Chin’s 34th street fishery – food

If you don’t mind eating from plastic plates or your chowder in a plastic bowl ( but I admit it’s a bright color ), but you care about seafood, then Chin’s is a great place.

If you don’t mind bread rolls slathered in oil with big pieces of garlic on top, then you might find Chin’s fun.

I like it, but of course I don’t mind my drinking water in a throwaway glass, but I was thrilled my beer came with a glass tumbler.

A step down? Not at all – my favorite place for fish in Chicagoland.

When the texture of the potatoes is just right, the chowder is pure delight !

Then two en trays to share, blackened halibut, and crab legs. Like the old quote from the Japanese anime “Full Metal Alchemist”, these two courses allowed Jan and I “equivalent exchange”

    Yum! We should go there!

  2. Another great meal! (ps. I like all your poetry!)

  3. I pressed the like button because I love how you support your local eateries! Not because of the seafood. Would you believe I don’t eat fish or seafood? It totally grosses me out! I know I know, people always look at me as if I’m insane when I admit that!

    I love seafood and reckon we have some of the best seafood – price vs quality – in the world. Seafood buffets are big business in Singapore.
