THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Belly Shack Restaurant Review

: Chef Bill Kim (Urban Belly) and his wife, Yvonne Cadiz-Kim, combined their Korean and Puerto Rican backgrounds to produce fusion flavor at this hip Wicker Park spot with an industrial edge. A long communal table anchors the urban-feeling space, which is adorned with graffiti-like details on the walls. Choose among sandwich creations like the belly dog with egg noodles and pickled green papaya and the pork belly banh mi. Or go for the eclectic taco platter with Korean barbecue beef, refried lentils and dirty rice. Lighter eaters might appreciate the wheat berry bowl with arugula, soy-sesame marinated tofu, fried egg and pickled daikon. Pair the goods with a short but though-out list of saké margaritas, beer, wine and cider. Delivery is available.
