Fat Rice

New spot to Logan Square, Fat Rice draws Euro-Asian (Chinese and Portuguese) fusion with flavors and culture from Macao. Steve & I have both traveled to Macao and we were very excited to try Fat Rice's menu which offers exotic and lesser known ingredients like calamasi conserva, charred padrón, and parrano that we really enjoy!   Many of the tables are communal, but we sat down at the bar so we could we could watch the food being made in the open kitchen. We spoke with Adrienne Lo, the manager & owner of Fat Rice throughout the night. She is extremely friendly, and very passionate about her Chinese heritage.  She shared several family traditions, stories about her studies in in a top Chinese culinary school, and her adventures through China and Macao. We felt like we were at a hip spot in Shanghai, that's how authentic and delicious the food is.




We started with items from the "pickles"

Middle Center: Smoky Tofu 



Steve ordered a passion fruit dream green tea and it came with powered organic honey. 


Being Polish, I love sausage and the house made sausage, Lincuiça, was killer. 
The lincuiça was served with cilantro, chili cabbage, ginger & olive. 


Pot stickers made of pork, shrimp, Chinese chive, black vinegar are hands down the BEST pot stickers in Chicago. The presentation with the egg film is very unique, you have to break the pot sticker from the film to eat it.


Shaken Chili Whitefish was prepared with Sichuan pepper, shisito, preserved lemon & black beans. 

Coconut Rice
It really compliments the heat from the Shaken chili whitefish. 


We capped off our meal with the serradura, a Portuguese dessert. Adrienne mentioned to us that's it's becoming an extinct dessert.  I don't have a big "sweet tooth" but I wanted to lick the glass clean. It was so forking good! 


The check comes in a tin can with some awesome guava-flavored candy!
