I’ll be quick, cuz how much can one person truly write about salad?
No, that wasn’t a challenge! Sweetgreen has some of the best combination of salad, I’m especially fond of The Mexican elote, minus the tomatoes, and tortilla! Actually I add spicy broccoli, mozzarella and Chicken. Sweet Green can be hella expensive for a salad but its oh so good! So when I’ve had an especially rough day or an extremely good day, I treat myself with a salad. I know, corny but shit, when the Salad is over 15$ thats not something I’ll be eating on the regular.
Have you tried sweet green? If so, whats your go to blend?
So much food, EVERYWHERE.
After years of wanting to go, wishing I could go, trying to set my schedule so I could go, I’ve finally made it to Taste of Chicago and they didn’t disappoint! I know, I had to have read all about the ins and out of “The Taste” as it’s affectionately known but I really didn’t have any expectations as to the food variety. I was surprised with Mexican, African, Jamaican, more Mexican and of course Two different varieties of Pizza. Although I opted to stay away from The dough, the smell was delicious enough to change my mind.
Day One was HOT! I met up with my fly sister, Shakila, copped some food tickets, and took a survey of our selection. Did I say it was hot? Cuz it was. My confession of never having Harold’s led us straight there and OMG. Juicy, tender, flavorful chicken. And yes!, I got the mild sauce!
After some prime shots, because hello! The sun was giving us this Glow, it was time for sweets. The stifling heat called for funnel cakes with ice cream, Italian and Mexican iceys.
FYI Its called a Taste of Chicago because you can get a ‘taste’ of the food, ( a small but lightly filling portion) or a full portion. Genius!
Although I’ve been doing this for a while now, I think I’m going to make it a bit official. So I’m still working out the details in my own head as to what I would like it to be, for now, its “What we Eating.” By no means is that proper English, but I’m here to make words as fun as they can possibly be. So for the past few weeks, I take myself out on a date, sometimes I have friends who join me but for the most part It’s a solo date.
I have been staying in Manhattan for the past two weeks but I think It’s time I stop playing it so safe. So Today, I am heading to Queens! Can you guess what we’ll be eating? Hint Hint: This Culture takes pride in its food options, and they aren’t scared to experiment!
