Had the Works sandwhich and Worker Meal - wow!

The sandwhich featured a superbly crisp baguette stuffed with pork and beef, and the freshest veggies and herbs. Just perfect.

The Worker Meal was pickled veggies, white rice, and the yummy sea and most tender pork meatballs we’ve ever had! And they were in the lightest and beautiful tomato broth...so satisfying.

And of course the iced coffee with condensed milk - fantastic!!!

Thank tmatta

Out of my three day foodie trip to Chicago, Ca Phe Da was the BEST place I dined. Staying in the neighborhood of Pilsen, I wandered in on a Tuesday afternoon around 4pm for a very late lunch. Despite an empty restaurant, I had a stellar experience and I cannot wait to go back. Here's why:

1) Atmosphere: It's beautifully designed. Once you walk in, it's set up like a fancy, yet still approachable diner with small tables and a long bar with bar stools. The art on the walls fit the style. If you're into Instagram, the large "cocktail" sign looks great on the gram.

2) Food: Even if the atmosphere was off, the food alone would give it a 5-star rating. The banh mi sandwich with a fried egg on top is really, really good. For dessert, order the brioche with coconut jam.

3) Cocktail: Their drinks are on point. I ordered the whiskey cocktail and the bartender made it sweet just the way I like it.

4) Neighborhood: It's in the heart of Pilsen, an emerging art neighborhood, and now a foodie neighborhood thanks to Ca Phe Da.

If you like neo-Vietnamese food, definitely add Ca Phe Da to your list.

Really enjoyed this little place. Has a lot of character and a variety of Vietnamese selections including desserts and drinks. I had the Pho Ga with Chicken. Friends had the Chicken Banh Mi and Chicken Salad. Very good with great flavor. My only complaint are the stools. They are very uncomfortable. My left butt cheek fell asleep! :)
