“I might be biased because I love Mexican food and Korean food but Chi’Lantro is seriously one of my favorite restaurants.
The ambiance is so nice and open, very clean and welcoming. I like that they have an open-kitchen concept and I love their mural. The employees were super nice and gave their suggestions on which Curated Bowl they liked and they suggested that I try their Japchae con Queso. I am so glad I did. It is my favorite thing I have gotten from Chi’Lantro! This is my 5th time coming but it has been the most delicious. I definitely will be swapping my regular order for the Japchae con Queso, it’s delicious!
I also took advantage of their 15% OFF for elites and got an agua fresca and the Kimchi Fries with spicy pork. Wow, the agua frescas were phenomenal. I tried them all and my fav was definitely the Strawberry Limeade. The Kimchi Fries are also a must! They are so favorable and spicy! The Spicy Pork on top paired amazingly with the queso and the fries. Portions are huge so now I’ll have a nice dinner as well.
Thank you Yelp and the Chi’lantro team! This was a delicious treat to start my Monday…” – Yelp Elite Anna G.
