Chicago is known for all of the great burgers, hence the newly crowned best burger, and other carnivoire dreams but there are quite few veggie options around town to enjoy. This week, we chose a tasty falfel with a modern edge that is made with food allergies in mind.
Modern Asian Kitchen, located at 1924 W. Division, is a fast casual spot with something for everyone. The falfel is made with made with edamame & chickpeas and served over served over white rice, brown rice, or quinoa. The non-spicy version is hightlighted with a bit of sweetness while the medium and spicy version raise the heat level a bit. All of the versions are gluten-free and vegetarian friendly.
