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”
