Mott St

1401 N. Ashland Ave.
Chicago, IL 60622


Edward Kim’s Ruxbin follow-up is a festive take on a night market in an undefined (purposely) Asian city. The compact space melds with the bustling-market theme and lends itself to a family-style dining vibe. Here, those hoping to venture beyond the neighborhood’s legion of sports bars are rewarded with the novel flavors of crab-brain-fried rice with Chinese sausage and coconut and an inspired reinterpretation of the Hangtown Fry, comprising a hoisin-topped omelet dotted with pickled mushrooms and fried oysters and resting on a pancake of fried noodles. Exotic cocktails incorporate ingredients such as malört and dashi (a Japanese fish stock) bitters.
