More than 20 years ago, Chinese immigrant Nai Tiao opened Great Sea on the Korean stretch of Lawrence Avenue and unveiled a now legendary lollipop-style soy-and-chili-glazed chicken wing. His daughter, Karen Lim, has taken these “Little Hotties” to Pilsen. The decor screams franchise, but the food is the real deal. Freshly fried egg rolls are stuffed with peppery vinegar-laced cabbage and leeks; soy-splashed fried rice is topped with fluffy butterflied caramelized shrimp; and the sweet-and-spicy namesake wings are as good as you’ve heard.
