KASAMA - CHICAGO Is A Modern Filipino Restaurant
In Ukrainian Village, Kasama is a modern Filipino restaurant with an onsite bakery, offering freshly made products you won’t find anywhere else in the city of Chicago.
Ube and Huckleberry Basque Cake and Kouign-amann (described in the New York Times as "the fattiest pastry in all of Europe") are two surprise offerings at Filipino-forward Kasama, but there are also many more familiar Filipino comestibles, like adobo and lumpia.
dobo – a saucy meat simmered in a spicy vinegar broth – is a mainstay of the traditional Filipino diet. At Kasama, there’s the customary chicken adobo, but this version is just the tender wings and pickled papaya, as well as the less conventional mushroom adobo topped with an egg, appropriate for breakfast.
And about breakfast, you can get a traditional Filipino version of the first meal of the day, with garlic fried rice and longanisa (tangy sausage) or tocino (deliciously lush and fatty bacon). We’d recommend you try both.
