I've been to J.Y. a couple of times. I really haven't been that impressed. Please advise... What's good, here?
[FWIW, I've ordered Korean Noodle Soup with Shrimp and Oysters, as well as Vietnamese Grilled Beef and Rice Noodle Salad.]
Pineapple-Coconut Green Tapioca Freeze.
For me it's really about the drinks, the rest of the food is good not great and a pretty good value. I have enjoyed their eel-but that actually is not a good value, Kalbi is also decent and garlicky, "butter-fried squid" is a very tasty mouthful, and I know this not houndish -but I do like their pot stickers.
Is their better food in that little mall-definitely, a better drink?--i don't think so. Also when they do open in Evanston (which I have been waiting on) it will be by far the best chinese/vietnamese I can get without traveling some distance.
re: Erik M.
I love their broiled eel and sesame noodles.
I also think their pho is some of the best and
richest in the city.
Kalbi has been mixed.
Chinese broccoli can be very undercooked and
fruit/tapioca drinks sometimes too sweet.
And totally avoid the durian shake.
I hope the new Evanston one is better than the
old Evanston one.
