Thee Asian RestaurantWicker Park
In the little North Avenue strip mall that also houses Cellar Rat, you'll find this below-street spot dabbling in noodle dishes, smoothies and other pan-Asian fare. Start with the lemongrass chicken wings or vegetable egg rolls, then move along to Korean spicy tofu and beef soup or tom yum. Other house specialties include noodle dishes such as shrimp lo mein, pad kee mao and Korean chopchi noodles. But the real focus here is favorites like mango chicken fried rice, basil pork with fried egg and Thai green curry shrimp. House-made desserts and a host of specialty drinks from the bar are also available.
