The video that had to be made

I've posted on many times about Katy's Dumpling House.

I was thrilled when I first found out that Katy's was moving into Oak Park.

I gushed about Katy's Dan Dan Mien and Korean Noodle Soup.

Even when I didn't like everything I had at Katy's, there was always a lot more that I did like. 

It's getting to the point where I feel like maybe I've written enough about Katy's…so, with the Village of Oak Park, I made a video about what at Katy's I think you really should eat. It was the video that had to be made.

Mongolian Chicken and a few of the other dishes you had at Katy's I'm pretty sure are carryovers from Hutong, which is cool, James, but you really should eat Katy's noodles.

I love Katy's, which I discovered just several months ago, and glad there is one close to where I live. I have had a number of items at Katy's, but I especially love the Mongolian Chicken and the Kung Bao -- the vegetables, along with the chicken, in each instance were delivered with a perfect doneness. I did not care for the beef in the Mongolian Beef dish, but I the place gets top shelf rating from me, and I have not even tried what people really rave about: the noodles and the dumplings!

LtPfOP, I agree Katy's is not for everyone, but I give the owners credit for maintaining a fairly broad menu...and who doesn't like noodles? No one!

Great suggestions. I'm addicted to the beef tendon noodle soup at Katy's. I realize it may not be for everyone, but for anyone with an open mind and an appetite for something unique please try it. Low in fat and high in protein, I liken the heavily braised tendon to meat jello. Yummy, yummy meat jello. The soup has some heat and those AMAZING noodles that David highlighted. Too adventurous? Stick to the killer noodle pancake. Give this place a try! It's a treasure in your backyard.
