Chicago: Affordable Restaurant for Birthday
I am going to be visiting my boyfriend this weekend in Chicago, and celebrating my birthday(it's Jan 19th). Any recommendations for affordable restaurants? I emphasize affordable since we are poor college/post-grad students. I am an adventurous eater; I like any kind of ethnic foods and love spicy foods.
He lives in Lakeview, so a restaurant in that vicinity would be nice. I am driving up, so driving to the restaurant could also be an option.
