Here's Who Makes The Beef Stir Fry
We reveal the Chinese restaurant which makes the dish featured in the Guess the Restaurant contest. It's across from a school named for a sign of the zodiac. And we name the winner.
First, about those clues.
When we ran our Guess the Restaurant contest yesterday, showing a photo of a beef stir fry dish and asking you to guess which Niles or Morton Grove restaurant made it, we gave two clues.
The first is that the restaurant is across from a junior high school named for a manned space flight program and/or a sign of the zodiac. That would be Gemini Junior High on Greenwood Avenue in Niles.
The second clue is that the restaurant's name does not contain letters. That's because it's called 168 Chinese Restaurant, at 8922 N. Greenwood, Niles.
Christina and Luis Tse are celebrating their 15th year in business by offering 10 percent off dine-in and carry-out orders through Nov. 18, which is the eatery's actual anniversary date.
The couple opened the restaurant in 1997, when their oldest two children were at Maine East High School and the other three were at Apollo School and Gemini Junior High.
"Basically, our kids grew up in this restaurant," Christina said, adding that they would do their homework there after school. When they went to college--all have now graduated--they came back on weekends to work, she said.
And now to announce the contest entrant who wins the free entree. Seven entrants correctly guessed the dish is made by 168 Chinese restaurant, so we did a random drawing to determine the winner: Selena Delaurentis-Giannakaris.
Selena, please contact Kent or Rosana Tse at 168 Chinese Restaurant to redeem your free entree.
Everyone else, please play again next time.
