I normally make it a point, during my travels, to eat food that a locale is known for and to try beers that I don't see in Hawaii stores. On this recent trip, I think I may have overdone it with the eating and drinking but, dang was it good!

A friend suggested I try Chicago deep dish pizza from Due's or Uno's and being that they were about a block apart, I decided that I would try both (and no, not consecutively for the same meal). I have to say that Pizzeria Due's deep dish pizza is delicious and as for Uno's? Well, they had long lines and the front desk help (on 3 different days) was rude. Oh well, I'll try it the next time I am in the neighborhood.

While walking around Millenium Park, I had a craving for Mexican food. I didn't see anything truly ethnic and opted to try Chipotle, a fast food Mexican restaurant. I definitely give it 2 thumbs up. If I could snap my fingers and replace all Taco Bell establishments with this restaurant, I would!

I also learned from talking to some of the locals that the Chicagodog was the thing to eat. I had the pleasure of trying 2 establishments. After a ghost tour, I tried Portillos and while I was visiting the Navy Pier, I sampled another dog from America's Dog. MMMMmmmmmmm... I did put ketchup on my dog, something I later learned was sacriligious but, don't tell anyone!




















The offending pizzeria!

















I was perusing the local Longs Drugs store and found a nifty microwave steamer for $10 - thought I'd buy it and try it out with some left over green beans and a slab of salmon. I dressed the 2 with a little salt, lemon, pepper, a BIT of butter, and some garlic. MMMMMmmmm..... That sure was the best $10 a spent in a while!
