As of the time of this review, I was trying to find and get to know some hidden gems of Chicago, as well as doing and seeing things very different or almost impossible to find in my home country. Of course, food is included.
Jibek Jolu is a central-Asian restaurant and I had no idea of what to expect. Besides a few words in Russian, all I knew was the geography pf the place. Turns out people there have a good taste in food actually.
I started with a Chebureki (fried pie with lamb, pretty similar to Brazilian Pastel) and a Stuffed Blini, a Russian pancake with beef, the last one being very good. The one thing that got more of my attention on the menu was the Mongolian Beef. It was indeed a good choice, very good meat, but for some reason it got cold quickly. Overall, the food was above what I expected.
I must say that what I liked the most was the Kompot juice. It is of some very clear pink color and looks like it is basically just water with some juice in it, but it is actually a very good combination of some fruits. If you like to mix things, go for it.
For anyone looking for something different (as for most this would be different), you've just found it.
