7 Favorite Foods We Tried at the Taste of Chicago

By  |  1 Comment

Mmmmm, the Taste of Chicago.

We came.
We saw.
We ate.
We conquered and waddled home.

That pretty much sums up what Lisa and I did at the Taste of Chicago. When we were invited to attend we decided it was a perfect Saturday to do so.

Upon arriving we grabbed our media packet and mapped out our plan of attack – for which foods to taste. The provided list of tasting samples included a wide variety (and some interesting delicacies… rattlesnake and rabbit sausage?!) and so we set off to test our stomach capabilities. To recap our eats of the day:

#1. Pulled Pork BBQ sliders from Miller’s Pub

#2. Chicken & Cheese; Steak & Cheese Sandwich Mini from Gino’s Steaks (food truck)

#3. Belgian Fries from Bruges Brothers (food truck)

#4. Peach Cobbler and Lemon Sorbet from Caffe Gelato

#5. Baowich and Kimcheesey Rice Balls from Yum Dum (food truck)

#6. Creme Brulee; Birthday Cake Mini Cupcakes from Chicago Cupcake (food truck)

#7. Avocado Toast and Watermelon Gazpacho from Farmer’s Fridge
