Illinois/Chicago Area: Stir Crazy in OakbrookTerrace

Stir Crazy is a restaurant I went to while in the suburbs of Chicago. It serves various Asian dishes as well as featuring a make your own stir fry.

I've been to a few of this style of restaurants, but I like this one the best so far for a few reasons. First, it's nice that they add your tofu (or other protein of your choosing) when they cook the ood so you don't have to take up space in your bowl that can be used for broccoli or other veggies. Second, they have brown rice as an option. Third, they were nice enough to offer up their complete list of sauce ingredients so we could figure out which ones were vegan or not.

First, the coconut curry vegetables served with tofu and udon noodles:

This was really tasty. The sauce was awesome and the tofu was really great.

Next, a make your own stirfry with lots of veggies, tofu, and brown rice:

Overall, I had a great experience there and was impressed by both the service and the food.
