Delightful Pastries at Chicago French Market Introduce Two New Savory Dishes at the Chicago French Market
Delightful Pastries has introduced a new dish Chinski Dun, a fusion dish that brings together the ethnic heritage of its two partners Robert Hawryszczuk, who is Polish, and his wife Nico Hua, who is Chinese.

A mouth-watering soy sauce-based Chinese pork belly stew with ginger, garlic, pepper, green onions and Asian herbs, the Chinski Dun ($8.25) is served with whole potatoes. "It is a great combination of Asian cooking with a European twist," says Hua.

The second new dish, Popcorn Piggy ($6.50), is a great snack food inspired by popcorn chicken. It is a great option for those who love Delightful Pastries' Three Piggly Wiggly sandwich or any pork enthusiast. It is served with a homemade dipping sauce. Both are available only at the French Market location.

Chicago French Market customers also will be able to add cheese and egg to the Three Piggly Wiggly ($10) for just a dollar more.
