    I wouldn't bank on the buffet being available at 6pm. I'm fairly certain it's lunch only. Just a heads up

    I did check and they have a down time between lunch and dinner.

    I will double check.

    Thanks!

    Turns out the buffet is only available for lunch.

    We pulled up stakes and are moving onto...

    Although it seems soon after my last visit, that one was late. :)

    Heading back up tomorrow. First stop (no surprise)...

    Macushla Brewing Co.
    1516 E Lake Ave, Glenview

    4:45 pm on Tuesday, August 6th

    With all of the great Korean up there it is about time to visit. We had a lot of Asian before and had excluded it from recent visits.

    After beer we will segue over to...

    Paik's Noodles
    1615 Milwaukee Ave, Glenview

    ... at around 6:00 pm

    Not the fanciest nor the most intimate but there were a few dishes that tickled my fancy and I have been craving.

    Only a few more months left. I will miss my visits.

    Hope to see you there. :)

    Sorry for the late notice! Starting in 1 hour...

    My final growler fill.

    Monthly Tuesday (9-3) visit with Linda to Glenview

    Of course it will start with a visit to...

    At 4:45 pm...
    Macushla Brewing Co.
    1516 E Lake Ave, Glenview

    ... for a couple of beers, a few appetizers, a growler fill and then we will saunter over to (maybe around 6) ...

    San Soo Kab San
    7901 Golf Rd, Morton Grove

    We have been long time fans of this small restaurant empire with visits first to their Chicago location then me discovering this one.

    Imagine food on the charcoal grill, sweet smoke wafting, mixing with the Korean beer, soju...

    Several seafood options and the plentiful banchan making it a memorable visit.

    When I visited it was an awesome trip.

    It ‘twas a great visit! Besides the strong beer at the taproom we decided to share some Korean beer and soju.

    As if the first two visits wasn’t enough, since this was our last scheduled trip I wanted to have My Bride experience my favorite neighborhood bar along this route.

    Okocim
    6801 W Addison St, Chicago

    Polish by nature but Greek by ownership. You can see the Greek influence only on the menu...

    C6C51777-35E3-4D4B-A9E9-4EE109DEDAC5.jpeg

    ... with the Souvlaki being very popular amongst the Polish patrons.

    Since I had been denied their pierogis on my last few visits (only after 6:30) I had a strong desire for My Bride to give them a try.

    2EDB5F43-ECCC-4FD3-984D-F306F623C960.jpeg

    Was able to pump the barmaid for pierogi information and found out that they are from...

    Alexandra's Pierogi
    3300 N Central Ave, Chicago

    Which is a good choice! Also the supplier of Dan’s Pierogis the most popular stand at the Whiting Pierogi Fest.

    As our evening was winding down, a local gent, Marty, came in and bought the bar a round! He was there on my first visit and he brought a round then too.

    When that beer was almost done the Polish gents at the other end of the bar bought a round of shots of Polish liqueur.

    Quite a night! :)

    Just hit Paik's Noodles up for the first time, and what I had, I LOVED.
    I went with the Spicy JJamppong with pork and squid, and an order of the Hong Kong Wings. Also tried the fried pork dumplings, which I was less enthusiastic about, but the soup noodles and wings were freekin' great.
    The soup's broth was an intense red, however, it wasn't too spicy, just a touch above richly warm with spice, but not anywhere near "hot." Nice flavor to it. I really liked it. I think I slurped about 20 spoons of straight broth before even trying anything else, because I liked it so much. The slivers of pork were kinda scarce, but I had a good 5 mussels (in the shell,) and a handful of squid bits too. Very fond of this soup they have here. VERY fond.

    The wings - I just thought they were fantastic. Decently spicy, not too sweet. Piping hot, and ultra crispy. Their other wing option was soy/garlic. I'm trying both next time.

    Tablemate 1 ordered the beef/shrimp noodle soup and was much less enthralled with their choice. They noted it kinda bland, but decent.

    Tabelmate 2 ordered the pork/squid stir fried noodle and absolutely loved it. FWIW, he's an Asian fella.

    As an Aside:
    Tous Les Jours Sweet Rice Donut is out of this world. Like a Sesame Ball minus the sesame seeds, and the chewy outer coating has a pancake-ish goodness to it - a step above the regular sesame balls you find in Asian bakeries.

    Best lunch I've had in a LONG time.
    We cannot be friends if you do not know the difference between Mayo and Miracle Whip.
