Our third Asian adventure takes us down to South Asia. Recommended by Chicago Cab Fare, "Serena (http://www.allmenus.com/il/chicago/314649-serena-restaurant/menu/) is the new restaurant from the former chef at Usmania, which I considered to be the best Pakistani restaurant in Chicago. Usmania and Serena unsurprisingly have a lot in common. While not Charlie Trotter’s by any stretch of the imagination, both lean more upscale than most other restaurants on Devon. They each also have very extensive menus. One of Serena’s quirks, however, is that it has a substantial selection of Chinese dishes. Some of you may know that Usmania’s ownership group also runs a Halal-Chinese restaurant on Devon, and it looks like the chef decided to bring several of those recipes along with him." Serena is a halal restaurant.
