Chicago Eats - Me Dee Cafe

Me Dee Cafe is a Thai place. They love cows. I don't know why. There are mini golden cow statues, the wall is a painting with a half dozen cows, and the logo is a cow. They seriously love cows. Luckily, this Ravenswood restaurant serves up some pretty damn good food, and they're open late too! Although there's a lot of OK dishes on the menu, there are some standouts - if you're a fan of congee, look no further...

Sunny Sunny
Pan fried quail egg. So good and fun to look at.

Mushroom n Cheese
These are mushrooms. With chihuahua cheese. CHIHUAHUA! I mean, need I say more?

Bowl of Congee (Large)
You start off with a bowl of congee. If you order 5 or more congee dishes, you get a large bowl for free! Not a bad way to save $3.

Ong Choy, Thai Style Chicken Sausage

Stir Fried Chicken, Baby Clams

 Crispy Pork Belly

Almond Pad Thai
 Lots of sauce. Good overall. Nothing that blew me out of the water.

Crab Fried Rice
They put in big chunks of crab meat. Awesome. Lots of other places break up the crab so you don't even know if you got any. Me Dee does it right and gives you lots of nice, big pieces so you know exactly how much crab you're getting.
