Chinese restautant in northshore

I am going to Chicago's Northshore suburbs for business soon. Are there any reco for Chinese food? I have been to Szechuan North in Glenview/ Northbrook and Joy Yee's Cafe in Evanston a few times. Are there other places you would recommend? Please advise. Thanks in advance!

  1. "Restaurant"... Sorry for the typo.

    1. Across from Joy Yee's, there's the 527 Cafe (527 Davis Street, Evanston), which has Taiwanese food, very different from the more familiar Cantonese. The food is good and relatively cheap, though the room has zero ambiance, it's all bright colored plastic and shiny surfaces. Not a date night place, but a great lunch spot.

      There's an interesting pan-Asian place in Lake Bluff, called the Noodle Bar, which is an outpost of a small chain of noodle shops in Manhattan, New York City. It's an interesting mash-up of various East and Southeast Asian cuisines in pleasant surroundings.

      1. You're not going to find anything very authentic on the northshore.
        You might try Chinese Dragon in Park Ridge.
