Chicago Food That You Have To Eat

It’s nearly 1:00 a.m. and I really have no business being awake right now, yet here I am.

Since the darkness is upon us I have one thing on my mind right now and one thing only: nachos. I am a fan of the homemade nacho. Such a big fan. They were my go-to after school snack as a kid and they’re my go-to midnight snack as a bigger kid.

In thinking about nachos I realized there’s no better way to spend a midnight blog post than telling you about all of the food I’ve eaten lately. Doesn’t that sound riveting? Good! Let’s do it.

-Barbecue nachos from Smoke Daddy in Wicker. Nachos that require a fork are my happy place.

-More barbecue food from Green Street Smoked Meats. Beans = heaven.

This bad boy is called a Cemitas. It’s disgustingly big and should never be eaten by one person. Unless it’s me. Served at Cemitas Puebla in the West Loop.

Longman & Eagle in Logan Square breaks my heart it’s so good. I want to eat everything here at all times.

I don’t care if Ditkas is for tourists, I like their Bloodys! And I like Ditka!

Oysters from Parsons Chicken and Fish. The only downfall of Parsons is that I always feel like the most lame person there because it’s full of very cool hipsters who can just tell by looking at me that I’m trying way too hard.

Did someone say pho? Pho yea it’s pho from FUH in Lincoln Park. It’s a build your own pho bar and it’s as pho-ing awesome as it sounds.

And I saved the ugliest photo for last. Ugly photo but oh so beautiful Kimchi fries. After you have kimchi fries you can’t go back to normal fries. You just can’t. Thank you Del Seoul for always being wonderful.

Bookmark this page, when you come to Chicago you’re going to want to eat all of this food.

And now you know why I have to get up for Pilates in five hours… Woof. Is it the weekend yet? I’m so over this weekday crap.
