RE: Kuma's Corner - Chicago
Had lunch with 4 folks. Very good...not fantastic. Unbelievable topping choices from eggplant to fried onion rings to bbq pork to almost anything you can imagine. It is small and lacks parking. We got there around 1:30pm on a winter, Friday afternoon. We had a small wait of 20 minutes which was made longer because we did not know there was an order to seating. No one at the door to greet, no one standing and waiting, therefore we assumed, open table in a bar, grab it. I thought a system should be in place particularly with all the press on WTTW, Time Out and other websites.
I would strongly encourage a visit as the food was very good and there is a great selection of beers, some pricey but rare. Keep in mind you are only blocks from Hot Doug's, one of my favorite places in all of Chicago.
