Yes, twice. It's not bad, but it's not good either, nor is it cheap.

In Singapore, the food was not just good on average, but always good, and always at a good price.

I'm afraid Chicago is not the best place to learn. I agree with Foo. Even good American Chinese is hard to find. Our recs for other ethnic, and especially Asian restaurants, were probably more worthwhile. The Pheonix is decent for dim sum. You have better options for evening-time cuisine. Foo, off (the derailed) topic. Just saw your pic in the contest page--the one with the navy jacket. Looks very good.

South Side! Cafe Korea is good. Edit: ... but hardly a dive! It's really nice by Hyde Park standards.

Now we're talking. Do share.
^ We just had this discussion in (now two) threads. Chinese in Chi-town is emphatically... mediocre. Favorite book on food is Liebling's "Between Meals". Where the "Between" came from, I'm not sure. Matt and Vox, I have had trouble finding my way through the fog in Chinese cuisine. The cuisine is so different from ours that it's hard to guess what to have, and servers tend to give terrible recommendations because they either try to pander to Western tastes or just...
