Chicago Food Quest

Hot dogs and deep-dish pizza, the only 2 things I had on my mind when I initially arrived in the Windy City. Little did I know that there is so much more to Chicago’s food scene than meets the eye! I tried capturing every mouth-watering moment on camera with the exception of a few crazy drunken nights of me stuffing my face with drenched Italian Beef sandwiches or consuming countless McDonald’s chicken nuggets. I did not eat out for every meal, but my weekends were indulgent. I asked the locals where to eat, yelped every neighborhood corner, and walked near and far in search for the best eats. Brace yourself for some serious food porn!
