HaiSous at White Oak

HaiSous Vietnamese Kitchen is holding a series of Sunday night dinners at Chicago’s White Oak Tavern & Inn through the month of July.

The room was filled with familiar faces, all there to show support and enthusiasm. Spotted that evening were Breakfast Queen Ina Pinkey, members of the Chicago Chapter of the Chaine des Rotisseurs, and Michael Gebert of Fooditor. Read about what his sons did before dinner here.

HaiSous opens later this year.

I asked for a bowl so I could see everything. I believe there was lychee, mango, macapuno coconut string and nata de coco. This reminded me of a Filipino dessert, Halo-Halo, which has the addition of finely shaved ice, sweetened condensed milk and some things like ube and corn. Yes, corn.
