Fat Rice (Revisited) - Chicago, IL
Anytime Mrs. H. and I want Macanese food, we know we can find it just around the corner from our Xmas holiday rental condo in Chicago at Fat Rice (2957 W. Diversey Avenue). This year we stopped in for brunch and also checked out a few goodies (such as the Portuguese egg custard tart and the savory Macau rice crisp with nori, sesame, fish sauce caramel, and pig floss) at their new bakery next door.
