Baology is a fast casual spot in Logan Square that gets super crowded during lunch hours, but is way more enjoyable for a post-work solo dinner. They specialize in Taiwanese bao buns that are excellent across the board, but the best things to get here are the pork and shrimp dumplings with a side of the cold sesame noodles with peanut sauce.
