Crispy Curry Croquettes


Duck Fat Fried Chicken


Tonkotsu Noodles: Egg noodle, silky pork broth, braised pork shoulder.

Chef Takashi Yagihashi opened Slurping Turtle last year and I finally visited a couple times in the last couple months. I especially enjoyed the Japanese curry croquettes and the grilled items (not shown). The soups are pretty good. Dallas hasn’t actually been to the restaurant but I brought him home soup once and he didn’t love the broth. Need to get him in the actual restaurant.

Excited for Takashi Yagihashi‘s newest restaurant, Slurping Turtle, to open just around the corner from my office on Hubbard! I’ve been to his fast food place, Noodles by Takashi, many times and last year Dallas and I celebrated our anniversary at his high end joint, Takashi.

Noodles by Takashi Yagihashi

It’s so much easier to zip downtown on the Blue Line at the new condo in Logan Square. When we were in Roscoe Village it took about an hour to get downtown, and now? 20 minutes about. One weekend in January Dallas and I went down to Macy’s so we could look at suits. Dallas had been reading a lot of mens magazines when he was travelling a lot and wanted to get a lighter gray suit. We ended up finding a great Michael Kors suit that was also a great sale price. Dallas got fitted for the suit and while it was getting tailored we went to grab some lunch.

Macy’s has a fancy food court. I went to Rick BaylessFrontera Fresco a couple years ago, but we have never tried Marcus Samuelsson‘s Marc Burger or Takashi Yagihashi’s Noodles by Takashi Yagihashi. We chose the noodles.

Over at Chicagoist, Anthony recently posted a review of Noodles by Takashi Yagihashi. Dallas and I both weighed in on our opinions of the place. Basically the food was good, but expensive. Dallas got a soup and I got fried rice. We also tried a shrimp wonton appetizer. We were excited to see “pork buns” on the menu because we thought we’d be getting a small char siu bao, but the buns actually were like whole sandwiches. It was too much food, which also added to the reason that it was more than we expected to spend. I’d go back and just order less. I enjoyed the food.
