Toni’s Tasty Tuesday~ Chicago Style

21 Feb

“When in Rome, do as the Romans do. When in Chicago, gobble up all the great food before you go back home,”

~ Toni Armenta Andrukaitis


Three little words…Maxwell Street Polish. Oh my, this was so good. I haven’t had one since last year, and it was worth the wait. A huge grilled polish sausage, almost crispy on the ends, smothered in grilled onions with a goodly squirt of yellow mustard. Portillo’s is one of the best places to get one, besides going down to Maxwell Street in the city.

I remember back when I was in college at UIC. (Just a few years ago…ha ha) The Maxwell Street food truck would park by the administration building, tempting us with the aroma of hot dogs, polish, and fresh greasy fries. Brings back memories. Good memories.

I’ve tried duplicating this cuisine back in Texas. Can’t be done. I guess I’ll have to keep visiting to get my Chicago food fix. Home and home cooking, well, food from home, just can’t beat it.
