Paul & Suzie were very successful in Chinatown, where Paul was featured in a number of Chicago Tribune and Chicago Sun-Times articles, he was rated as the top chef in Chinatown for many years. He was truly a “Master of Creations”. Paul & Suzie were determined to open up another restaurant, but had difficulty finding the right location. In 1975, Suzie was dealing with the loss of her mother and was emotionally drained; on one odd night, she had woken from a dream, where her mother’s spirit had guided her to this exact location, which has been the home of Chef Shangri-la ever since. 35 years later, Betty, the youngest of Paul & Suzie and her husband, Duane are now the 2nd generation owners. Betty & Duane will continue to operate the Fong tradition. They welcome you to a more enhanced tropical setting, featuring our 35 year original recipe on all signature dishes and cocktails. They will also be featuring a “SPECIAL MENU” that includes ASIAN FUSION DISHES like Japanese maki rolls, Thai curry, Spicy Korean chicken wings, and much more.
