I work in the Loop in Chicago and go out to eat for lunch a lot. Not many of my usual lunch destinations are as unique as Saucy Porka. I went there today around 1:30 on a cold December Wednesday. The inside had been decorated with some garland and lights around the register for the holidays. Was pleased to see... More

I'm surprised this place has such amazing reviews both here on TripAdvisor and on Yelp. Perhaps it's good with the business lunch crowd? We stopped here for our first meal in Chicago after coming from the airport. We were looking for a good pescatarian friendly lunch at a fast-casual place. The veggie egg rolls were amazing and I'd order those... More

My fiance and I went there for lunch during our Chicago vacation. The cashiers/waitresses were very helpful and polite. We ordered the Chorizo egg rolls, sweet potato fries, a curry chicken/miso short-rib/pork baco (instead of a traditional taco shell, it's a type of asian bun). The egg rolls were delicious alone but had an amazing avocado aioli to dip it... More

Stopped by Saucy Porka for lunch after attending to buuisness in Chicago. It was a little difficult to find but than again I am not familiar with Chicago. While there is seating, it's not your typical sit down restaurant where you're waited on. You order your food than have a seat. The menu boasts a unique Asian/Latin fusion which appealed... More

I have NOT dined at this location. I've only had business lunches catered from this place. So this review does not contain feedback regarding service or ambiance. A refreshing break from the boring catered sandwiches you see at most business lunches. Don't miss: Sofrito Marinated Shrimp Baco, Asian Style Paella and Banana Nutella Beignets

Phenomenal food and experience! Our group had the Asian paella, ramen, carnita bao, shrimp bao, and then the waitress brought out some curry sweet potato fries since it was our first visit. This fast casual restaurant really brought its A-game!

Who would have thought a Taco, with Asian influence delivered on a Bao Bun would be so tasty and so filling While working on a project in Downtown Chicago, I've been trying new and different lunch options. While wondering around the area, I found Saucy Porka and it was love at first bite. The location is not easy to find,... More

We had an uncommonly friendly experience with the staff, here, I think in part because we came well before the lunch rush and in part because the staff is just naturally friendly! The food is good and affordable, but I'm told that the small place can become impossibly crowded at times. They don't have public restrooms or waitstaff, so come... More

Staying in Downtown / The Loop

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown / The Loop
Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a good starting point to sample the city's energy and flavor. This central business district boasts Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of Millennium Park and Cloud Gate (“The Bean”), one of the most iconic landmarks in the city. A stunning skyline coupled with cultural attractions like the Art Institute of Chicago present a Downtown where work and play peacefully coexist.
