Chicago Ramen Visit & Artwork

So last weekend was one of my friends birthday and it so happens that he loves ramen. We decided to go to Chicago to spend the day there as well as try some ramen restaurants that we haven't tried before. 

The first ramen place we went to was Jinya Ramen Bar in Chicago

Many hours later after walking around Lincoln Park Zoo, it was nearing dinner time so we headed off to Oiistar in Wicker Park.  

~.~ This place was deeeeeelicious, wasn't sure if its cause we were exhausted, or due to the place blasting A/C, or if the food really was that good. 

For appetizers, we ordered the Berkshire Pork Belly Gua Bao, and Roast Duck Gua Bao.
