    Was going to get a slice of pizza .As I was walking past Steve's Bite, the food smelled great. They menu looked delicious, I tried the Gyro bowl & Chicken Bowl. I could not resist the taffy apple grapes. I was offered a sample of the chili, it was awesome. a great balance of spices. It was quite delicious, am i am super picky.
    I enjoyed both entrees, the gyro & chicken was nicely seasoned , on a bed of rice & mixed salad , lightly drizzled vinagarette.
    Overall Steve"s Bite is a wonderful change from the same old fast food cycle. You have got to try a meal, you will not be disappointed.

    Chinese New Year 2018: Celebrate the Year of the Dog in Chicago
    As a young girl, I remember performing with my dance troupe beneath the pagoda in Chinatown Square for Chinese New Year, fluttering silk ribbons and pirouetting with long silk fans in mid-air. One of my fondest memories, though, is receiving red envelopes stuffed with lucky money - what kid wouldn't love that?
