Cozy Noodles on Sheffield is overwhelming. There are toys in the front window, and lining all of the walls. There is a collection of license plates in the front entry way. There is a collection of thermoses on one wall. In the women’s restroom there are hundreds of pez despensers on the walls. I didn’t count, because I would have been in there for ages.
There is an article from the Chicago Reader on the restaurant’s website. It goes into more detail on the collection and the history of the restaurant’s owner/collector Suppalek Meunprasittiueg or Tee for short. He started collecting when he was 12. He collects most things from flea markets, but has recently been using the internet to add to it. Read more about the collection here and find directions to Cozy here.
