Bucktown/Wicker Park Food Tour Chicago

This was another great food tour which took us around the Bucktown and Wicker Park areas.  The guide was very informative and had interesting stories about the houses, people and history of the area.

Starting at George’s Hot Dogs for the traditional Chicago style hot dog (never put ketchup on it!):

We then moved on to Hot Chocolate – award winning sweets, but they also do dinners (book in advance!).  The homemade marshmallow on top was amazing!

We then popped into the Goddess and Grocer for a healthier salad treat, and got to check out the wares of this beautiful deli:

After a bit of a wander around the area, learning about it’s history and admiring the houses, we retreated from the cold at a cleverly named and branded pizza joint, Piece, for a slice of the much more popular thin crust pizza and a small taste of 312 beer:

Just as we thought we were full of food, we had one more savoury stop, Sultan’s Market for a falafel filled pita bread (it was amazing!):

Finally we made it to my personal favourite, iCream, where they make their ice cream to order with liquid nitrogen.  This means you can basically order any flavour combination your heart desires!  Ours was nutella, cream soda and white chocoalte:
