Handlebar, Chicago

The last time I was in Chicago, we ate at Handlebar and had a great experience so we headed back there this time.  When we arrived, our friend hadn’t yet arrived and they won’t seat incomplete parties so we had to wait a bit until she arrived. This bicycle bar is very popular so expect a wait if you are going for dinner.

I ordered the wasabi tofu that was topped with green beans and edamame over rice. I loved the flavors that the wasabi sauce imparted on the tofu and thoroughly enjoyed the dish. Zach ordered the buffalo chicken wrap, which was soooo delicious. We had this the last time so it is consistently good.

For dessert, we ordered the chocolate raspberry bar, which I found to be quite dry. I wouldn’t say that desserts are their specialty. Maybe a scoop of soy ice cream would have made it better.

We stayed for a while and had drinks as well. Their alcoholic drinks are pretty good. This is a great place to go for good food with good friends. It is a bar-like atmosphere, but is very laid back, which makes it a nice hangout joint.
