their family business - and continued the legacy.

    (Now- .....if I'd wanted to insert negative comments about Food Safety and Sanitation
    and the general lack of said "Rules" in many Chinese Restaurants (I know a generalization- but have you ever strolled in the rear of most of
    The Chinese Restaurants in The Mall on Archer Avenue? GROSS!)
    I would have inserted them here........
    :P :lol: 8) )

    Count Me a FAN as well!

    Made it to Sun Wah this morning.
    Ordered the Crispy Chow Fun with some difficulty without any vegetables or whatever because that's what the photo posted looked like. Had to find photo and show to server to get what I wanted.
    Anyway, very tasty but a lot of oil and took most of it home with a whole BBQ Duck and BBQ Pork Fried Rice for dinner.
    Was told I could not order pancakes for the Duck!
    We will make pancakes ourselves but can't understand why Sun Wah can not sell me pancakes?
    Cold today, so $3 for tea!
    Off street parking subjects one to Speed Humps, not Speed bumps because the Humps are HUGE!
    How does one drive a low vehicle in this area?
    My XC70 has 8&1/2" of ground clearance, so no problem. Perfect vehicle for these Humps and the Pot Holes that abound.
    $2 for parking after I finally found a Pay station.

    Have I mentioned I love crispy chow fun?

    No pancakes in-house, they only have/use steamed bao buns.

    Must have been early, most of the servers know the off-menu plain crispy chow fun. If you have a problem next time ask for the server Lilly or one of the co-owners, Kelly or Laura.

    Saturday morning about 11 am.
    Have never tried the buns with the Duck!
    Anyway, my son can make the pancakes the traditional way, two at a time separated with Sesame Seed Oil very nicely.
    Chow Fun reheated very nicely in a hot cast iron pan. Both family members liked it.
    Simple dish but so satisfying.
    Duck was superb as always! Try as I might, I just cannot duplicate Sun Wah Duck!
    BBQ Pork Fried Rice, excellent.
    Well worth the trip.
    It’s about an hour 30min because I take Hwy 41 to avoid the construction on the Eden’s Spur.
    I now have Park Chicago on my iPhone.
    Feature I want is to activate Park Chicago and from GPS, it should know where and for how long you Park and auto charge you!
