RESTAURANT WEEK @heritage_chicago 📍 Ukrainian Village, Chicago
We got the restaurant week menu for $55, which comes with 5 courses ! Ben booked it for 9:30pm on @exploretock , super easy to park nearby Biggest highlights were the prime rib pierogi, Korean shortrib aka "galbi" and iron skillet halibut
1️⃣ course: tuna and Hamachi with tempura seaweed. The tempurad seaweed was interesting, adds an earthy taste to balance the freshness of the fish + some sort of aioli. Comes with a hot honey, and green kimchi that was a really great palette cleanser
2️⃣nd course : shaved asparagus salad. You can really taste the egg jam and Hollandaise, really creamy against the vinegary shaved white asparagus. The whitefish roe is my fave. Really want to try their roe/caviar tasting for $150 next time!
3️⃣rd course: prime rib pierogi and duck breast salad. Pierogi was super meaty, filled to the rim of the dumpling casing and fried till crispy. The dough wasnt too heavy and every bite can be paired with their horseradish and sour cream sauce. Duck breast salad had an Asian twist to it. There's cabbage, broccoli, spring onion,. Pickled carrot all in a kimchi vinegrette and maybe a bit of sesame oil? Loved how fresh it was, wish there was a bit more of the smoked duck breast
4️⃣the main : short rib galbi and iron skillet halibut. The galbi had a fantastic bite, and the exact Korean galbi marinade I love. Almost the size of my forearm and a pretty thick cut so I had to chew quite a bit 😂. It comes with this fantastic fried spring onion on top of a bone marrow flan which I didn't particularly enjoy. Overall a great dish.
Halibut was awesome - super crispy skin and "fall off the bone" meat. Comes with pimento grits & a white truffle lobster sauce. If you love seafood & creaminess, you'd love this
5️⃣Dessert: black forest cake and lemon curd tart. The biggest highlight of the dessert was the ice cream 😂. It comes with a salted triple chocolate ice cream for the lemon tart, and a white chocolate ginger ice cream for the black forest cake. Really smooth, creamy , and great depth in flavors. Otherwise the tart and cake was slightly dry
