Life In Chicago

June 13, 2013 -- Hey everyone! Now that I have been living in Chicago for over a month, there is one thing that I canít deny about this amazing cityÖthe food is incredible! I have had the chance to try some amazing food spots both in the city and outside the city and I think it is only fair to share these food wonders with all of you. First, I have to say that I LOVE deep dish pizza. I had my first slice of deep dish when on my second day as a Chicago resident and absolutely loved it! My go to spot for a great slice of pizza is Giordanos. Nothing beats a slice of pepperoni stuffed pizza from Giordanos!

I also love good breakfast food! It took me a while to find a great breakfast spot but soon enough I found one that has some of the best breakfast food that I have ever had! My favorite breakfast place is Walker Brothers Original Pancake house. They have some of the most delicious omelets and a crunchy French toast that is ADDICTING! Anyone who visits Chicago has to make a stop at Walker Brothers!

Finally, thanks to my teammates, I was guided towards Portilloís. My teammates told me I had to try a chocolate milkshake from Portilloís and they didnít lie the milkshakes are delicious! I have really enjoyed my time in Chicago and have fallen in love with the city! The food is amazing but isnít anywhere near all that Chicago has to offer. Anyone who plans to visit Chicago you have to try these delicious food choices! And oh yea, donít forget to stop by the All State Arena to catch a Chicago Sky game.

Until next time,
