The Food Guy: 88 Marketplace the Perfect Place to Celebrate Chinese New Year

NBC Universal, Inc.

The Chinese New Year – also known as the Lunar New Year – begins next Tuesday, and the Year of the Tiger will bring with it symbolic foods for celebrations.

NBC 5’s Food Guy Steve Dolinsky says you can celebrate with nearly a dozen tasty options in one enormous shopping center, located just west of Chicago’s Chinatown neighborhood.

The 88 Marketplace is located at 2105 South Jefferson Street, and if you love Asian food, then you likely have heard of it already. If not, then you’ve absolutely hit the jackpot.

At two levels, the 88 Marketplace complex, located between the Chicago River and the Dan Ryan Expressway, is absolutely massive.

There are treats everywhere, including imported goods, fresh produce and live seafood, but there are also more than a half-dozen other great eating options.

Parking is free, and all food is available on a first-come, first-served basis.
