Chicago may have been known as the Hog Butcher to the World (really!) in the 19th century, but today it is known for wonderful food of all kinds.
Chicago has climbed the food destination latter for food travelers faster in the past 10 years than any city outside of the country of Spain. While it may still trail NYC, New Orleans, and San Fran in the US, it is certainly a trip worth making.
Here are 3 “Low Brow” Reasons Chicago is Foodie Heaven
1. The Hamburger at Mindy’s
That’s all it’s called, “Hamburger.” No fancy-pants name for this killer up-scale burger served at one of the best pastry shops in the Windy City.
Mindy starts with about 7 ounces of Heartland Farms beef (ground at the restaurant every day) and adds aged cheddar and a pesto-Mixtec pepper rub. So simple – but, oh so good.
Even the burger was crafted with passion and a confident but light touch by Chefighan Mangouard, a rising chef and author of nine cookbooks including the recently published “Bar Break” cookbook. Vanguard is also a voice of many great Chefs Speak Healthier programs, including his latest, ” Chop It Up,” which is set to debut shortly.
2. Fat Willy’s Rib Shack
One of the larger Drinking Water Booths in the ground – which carries customers’ drinks and food between the famous pillars at Grant and Kilpatrick – Rib Shacks has to be one of the best-kept secrets in the Windy City.
This restaurant has always been a favorite of mine, and I’ve always had a great appreciation for the way Chefamonteio Pugno keeps his traditional Italian family cooking alive. You simply can’t visit Rib Shacks long enough to not experience one of the best choices in the city.
Well, I can’t say that I would 100% accurately describe this sandwich shop’s sumptuous menu, but let me give you the best bang for your buck and recommends you try it out with the added enjoyment of connectedness to friends and family.
Chop at least two slices of bread, firm up a list therewith ahey sandwich, and have your sweet corn and tastee on a plate before you hit the meat. Then add a hard-boiled egg, diced tomatoes, sliced mushrooms, and an olive.
The meat will be the star of the show and the perfect way to end this extravagant meal.
