LA YOU JU 2002 S Wentworth Ave, Chicago, IL 60616, in Chinatown, Red Line to Cermak (312) 225-7818
Q-Tips say: The Q’s went to Lao You Ju after a Chinatown Tour. We had Dim Sum (3 to 4 pieces on a small plate). Everything was fresh, tasty and served warm. Service was good. We shared the very tasty BBQ Pork bun (3pc), Black Pepper Short Ribs (for those who might think it was very spicy, it was not), Green Chive Dumpling (3pc), each had a bowl of Won Ton Soup. One of Mrs.Q surprise picks – Cheese Roll w/ Shrimp (4pc). She was apprehensive about the Cheese roll w/Shrimp – but not to worry, a light batter, very little cheese and large pieces of shrimp in the crispy light batter was outstanding.
Mrs. Q says: There are many Chinese restaurants in Chicago and Chinatown but several have the name “Lao” – they are owned by the same person. She was glad they had pictures of the food along with the written description because it helps to get an idea of what you will be eating. Our waitress was super helpful and attentive. The entire meal delicious and reasonably priced at around $15.00 pp with tea. They also offer Chow Fun & Chow Mein lunch specials for $5.95 from 11 AM-4 PM. Go and enjoy. We and our friends did enjoy.
