  • Must try!Loved the curry sweet potato fries even though I generally don't like curry or sweet potatoes :)
  • Great flavors but high amount of sodium in most dishes. Amazing staff though! Had the miso short rib bowl, chorizo egg rolls, and the friendly staff gave us a tasting of the pozole soup for free (!).
  • The sweet potato curry fries are not to be missed. Burnt-orange crinkle-cut fries are topped with crumbled queso fresco cheese and paired with a heavenly curry aioli dipping sauce on the side.
  • Friendly staff, inexpensive QUALITY food. Officially one of my favorite places to eat in chicago. I've tried most of their dishes, and all were amazing!!
  • Pork ramen soup smells so good and tastes amazing. Very flavorful!
  • Chef Amy brought the same amazing flavors that make her Duck n Roll truck successful and then some. The Asian paella is a huge lunch but well worth the food coma it's bound to induce

  • Mojito Lemonade is a superbly refreshing must-have!
  • Try the short ribs over rice, big bold flavor.
  • These chorizo egg rolls were one of our faves!
  • This popular daytime spot recreates the childhood memories of owner Amy Le and chef Rafael Lopez through blended dishes like bao tacos, Asian-style paella, pork carnitas pho and more.
  • Get the sweet potato-curry fries at Saucy Porka. The crinkle-cuts are showered with queso fresco and green onions and served with dunk-worthy curry aioli.
  • Really interesting food, but delicious. Try the chorizo egg rolls.
  • Fast and friendly service. Had the pozole, Asian paella and short rib baco. Not sure if it's just today, but the flavors would've been nice had they not been overpowered by the extreme amount of salt.
