Lan's Old Town

Melanie Gonzalez

One of the great things about Old Town is the wide selection of places to eat.  You can go out for almost any type of food.  One of my favorite types of food happens to be Chinese food.  There is something about it, it's comforting and delicious and I simply crave it after a hard week of work.


It is because of this craving that I decided to go to Lan's in Old Town.  It is located at 1507 North Sedgwick street and even though I live in Lincoln Park, the trek was worth it.  Some people might say that the prices are a little high, but the quality makes it tolerable.


Pictures make it easy to know what you are ordering when you look at the menu.  This is helpful for anyone who is new to Chinese food.  They also indicate hot and spicy foods on the menu to ensure that there are no unwanted surprises when you get your food.


I have never tried the take out or delivery options that they offer, but they seem to be pretty popular at Lan's.  You can even order online or by phone.





The menu is made up of Mandarin and Szechwan food. I recommend the pot stickers.  They taste fresh and are absolutely delicious.


It's also very close to the Sedgwick stop so it's easy to get to. Another plus is that the owner is usually around and willing to talk to patrons.  He is very active in the restaurant so you know that he takes pride in it.  Overall, I had a great experience and I trust that you will too.
