Everyone knows that Chicago is all about food. This past year, I have found some new favorite places:
Yolk‘s strawberry orange juice!
If you love donuts, Firecakes is a must.
Make sure to go there when they are serving their ice cream donut sandwiches!
If you don’t like donuts, Insomnia Cookies is the next best option, especially if it’s a late night. You can build your own ice cream cookie sandwich.
Eataly has everything you would want to eat! The Neapolitan pizza is a great alternative to the famous deep dish.
This last place is probably my favorite find in Chicago. I’ve been looking for an authentic tapas bar since studying in Spain, and I finally found one: Café Iberico! They have tortilla espanola and paella!
They even have jamon Iberico and manchego cheese with tomato bread.
Or, you can try their goat cheese with pesto bread.
Even if these places do not sound appetizing, they are just a few examples of the tasty places you can find in Chicago. It is definitely impossible to pick a favorite place because they are all so different from each other. I cannot wait to return to Chicago next year and continue exploring all that it has to offer.
