So these past two posts haven’t really been about food wars in Ann Arbor, but since we are on the topic of food, I figured I would just share some from this recent trip of mine. Basically a food overload if you want to look at it that way. So come with me on this day of food adventure!

After 4 hours of car ride, we arrived at Chinatown where we stopped at Sweet Station to get some warm brunch. I discovered this small cozy store when a friend of mine too me there last year. I really like the porridge. This time I also got authentic almond milk. It is not the type that you would fine in the typical American grocery store. The Chinese almond milk tend to have more bean taste and less milk taste, which I prefer.

Of course one of the reasons I love going to Chicago Chinatown is for its baked goods.

Egg Tarts!

While downtown, I finally stopped by Garrett popcorn shop to grab some crunchy treat. I never knew how popular this shop was in Chicago until I saw the lines out the door all the way around the corner of the street. I guess people really do go great length to get a savory satisfaction.

Then toward the end of the day, we stopped by Joy Yee’s for dinner.

Of course, bubble tea!

Thai-style Duck Spring Rolls

Duck Noodle Soup

I have to say, getting Chinese food in Chicago is a lot cheaper than in Ann Arbor. There are in general more choices in different style of dishes.
