Rickshaw Republic

Price Range: $ **

The Setiawan family’s front lawn was a frequent resting place for the local Rickshaw drivers. It may have been the aromatic smells coming from the kitchen that drew them, or the chatty children who enjoyed being regaled by the driver’s tales that kept them there. Whatever it was, the rickshaw made a big impression on Oscar and Emil, almost as much as the culture and flavors of the street food that they enjoyed with their family while living in Indonesia.

Rickshaw Republic isn’t just about peddling plates, it’s about peddling dreams. The dream of a mother to have her own restaurant, of a father to leave his family a legacy of their own in the United States, of a son to fulfill his destiny of being a great chef, and of his brother to make all these wishes and his own come true, by bringing the vibrant culture of Indonesia and its street food experience to Chicago.

About us ...
