food coma in chicago

enjoyed my first macaroon. strawberry masacarpone. delish from Pierrot Gourmet
shared dinner with Sara and Maya, at Big Star. this food was well worth the wait. pork and fried catfish tacos.
you bet we were waiting in line at 9:00 in the morning for a taste of these kernels. caramel pecan was my fav from Garrett Popcorn.
finished off the night with a Molly's Cupcakes. this place is super cute. i enjoyed the swing chairs.
strawberry shortcake for me please. gone in 30 seconds.
finished up our trip with a breakfast at Yolk. the fresh squeezed strawberry orange juice was fantastic.
i enjoyed some biscuits and gravy, while Sara enjoyed some amazing french toast.


  1. you two ate sooo good while in chicago!! my stomach is growling after looking through your photos

  2. Looks yummy!!! My girlfriends and I went to Garrett's too when we were in town for the popcorn. Delicious.

  3. Looks delicious! Those swinging chairs are so neat!

  4. Ugh, your photos make me want to go back! Pretty sure you have a photo of everything we put in our mouths except our sandwich-on-the-run, so good job :)

    P.S. I'm feeling pretty fab about the fact that a couple of those photos were taken by me... and you can hardly tell ;) ...right, who am I kidding?!

  5. Aren't macaroons amazing?! Love them.

  6. You have my mouth watering like no other right now!
    and I'm a sucker for french toast so that meal looks AMAZING (:
