Into the “Belly” of Bill Kim

Bill Kim

Bill Kim at work.

I like my food spicy, fast and great. Chef Bill Kim consistently delivers on all points at each of his Chicago restaurants: Urban Belly (3053 N California Ave), Belly Shack (1912 North Western Avenue) and Belly Q (1400 W Randolph).

The casual atmosphere of these fast food spots belie the tasty, modern Korean cuisine that Kim infuses into each bite. Don’t let it stop you. Each “Belly” should be on your foodie must-try list.
