Editorial Review of Everyday Thai

Everyday Thai

Straddling the border between Edgewater and Rogers Park, this Thai spot offers exactly what it claims to—everyday food. If ridiculously low prices for great food don't get you all hot and bothered, just sample the crab rangoon. These cheese dumplings—typically served in Chinese restaurants—are almost impossible to get right, but Everyday Thai excels here with chunks of real crab and celery blended into cream cheese and deep-fried in wonton skin. They're so good, you won't even need the sweet and sour chili sauce that accompanies them. Spring rolls filled with fresh cucumber, sprouts, egg and tofu also pleasantly surprise.

Entrees tend toward the greasy side. The Osaka Noodle dish—one of the house specialties—is made with real wheat udon noodles stir-fried with veggies, sesame and a special house fusion sauce. The curry and soup selections, while not the best in the city, certainly outdo anything else in this delivery zone (a virtual wasteland of decent Thai delivery joints). For a classic Thai dish, Everyday serves up simple roasted duck over steamed rice, but kicks it up in a separate duck curry concoction as well. Vegetarians should beware of ordering tofu dishes—many also include ground chicken, so read the fine print. Also, pay special attention to the menu's heat indicators, which aren't even remotely kidding. Delivery is fast, cheap and friendly, but don't think twice about dining in instead. Simple lines, docile colors and bubbling fountains make for a romantic atmosphere—an ideal locale for an impressive but affordable date for nearby Loyola students.

Average cost: <$10
