I love Bro'Kin Yolk's northwest location. Any restaurant that lets me lay in bed while simultaneously waiting in line is A-OK in my books! Their incredible duck fat hash browns don’t hurt either. A super comfy location that is perfect for weekend brunch.

Eats of Asia at the Crossroads Market is great. If you can get your hands on their bao, order as many as you can carry. If you’re feeling exotic, their dan dan noodles are an amazing combination of cool and spicy.

I don’t know how they do it. I presume it’s witchcraft?

Summer, winter, spring, fall... I don’t care what time of year it is, I’m going to Anju! I think my record is ordering the oxtail tortellini three times in one night. You also have to get the gojuchang wings. Why?

1. They’re delicious.

2. It’s a Mealshare item so you can feel good while your gorge yourself.

I think Anju also has some of the best cocktails in the city.

I’m a sucker for "grown-up grape juice" and I’m an even bigger sucker for the gang at Bar Von Der Fels. They’ve always got something good ready to pour and are more than ready to open my world to new wines I would never normally try on my own.
