Asian Outpost Featured As Chicago Magazine's 10 Hottest Restaurants in February

Despite opening during our polar vortex winter, Asian Outpost (1315 S. Wabash) has been getting some solid reviews and love from the media and readers.

You may recall a very positive review from one of our readers we posted back in early January.  

ASIAN OUTPOST When the owner’s Grandma Lee made her “famous steak,” everyone showed up for dinner. And the beat goes on. 1315 S. Wabash Ave., 312-662-1100

We actually recently went for the first time and totally understand what all the fuss is about.  The menu isn't gigantic, but everything sounded delicious.  We opted to go the chicken rout for this experience and our favorites included "Mom's Ginger Garlic Fried Chicken" and "Garden Vegetable Wok Seared Jasmine Rice with Edamame and Chicken".  Both were unique and delicious.

The also have some exotic sushi rolls that we hope to try next time.

In regard to ambiance, it was surprising.  The space was much bigger than we thought from peaking in from the outside, yet it was warm and cozy and truly felt like you were eating at someones house (in a good way).

Finally, we had a chance to meet Lois Lee, the owner, who was extremely friendly and down to earth.

We will be back - very soon!
