Carriage House

April 24th, 2015 · No Comments




A while back Jess and I went to Carriage House for brunch. Neither of us had been before and had both wanted to check it out for a while. I thought the place was cute, our waiter was nice and attentive, but I wasn’t in love with what I ordered (chicken and biscuit). I’d go back but maybe get something else.

Dallas had been to Oiistar, but I only recently got to visit for lunch. I loved the tempura tiger shrimp bun. For my soup, I got the classic ramen. Oiistar has some interesting variations on ramen, but I thought I should start at the beginning. I thought the ramen was really good. 

 Funny, Dallas and I were just talking about our “ramen bar”. I guess our bar was set high in Japan, and I wouldn’t say this was as good as there… but we have a new American bar and this was not at the top, but still very good. Also, nothing in America has come anywhere near to the high bar set for tempura in Japan! 

I appreciated the soft boiled egg in my ramen. Something I don’t think happens often here.. and I also thought the Oiistar space was cute, though I could understand how it gets crazy at night. At lunch it was totally chill.

Went to Kokopelli several weeks ago with Jess to check it out. I’d heard people raving about it, but I was not that impressed. Maybe we ordered wrong.. we got one order of trout and one order of octopus tacos and split them. I mean, they were good, but I wasn’t raving to all my friends the next day. Also, I thought the drinks were expensive and small. I would go back and order differently, I think. .. but then again, there are SO MANY taco spots in Wicker Park and Logan Square…
