    Okay -- maybe everyone else knows who you are, but I didn't. Intrigued, I tried to figure it out -- and came up with http://www.go4foodchicago.com/ -- and the phone number and email match.

    The reviews sound good. I'll keep you in mind, next time I'm down your way. Hope you had a good response to the news tip about crab.

    I think this was the result of two threads being merged as the one thread was started yesterday by milochan.

    Sorry, I'm so inept at forums I couldn't even figure out how to post something for the longest time. But anyway, we're running with a new concept dish called TacoBaos and we'd love for you to try it out! Thanks a bunch and hope to see you guys.

    Thanks to Fooda, which arranges for different restaurants to offer pop-up lunches in office buildings around the city, I got to try the TacoBaos for lunch. The chili fusion fish bao was delicious. I still have the beef bao to go. Nice to see Milo and his crew today!

    Turkob and I went out to Go 4 Food for dinner tonight, and we left stuffed, satisfied and already planning our next visit. Milo was there tonight, and he was as friendly as ever. Tonight we ordered a feast - we started with the brand new "bao tacos." Normally I'm not into the whole Asian fusion thing, but they actually tasted all Chinese. A delicious mooshu-like concoction with fatty beef and shredded cabbage inside a freshly steamed bao. It was the only non-seafood dish we ordered, and I'd say it was a hit. Next we had the salted egg yolk shrimp. We ordered it with skin on, so it had a crunch. I enjoyed it a lot, but then i noticed that the table next to ours ordered the salted egg yolk tofu, which also looked amazing. I made a mental note to get the tofu next time. Next we ordered the millionaire rice, an old favorite. It was a more generous portion than we remember, but that's fine with me because then I can have it for another meal. The dried shredded scallops on top is something truly special. Next we got the pea tips. They offer it just stir fried, but of course, I had to get the crab sauce on top, yum. Finally, we had the geoduck in their classic shellfish preparation - jalapenos, scallions, cilantro, and soy sauce. Sooo fresh, sooo chewy. I appreciate the freshness of the seafood, but their sauce really seems to amplify it even more. Looking forward to my next trip. I'm going to invite my boss, hopefully introducing her to this place with earn me some brownie points.

    Been longing for the hot and sour c-food soup. That and a few lobsters are in my near future.

    Figured the best way to break the fast from an excessive buffet last pm would be multiple lobsters for lunch. 1 xo, 1 ginger-scallion, 1 Singapore. All very nice but for my taste the ginger-scallion won out. A lg order of sticky rice, a lime fish fillet dish that was just left of a margarita (not to my liking) and asst mushrooms baked in pumpkin rounded out our meal. The pumpkin was a bit mild but benefitted w/some of the Singapore-xo sludge spooned over it. Great meal.

    I came late to the party on Go 4 Food. Initially, I was not a fan of this restaurant, but over time I've done a complete 360 and now really love the place. I appreciate what they are doing with innovative dishes; especially when it comes to seafood. A recent dinner at GNR Go 4 Food was a collection of greatest hits as well as a couple of new offerings. Although I was a week or so late for $10 lobster, that didn't stop my small but intrepid party from ordering away!

    We started out with Seafood Hot & Sour Soup. A good bowl of Hot & Sour is tough to find these days. Most are overly corn starched or under flavored. The version at Go 4 Food hits the texture and flavor departments spot on. The fact that the seafood version has well...seafood puts it over the top. Sorry to say, I didn't get a picture of the bowl as served due to our exuberant waiter ladling our individual portions before I cold whip out my camera.

    Next up, the always delicious fried silverfish. These were perfectly fried and grease-less. The accompanying diced jalapeños added a nice bit of heat.

    I am a lover of rice, and the Millionaire Style Fried Rice at Go 4 Food is one of may favorite versions anywhere. I can't imagine having a meal at Go 4 Food without including this as part of the order. Although soupier than most other fried rice, the judiciously applied gravy adds a richness that makes the dish special to me.

    We came in craving lobster but, as I said above, the $10 special was no longer being offered. We ordered one anyway. This was ginger & scallion style, but there are several other styles to choose from. Though on the small side, the lobster was delicious!

    As we were tearing into the lobster, our waiter mentioned a new item that they have just begun offering. It's a seafood omelet. It's kind of similar to Korean pajeon, but it's made with eggs rather than a batter. This is another great dish and I hope it stays on the menu as a permanent item.

    To round things out, we had an order of spinach. I guess that makes this a healthy, balanced meal. :wink:

    Go 4 Food is really at the top of their game these days. If you haven't been in a while (or never), you should probably visit soon.

    Hey guys we have some new items just in I wanted to let you know about. We have Golden Crabs for the first time and I think we might be the only place in the city that will have this item and it is very good. We also have live jumbo soft shell crabs, which are absolutely amazing! It's very rare that a place will have it live and we got it right now!! Hope to see you guys some time!!

    Made my first trip to Go 4 Food on Friday for a friend's birthday. There were nine of us including a couple of non-seafood eaters. We managed to sample a good cross-section of the menu and no one went hungry. Our meal included:

    * Egg rolls
    * Pot stickers
    * Spring rolls
    * Hot & sour soup
    * Lemon chicken
    * Crispy Cantonese style chicken
    * French-style beef tenderloin
    * Chili-fusion crab (someone else ordered this, not exactly sure of the preparation)
    * Pork fried rice
    * Baby bok choy
    * String beans with shredded pork
    * Egg tofu with salted egg yolk

    As others have noted, the hot & sour soup here is excellent. Other highlights included the beef tenderloin and the crispy chicken. I thought both vegetable preparations were also quite good. The tofu was interesting and a great way to add different texture, but I would be hard pressed to eat more than a few pieces. All in all, it was a tasty meal.

    Have had a series of excellent lunches here lately. Go to's are steamed giant clams or oysters, Hong Kong noodles (that I saw on someone else's table, asked about, ordered and devoured) and as per norm the hot and sour c-food soup. Bringing a group of chefs here for a blow out in mid Nov. Will report back.

    After a huge (and superb) meal last pm @ Monteverde I didn't think I'd be ready to eat brunch w/my sister and friends today but was wrong and rose to the occasion, as did Go 4 Food. Steamed oysters and scallops, hot and sour soup, salt and pepper soft shell crabs and pumpkin w/mushrooms were all standouts. C-food is their sweet spot. I'm not aware of anyone doing as many selections as well as they do here. A 20 yr old magnum of Moet to wash it down and all is well.
