    It's hard to separate the food at Time Out Market, which is quite good, from the experience of eating it in such a vast, loud, distracting room (Graham Meyer reviewed four vendors for Crain's last week). At lunchtime, high-top communal tables fill up fast with cheek-by-jowl 20-somethings jostling for territory, waiting for their buzzers to buzz (food's ready for pickup!) and perhaps wondering if they ordered the right thing, given so many choices.

    Adding to the too-muchness, some perfectly fine bites get lost in blizzards of ingredients. Duck Inn Dogs' humble-sounding Chicago original beef-and-duck hot dog ($10) is topped with so many photogenic fixings, you're surprised to encounter a wiener under them; a Big Apple version ($12) goes wild with apple-caraway sauerkraut, horseradish mustard, pickles and a cloud of crunchy fried onions. Duck-fat fries are extra ($5). Two thin patties strain for attention in Mini Mott's cult-favorite original double cheeseburger ($12), unwieldy with American cheese, shoestring fried sweet potatoes, pickled jalapeno, miso-butter onions and hoisin aioli on a Hawaiian roll. Even Lost Larson's inherently complex, green-marzipan-draped duchess cake ($9 for a wedge)—which, still in mourning for the truly lost Swedish Bakery in Andersonville, we're happy to have at all—gilds its own lily with fussy flourishes.

    79彩票注册网址Abe Conlon's (Fat Rice) chickpea soup with spicy garlic sausage, potato and fava beans ($14) is a robust bowlful of winter-appropriate goodness, a substantial meal in itself, alone worth a trip to this food hall. We also liked the three big, plump Portuguese sardines with potato, chilies and black olives ($15) and applaud Conlon's courage in offering the dish here; the same could be said for his roast pork and Manila clams with sausage and fennel ($20). All delicious, if not exactly in sync with the Taste of Chicago-like vibe.

    79彩票注册网址Bill Kim (UrbanBelly) is famous for his caramelized pork dumplings ($9 for seven), but their sweetness isn't always what we're up for. Plus, here their texture was neither crisp nor tender on our visits, and by the time we got them in front of us, the first two we tried were the only ones still warm. (It's a big room, so potentially a long walk to your table.) But we're enthusiastic fans of his katsu udon soup ($14), which comes chock full o' noodles, mushrooms and crisp-breaded katsu chicken in a tasty pho broth.

    79彩票注册网址Thai Dang (HaiSous, Ca Phe Da) offers a serious menu of stellar Vietnamese dishes, including a gorgeously golden coconut-milk vegetable curry with steamed rice ($15) that could easily become a habit. More playful but equally masterful are his supersize chicken wings ($5 each) encased in sticky rice and then deep-fried to a crisp, with caramelized fish sauce and dried chilies.
