Summary: Aloha Eats is a “Hawaiian grill” that serves traditional plate lunches, noodle dishes, and other island treats. We stumbled upon this location while walking through the Lincoln Park area and we decided pretty early to squeeze this local spot into our food crawl itinerary for the day. I was so happy to see all the familiar dishes such as spam musubi and saimin on the menu. They also carried Aloha brand canned fruit juices like lilikoi-orange and the ever favorite POG (passion-orange-guava). We ordered a plate lunch to share and sat in the relatively small dining area. The chicken portion was so generous, we realized we should have probably ordered the mini version. Regardless, we tackled our early lunch meal and left with fat bellies and smiles on our faces. It was so great to be able to have a taste of “aloha” and reminders of home. If I lived in Chicago, this would be a regular lunch spot for me.

What I ate:

Chicken Katsu Plate Lunch
Boneless and skinless chicken filet breaded with premium Japanese bread crumbs, fried, and chopped into smaller pieces. Served with our home-made sweet and tangy Katsu Sauce, with two scoops of white rice, and one scoop macaroni salad
