Lan's Cabo is not Jimmy Ma's first restaurant, with two Lan's in Chicago, and locations in Bangkok and Seoulson Tony La is Lan's Cabo manager. What makes it special is Chef Alegundo Sanchez, head chef in Chicago for 27 years. Wow, can he whip up a great meal. Amazing home made egg rolls, sea bass kara yaki, tuna tataki, and sashimi are on the menu and that's just for starters, along with soupsthe hot and sour with Shitake is my favorite. This time around we had spicy Yu Xiang pork with a sweet and sour garlic sauce, Moo Shu chicken with lettuce wrap, crunchy orange chicken with orange sauce and the chef's special "Cooper Shrimp" named after a client.
Other main courses include Peking duck, Hong Kong basil shrimp (excellent!), Japanese Kobe beef as well as Osaka curry chicken, Szechwan spicy beef with vegetables and of course, steamed whole red snapper. An excellent selection of veggie and noodle dishes, too, perfect for vegetarians. And, Pad Thai, my favorite!. Next time, I'll try the "Chef's Table" billed as "The ultimate in culinary ecstasy."
