My sister recently told me about an Asian restaurant that was absolutely fantastic. She told me that I needed to check it out as soon as possible and that I would absolutely love it.
The name of this restaurant is Tasty House #1 in Carol Stream.
We ended up going on a Sunday night. The restaurant was completely packed, which is a good sign of a restaurant that serves good food.
The owner remembered my sister. He was extremely friendly to her and her family and was happy to meet me. I already had a very good feeling about this place. The level of customer service was fantastic.
The main dish that this location is known for is Pho. Pho is a Vietnamese noodle dish with herbs and meats.
I went with the make your own Pho. I added brisket, Vietnamese meatballs, and chicken.
While we waited for our main dishes, we also ordered egg rolls and spring rolls. The eggrolls and spring rolls were super fresh and delicious.
One thing that you definitely need to try when you go here is their hot chilli oil. It is the best hot chilli oil I have ever had. There is a heavy flavor of garlic and the spice is not too spicy.
They are also known for making fresh fruit drinks and Boba teas. My favorite flavor is taro. It is a purple potato/Yam that is sweet and delicious, something you need to try.
The restaurant seemed to be getting busier as we sat and the owner was very busy serving tables, while one of his workers made fresh fruit drinks for the entire little league baseball team that suddenly walked in. All of this chaos and they never missed a beat.
Our main dishes arrive at the table. The Pho came with a side of bean sprouts herbs, such as cilantro and mint amongst other items to add in to your Pho.
The broth was so rich and the noodles were perfectly cooked. I was in heaven.
We all ate until we were completely full. Six people and the bill was under $200 to eat like kings and queens.
I definitely cannot recommend this place enough for you to check out. You will not be sorry. When you stop in please tell them the Chicago Food King sent you.
I give a rating of 9 out of 10. This is definitely a place that you need to check out.
