Taste of Chicago

img_3313The Taste of Chicago was just this past weekend at Grant Park and it was awesome! Never have I encountered so many amazing foods all in one place. It was almost overwhelming trying to decide what to eat. I had the opportunity to try a lot of delicious foods I’ve never had before as well as some classics.

  • Jibarito
  • Alligator Sausage
  • Lobster Mac & Cheese
  • Tomales
  • Catfish
  • Cookie Butter Cheesecake
  • Chocolate covered pineapples
  • and many more!

Here’s some Pics of my personal favs:

My personal favorite, the jibarito! A Puerto Rican steak sandwich made with fried plantains instead of a bun, lettuce, tomato, and garlic mayo. Didn’t know what it was before I ordered it, but was very happy with my choice.
