Food Beat: Sun Wah Beijing Duck, Bank-Busting Marc Burger

(Photo: A $20 meal at Macy’s Marc Burger? A high price to pay, but a hell of a payoff.)

If it’s any day ending in “-day”, you know I’m still eating. This weekend on my Gaper’s Block Drive-Thru foodie byline, the love is as crispy as it is juicy. Browse through to Chicago’s favorite, home-grown group blog and read all about it:

Eat This Duck at Argyle Street’s Sun Wah
Fried Beijing Duck, duck fried rice, duck soup, and to gild the Chinese lilly, sorbet for $30 per duck? It’s the best Chinese barbeque deal in town folks, and co-proprietor Kelly Cheng will be happy to carve it up for you.

Too Expensive, Too Good at Macy’s Marc Burger
It’s the most expensive food-court burger you’ll ever eat, but this new Macy’s State Street cafeteria counter will have you wishing your wallet was fatter–in order to come back for more.

If any Dear Reader out there has a place they’d like to recommend, leave a comment and let me know! Or a heart doctor, for that matter.

  1. Jury’s, at Lincoln and Pensacola (just south of Montrose). Really good burgers, but the crab cakes with dill sauce are my favorite thing there. Also on the weekends they have a special wine list that sells really good bottles of wine for a little over half what you would normally pay for the bottle in a restaurant.

  2. I’m not a burger fan and haven’t eaten a ground beef hamburger since 1998, but have you tried The Counter? It’s a chain but a popular place more so out on the west coast where people still think In-and-Out burger is God’s gift. Of course we all know different. Steak’n’Shake could run them out of business. Anyway…go and try The Counter in Lincoln Park. You might enjoy myriad ways of creating your superburger.
