847-724-1111  •  $$
ADDRESS: 952 Harlem Ave, Glenview, IL 60025
CUISINE: Korean
FEATURES: Handicap Access, Kid Friendly, Smoke Free, Vegetarian Friendly
DESCRIPTION
A hidden strip-mall gem in Glenview, a northern 'burb of Chicago, Cho Jung impresses with banchan made in-house and a variety of exotic, spicy soups. 
"Seekers of Chicagoland's finest pajeon, the savory griddled scallion fritters found on 98 percent of Korean menus, will halt their search at Glenview's Cho Jung. The haemul pajeon here, a seafood version mandatory with OB or Hite beer, embeds diced squid, mussels and green onion slivers into its lacy golden crust." 
— Kevin Pang, Chicago Tribune, Aug. 30, 2012

"... the real strength are the soups and stews, from roiling soft bean curd soondubu jigae, enriched by a raw egg yolk, to the green-tea-scented oyster and seaweed soup, to the fiery pork neck stew, to the unusual, and perhaps original, beoseot tang, a three-mushroom bowl of deep beefy umaminess, spiced with peppery chrysanthemum leaves and perilla seeds"
— Mike Sula, Chicago Reader
ADDITIONAL DETAILS
Beer and wine available. Serving lunch and dinner Tue–Sun. Closed Mon.
