Clark Street Food Tour

A few sundays ago some of us got together to walk down the 2500 block of Clark Street to taste some of the goodness and variety that it offers. We started at Del Seoul, went south of the border to Angela's and finished with some tasty cupcakes at Molly's. I wanted to keep going and stop at Aloha for Hawaiian, greek or even the german bakery but we left something for next time.

Del Seoul is still the great korean taco place it's always been. I would have ordered many more tacos but I wanted to leave room for future stops. Erica and i shared an order of dumplings (they're large with 8) and we each ordered a taco: Kalbi for her and BBQ pork for me. I love the tacos because they have so much interesting flavor a little spice and a nice balance with slaw. At 2.75/2.95 a taco you get a lot of food but they aren't cheap. I know there's a lot of options for korean street food in the city and I honestly can't compare (and would love to) but Del Seoul does good work.

Angela's Burrito Style has always been a staple for late night food along the clark street corridor and I've had my fair share of 4am steak burritos. This time we walked in and I just wanted to take part in our food tour so I ordered a simple cheese quesadilla. Good, small, cheap and fun. 

Molly's Cupcakes:
I had never been before but know that it's one of the best in the city. I love the little shop with a few tables and awesome swing chairs at the bar. We didn't need an entire box so I just ordered one cupcake - and I decided to order a custom cupcake. I chose banana cake with butter cream frosting and chocolate chips. It was delicious. Very filling and rich but tasty and wonderful. I love cupcakes and like them traditional - no fillings, not oversize or anything gimmicky. Molly's makes great baked goods the old fashion way and with care. I'm a new customer.

I know we'll do another food tour somewhere else in the near future and I hope to get more tasty stuff along the way.
