Restaurant Review – D Cuisine

Happy Lunar New Year! 

A new year brings new possibilities, new life, and new opportunities. On February 1, the Lunar New Year bid goodbye to the Year of the Ox, and entered the Year of the Tiger, beginning at sunset on the day of the second New Moon, following the Winter Solstice on December 21. 

What better way to celebrate the Year of the Tiger than with a special meal of traditional Chinese small plates? 

Known to world as Dim Sum, Lincoln Park’s D Cuisine recommends that a traditional dim sum is “best enjoyed with tea in the company of family and friends.”

We couldn’t agree more!

D Cuisine, under the direction of Chef/Owner Danny Fang, serves contemporaryversions of traditional dishes from his native Guangdong region of Hong Kong.

And just what is dim sum? D Cuisine describes it as “several kinds of steamed buns like char siu bao (roast pork buns), deep fried dumplings like hahm sui gohk (glutinous rice dumplings), rice noodle rolls like ngau cheung (beef noodle rolls) and desserts like djeen dui (fried sesame balls). Food is usually served three or four servings to a portion and arrives in bamboo steamers or on small plates.”

Ever-conscious of the need to please the customer, Chef Fang serves small, medium, large, and extra-large plates. Along with the dim sum choices, D Cuisine provides a full menu of Asian specialties, including unusual, palate-pleasing soups, such as Bamboo Fungus with Dry Scallop Seafood Soup, or a Shrimp with Tomato Tofu Soup.

The large menu features such specialties as Steamed Spare Ribs, Green Chive Dumpling, Baked Bbq Pork Bun, Baked Creamy Egg Yolk Bun, and Egg Tarts. Then, move Deep Fried Minced Pork Dumplings, or Honey Sauce Short Ribs. Other dim sum choices include Pan-Fried Pot Stickers and Pan-Fried Turnip Cakes. 

Your dim sum experience is complete with your choice of a sweet treat like Coconut Milk Red Bean Pudding or a light and refreshing Mango Pudding.

Google reviews were glowing. 

“Best Cantonese food in Chicago. As a Cantonese myself, I’m always so picky about dim sum and Canton food. And the chef here KNOWS how to make authentic Cantonese food. Must try: egg tarts, egg yolk buns, bbq pork buns, dried scallop & egg white fried rice, beef chow fun.”

This food was crazy good…it really hit the spot. Dim sum is freshly made and great quality, this is not your average cook-from-frozen dim sum a lot of other places have. If you live on the north side, you can save a trip to Chinatown and just get D Cuisine, it’s as good or better.”

“I got the shrimp dumpling, steam bbq pork bun, egg custard bun, stir fried sticky rice, and beef chow fun,” wrote another reviewer. “Everything was authentic and delicious. Haven’t had food this good in a long time.”

D Cuisine is located at 2723 N. Clark Street. They are open Monday to Sunday, 10am – 10pm, and walk-ins are welcome. For more information, click here.

Chicago Home and Lifestyles – Make your own spice blends

I have found my old standby spice mixes I use like Taco or Fajita mix are so salty lately, even the so-called “low Sodium.” Even the Italian gravy mix is so salty it is almost inedible! But you probably have the ingredients to make your own blend and you can salt to YOUR taste.

An all-purpose Taco blend goes as follows; 2 tbsp. chili powder, 1 ½ tsp. paprika, 2 tsp cumin, 1/2 tsp. onion powder, ½ tsp. garlic powder, ¼ tsp. cayenne, ½ tsp. black pepper, ¼ tsp. oregano, salt. I left out amount of salt. Salt to taste. Fajita blend is similar only make these few tweaks. Decrease chili powder to 1tsp. Increase paprika to 2tsp, onion powder to 1tsp., and garlic powder to 2 tsp. add a good pinch of sugar.

Chili seasoning and Cajun blends are similar for we non-Cajun connoisseurs. Two½ tbsp. paprika, 1tbsp. onion powder, 2tbsp. garlic powder, 1tbsp. cayenne, 1tbsp. black pepper, 1tbsp. oregano, 1tbsp. thyme, 2tbsp. salt although I would start with half that amount. 

Italian seasoning is great for sauce or beef gravy. You need, 4tbsp. basil, ½ tsp. onion powder, 1tbsp. garlic powder, 2tbsp. rosemary, 1tsp. sage, 1tsp. marjoram, 2tbsp. oregano, 2tbsp. thyme. 

Dry spices do have a decent shelf life but lose some of their flavor after a time. I usually buy all new dried spices and herbs yearly before the holidays. Most will still have good flavor that long. Store them in the coolest part of your kitchen, pantries are best if you are blessed with one. So, try making your own blends. Not just for controlling salt but making your seasoning your own.

Five Home Repairs To Budget For

You’re going to have to do some regular repairs and maintenance on your home—it’s just a fact of home ownership. So that you’re not caught unprepared, it’s a good idea to keep a budget and set aside some funds for when the following repairs inevitably come up.

Light switches: Beyond your typical light bulb replacements, the wiring can occasionally go bad in a light fixture, causing it to be unresponsive when you turn the light on. An electrician can fix it quickly for around $100.

Gutter maintenance: Over time, the weight and weather will be too much for your gutters, causing them break away from the home and require fixing. It’s possible to fix them yourself, but it will typically cost up to $400 to have them fixed professionally.

Drywall repairs: It’s easier than you’d think to put a hole in your walls, especially if you bump them when moving furniture. It can cost up to $300 for professional repairs.

Running toilet: The moving parts and valves in a toilet can wear out over the years, and you’ll want to get it fixed quickly to save on water bills and keep your bathrooms usable. It’s about a two-hour job to fix for professional plumbers, and they charge up to $150 an hour, depending on your market.

Tile repairs: Tile goes through a lot of abuse, and it’s not just impact from heavy objects that can damage individual tiles—years of foot traffic will also cause damage. Repair costs can vary greatly because of the cost of individual tiles, but it’s good to set aside around $200.

Restaurant Review – Chicago Cut Steakhouse

Winter along the Riverwalk, crossing the Chicago Loop to River North along Wacker Drive, is spectacular…bright lights dancing across an icy Chicago River, looking out to Lake Michigan beyond the locks.

Yes, it’s spectacular…as long as that view is from a warm, cozy restaurant, sipping a special cocktail or fine wine, and dining on a hearty, thick steak (and/or seafood) prepared specifically to your liking. 

Enter Chicago Cut Steakhouse, named as one of ‘Open Table’s 100 Most Scenic Restaurants in America.’ Not only is it scenic, it’s a place to see and be seen, where Chicago’s sports stars (Chicago Cubs Blackhawks, White Sox, Hall of Famers) and business executives mingle with neighborhood regulars and families. Yes, it’s expensive, but for special celebrations, it can’t be beat for popping the question, celebrating a special anniversary, or a ‘big’ birthday.  

As they say on their website, the proprietors of Chicago Cut, co-owners David Flom and Matthew Moore, set out to “redefine the great American Steakhouse.” Not many steakhouses feature USDA Prime Steaks that find life in a dry aging room on site, as well as serving  innovative side dishes, fresh salads, and seafood. 

Start your meal with Chicago Cut’s most famous appetizer. ‘Lobsterscargot’ pairs

Maine lobster tail pieces in garlic butter with havarti and crostinis. Or for an elegant alternative, the Lobster Mac ‘n Cheese received raves. For a flavorful take on cruciferous vegetables, reviewers raved about Chicago Cut’s Brussel Sprouts 

with Bacon Lardons & Maple Syrup, as well as the Sautéed or Steamed Broccoli.  For a whimsical touch, the Lollipop Lamb Chops arehard to beat. They’re also a fun way to introduce your kids to a meat that they may only see on holidays.

How do you like your steak? Porterhouse?  Double-Cut Porterhouse? Bone-in? Filet Mignon? With a Lobster Tail for a memorable surf and turf? Your choice, your way. Pair it with an ala carte salad, such as their Lobster Salad with iceberg lettuce, corn, heirloom tomatoes & champagne vinaigrette. Or a

Mediterranean Salad with romaine, kalamata olives, feta, Greek dressing. Too many other side options to list here! 

Dessert choices are unique to each day. Ask your server for details. 

Of more than 5,000 positive online reviews, one rapturous diner wrote on Google, “Incredible meal. I got the steak sandwich medium rare, and every bite was absolutely incredible. The meat was juicy, flavorful, bread was soft and added so much to the sandwich.The staff was very attentive and continually came by to refill our waters and check up on us.

The view!!! Amazing view of Chicago river front. It was incredible to eat a wonderful Chicago steak sandwich looking out at the skyscrapers and river.”

“With river views and delightful staff you can’t go wrong at Chicago Cut,” wrote another reviewer. “Our waiter was amazing, kind, personable and had great recommendations. The lobstercargot was phenomenal. We both had filet mignon and it was buttery soft with great flavor. The Brussels (sprouts) were tasty and mashed potatoes seasoned perfectly.”

Chicago Cut Steakhouse is located at 300 N. LaSalle Street, (LaSalle & Kinzie). Lunch is served Monday–Saturday, 11am–3pm. Dinner hours are Monday –Thursday,  3pm–10pm. On Fridays and Saturdays, Chicago Cut is open 3pm–11pm. For reservations click here.

The Ins And Outs Of Home Inspection

Home inspection is a crucial step in the homebuying process. After finding the perfect house, you will want to ensure that there are no hidden faults that may require lengthy and expensive repairs or renovations down the line.

To prepare you for this process, here are the top four things you need to know.

The buyer is responsible for the inspection. Make sure you give yourself ample time to find a reputable, certified home inspector by asking for referrals from your real estate agent, friends, and family and do your research online. Plus, don’t forget to factor in the cost of the inspection into your budget.

Home inspectors are usually generalists. They will evaluate most areas of your home, such as the foundation, basement, plumbing, electrical systems, heating and cooling systems, walls, floors, ceilings, and attics. But, if your home is equipped with special features, like a pool or chimney, you may need to hire a specialist.

Buyers can attend the inspection. In fact, a lot of inspectors suggest it! This is an opportunity for you to get any outstanding questions regarding the condition of the house you are purchasing answered.

You have options if the inspection uncovers a problem. If the problems discovered are serious, like structural damage or safety issues, the seller is legally required to fix them. You also have the option to back out of the purchase without facing any consequences. If the problems are smaller, you can submit a formal request for repairs and negotiate for them to cover some or all of the cost.
