Eating our way through Chicago
My favorite meal was da pork chop I had at Mike Ditka's place near the Hancock building! A grilled pork chop (about two inches thick!), sweet potatoes with a cherry sauce....talk about delicious! I also had spinach and mushrooms. This is one of those meals that you think about long after it is gone! Loved all the sports memorabilia on the walls at Ditkas as well as Harry Carey's where we ate Sunday night.
Wollensky's was very pretty but very pricey also! I had chicken there while Jim had a fantastic steak.
greek restaurant. I had never had greek food, so I got a combination plate to try different things. The lamb was my favorite and I really liked a spread for bread they made with greek yogurt, onions, garlic and cucumber.
I think the foods we try when traveling are as much of the memories as the sights we see, so I always have a point and shoot in my purse to snap a photo. Makes my mouth water to look at these! Did not have a Chicago hot dog this trip, but I did have samples of other foods at the Market that was being held in Daley Plaza on Thursday.
