I’ve just arrive back from 2 weeks in the States, and of course one of my main sightseeing tasks included food! Since I’ve never been to Chicago before, and didn’t know the city very well, I booked in for a Chicago Food Planet Tour. Here are some of the dishes we ate along the way:
Reuben Sandwich, with their own swirled rye bread, home made sauerkraut and thousand island dressing (which includes beetroot and boiled egg!) at Ashkenaz Deli:
Deep Dish pizza at Lou Malnati’s – more like a pie than a pizza, the pastry-like crust is delicious:
The Spice House was next; they are experts in anything to do with herbs and spices – my personal favourite was the Porcini Salt Cream:
The onto the sweet part – The Fudge Pot, where we tried some delicious honeycomb chocolate crunch:
After learning a bit of history of the area, we finished at Delightful Pastries for some traditional Polish treats:
Overall, it was a great tour, from the food aspect and from the historical aspect. I’d highly recommend it for people who have not visited Chicago before!
