Back in August we talked about the upcoming Global Street food menu at iNG. Well it’s here, and Serious Eats: Chicago got a first look. Judging by their pictures alone, the menu looks pretty impressive. We are especially intrigued by the deconstructed cannoli and churros. The menu is limited time only, so get it while you can.
Falafel at iNG restaurant, via Serious Eats
One of our favorite dining experiences in the US was the Thai menu at Next, which was heavily influenced by the country’s superb street food. We recently learned of the new menu at Homaro Cantu’s restaurant iNG (951 W Fulton Market), which is a mash-up of elevated global street foods. The 8-course menu ($105) includes street food favorites like falafel, Korean BBQ, Tacos, Sno-Cones, and more. You can check out the complete menu on iNG’s website [pdf]. None of the interpretations are literal – check out this deconstructed riff on falafel – with pureed eggplant, Ethiopian Awaze, and a yogurt mint sauce. It’s only open for two months – so check it out soon!
