Tastes of the Taste

July 5, 2011

This weekend I went to the Taste of Chicago for the first time. It’s one of those things that everyone says you have to do once…and then, you never feel the need to go back again! So, this weekend, I decided was my one time at the Taste.

And it was great! And crowded. And hot. But great!

I started round 1 with a taste portion of mac and cheese bites from Cubby Bear. (Note: a taste portion just means small.) Round 2 consisted of stuffed sausage pizza from Bacino’s. Delish! Round 3 was a beignet from a restaurant that I can’t quite recall its name. Oops. And round 4 – a little out of order because it probably should have come before the beignet – was chips and guacamole from another restaurant that also doesn’t have a name in my mind.

This is what I liked about the Taste. I can’t think of any other place where I could have the “tastes” of the city and actually get tastes of the world. From Italian to Mexican to French to American, we have it all in Chicago. And it’s all delicious!
