Spring Break Chicago: Slurping Turtle

I love Takashi in Chicago. Unfortunately, I can't afford to eat at Takashi whenever I'm in Chicago (or I could, but then I'd have to starve during other portions of the trip). Ergo compromise. One of our first food stops during our trip was at Slurping Turtle, which is also one of Takashi Yagihashi's more affordable restaurants. It's not quite the same, but still delish.

Fried brussel sprouts, these were pretty good for brussels sprouts (blargh) but on par with other fried veggies. It's hard to dislike anything fried really.

Duck fat fried chicken ermahgerd, so tasties. They served these at Takashi when I went previously, and they were just as I recalled them in my dreams.

Tonkotsu ramen with pork chashu, bok choy, pickled mustard greens, and braised woodear mushrooms. Noodles were a little different than normal, like more soup noodle-y than ramen-y. Wished there was more protein but I always wish for such things. Would return for another bowl.
