This whole not having a kitchen thing is kinda torture. I was browsing through Pinterest but what good is pinning recipes if you can’t make them anytime soon? I’ll stop whining eventually, thanks for listening.
Anyway, last weekend the Mr. and I went to Chicago with two of our favorite couples. We ate some really good food that deserves to be talked about.
First we went to DMK Burger Bar which has been featured on Diners Drive-Ins and Dives (love that show). I got the most boring burger ever (plain with lettuce, tomato, pickle & ketchup) but it is up there as one of the best burgers I have ever eaten. The bun, which was fresh baked, had a lot to do with it. Or maybe it was the grass-fed beef. Mr. got the Holy Guac-aioli, which he raved about, and we split the sea salt & black pepper fries with house ketchup. So good. Once our waitress realized we were out-of-towners, she sent over a complimentary mac & cheese that I am craving right now. I love mac & cheese with topping & this one had a parmesan crust. I forgot to take a pic of it since I was too busy eating it.
The next few restaurants we went to are chains that we don’t have in Michigan (Cheesecake Factory & Bubba Gump Shrimp Co.) but aren’t anything exciting so I won’t talk about them.
On our way home, we stopped at Chicago’s Home of Chicken & Waffles. There is a Detroit chicken & waffles that I hold in very high regards so I was scared to be disappointed. I ordered The Rosemary which is an omelette filled with diced chicken & cheddar cheese with a waffle on the side. The waffles seemed to have brown sugar & cinnamon right in the batter. I was sad I was full after finishing half the waffle and half the omelette.
If you’re going to be in Chicago, I definitely recommend both places.
What’s your favorite place to eat in Chicago?
