Editorial Review of Baba Palace

Itís a green monster at the corner of Chicago and Orleans, but I suspect many passers-by ignore it, thinking itís a dark, dank, ethnic eatery with cheap food and foreign language television playing in all corners. Those passers-by would be right on all counts save one: Baba Palace is not to be ignored. The food here is one of the best bargains in downtown, with heaping helpings (in either half orders for $4, enough food for a modest appetite, or full portions for $7).

Instead of wasting your time trying to decode the giant menu on the wall, head to the counter, where youíll find a series of small plates covered by plastic wrap. Each plate features one of that dayís specials (frontier chicken, daal, mixed vegetables, etc.). The food is quick but hearty in a way that traditional fast food never could be. Better yet, itís located near the Chicago Red and Brown Line stops and open 24 hours. Try the $.75 samosas with yogurt sauce.

Average cost: <$10
