Belly


This afternoon my political friends took me out for an early birthday lunch. Collectively the four of us represent four decades...30's, 40's, 50's and 60's. Of course, that makes me the spastic baby of the crew and I play my part well. I picked the restaurant and suggested my group of lovely wise ladies make the trip to Urban Belly in the city for noodles and dumplings. I have been reading a great deal about this bare bones noodle bar located in a strip mall in Chicago's Avondale neighborhood. With former roots in fine dining, Chef Kim, has been praised for his communal casual establishment and rumors abound his concept is soon to be elevated to multiple locations...think chain...and I wanted to see if the experience lived up to the hype.

The answer...yes it did. I loved my pork belly ramen, squash dumplings with peach sauce, and the wrinkled beans. YUM. Visit this place for a casual lunch as soon as possible...and if you could enjoy your lunch with friends as nice as I did I assure you your meal will be even more delicious.
Thanks ladies. You are the best.
XOXO
