Amitabul! The host of Awesome Vegans, Elysabeth Alfano, reviews the Chicago institution: Amitabul on LunchBreakLIVE! Elysabeth talks with Chef Bill who started Amitabul 26 years ago and business has been great ever since. With a dedicated following, Chicagoans come to Amitabul for the fresh food, home-made by Chef Bill, and the spiritual atmosphere.
Chef Bill’s dishes are 95% oil free with distinctive spices and sauces. When Elysabeth visited the restaurant at 2:30p, the restaurant was still packed.
If you are visiting Chicago or already live there, be sure to visit Amitabul and check out the popular Dr. K.’s Cure All Noodle Soup! With a soup bowl as big as your head, this dish can cure anything from the common cold to a hangover!
Other dishes that Elysabeth tried were Chop Chae, Sweet Curry Noodle, Mung Bean Pancakes, Cold Buckwheat Noodle Salad and Dumplings. Pure yum!!
