Bill Kim hits the mark at these fusion "favorites" offering "crave" -worthy Asian eats ( "to-die-for" noodles, rice dishes to "write home about" ) made even more remarkable given their "quality" -to-price ratio; the funky counter-order digs have communal seats and bar service, and the West Loop location shares a building with its sibling bellyQ.
