As much as I love the mapo tofu from <a target="_blank" href="http://maps.google.com/maps/place?client=safari&amp;rls=en&amp;oe=UTF-8&amp;um=1&amp;ie=UTF-8&amp;q=double+li+chicago&amp;fb=1&amp;gl=us&amp;hq=double+li&amp;hnear=chicago&amp;cid=10144478267087798311">Double Li</a> and the welcoming hot pots at <a target="_blank" href="http://www.tonygourmetgroup.com/restaurant.aspx">Lao Szechuan</a> and the &quot;Toronto&quot; fried rice at <a target="_blank" href="http://www.chinatownphoenix.com/">Phoenix</a>, I've recently been enjoying the dim sum service at <a target="_blank" href="http://www.triplecrownchicago.com/">Triple Crown</a> (still nothing near the experience at <a target="_blank" href="http://maps.google.com/maps/place?client=safari&amp;rls=en&amp;oe=UTF-8&amp;um=1&amp;ie=UTF-8&amp;q=shui+wah+chicago&amp;fb=1&amp;gl=us&amp;hq=shui+wah&amp;hnear=chicago&amp;cid=14174573783806619508">Shui Wah</a>, but that's another story). One of the items I had off of the menu recently was something they call the &quot;brisket crepe.&quot; It's essentially slowly-braised brisket, jammed with all sorts of wonderful spices like star anise and five-spice, then slowly-cooked in a clay pot with a slightly thick rice flour crepe. The sauce alone is worth devouring - maybe over rice the next day.</p><p>As much as I think the dim sum is worth checking out at Triple Crown, the brisket crepe is absolutely something you should eat.
