Two Is Better Than One at 2 Fun Chinese

Thursday, January 12, 2017 Perry

What's better than a new, modern Chinese restaurant opening up in Chicago's West Loop?  A two-story restaurant and bar, featuring karaoke and late night eats!   Austin Baker's latest restaurant is actually a bi-level creation;  Sichuan-inspired restaurant, Won Fun Chinese, on the main floor, and karaoke/cocktail bar, 2 Fun Chinese, upstairs.  

 Since opening in late November, Won Fun has made it's mark on Raldolph St., aka "Restaurant Row".  Like taking a trip to Chinatown itself, sans the trek South of the city, the cuisine is exceptionally authentic, but with a modern twist.  I will caution you though, if your pallet isn't prepped for spice (I'm a total wimp when it comes to spicy food), because almost everything on the menu is also authentically spicy!  Even so, one of my favorite dishes that I tried was the Dan Dan Noodles, rated 2/3 on the level of spiciness.  

Dan Dan Noodles

Yuzu Whiskey Sour

Dry Chili Prawns


General Tso's Chicken Wings

Kung Pao Chicken
Open Says Me

Lychee-Rose Martini

Strawberry Daiquiri

Shaved Matcha Ice

Oolong Island Iced Tea

Posh Spice

Won Fun recently announced that they will now offer full-service lunch beginning at 11:30 a.m., Tuesday through Saturday.  So, now no matter what time of day it is, you can feed your craving for amazing Chinese food.

I can't wait to visit 2 Fun again to enjoy some Dim Sum, and sing my heart out to "Total Eclipse of the Heart" by Bonnie Tyler - that's my karaoke jam.   Good thing their cocktails are so amazing, because I am going to need lots of liquid courage!
