HELLO FOOD LOVERS

Yes, Chris and I did go on our SECOND fry tour. This time, we had the help of our good friends, Esther Onate and Lauren Nieves tag along with us. Little did we know with that extra help, we still would feel like we were in a food coma for the next day… BUT we had some great recommendations from some friends to help us guide and map out where we decided to go yesterday. As you know, Lauren and I live in the Logan Square area. So we mapped out our tour PERFECTLY and went around the Bucktown, Wicker Park, and Logan Square area. All places within less than 3 miles from each other!

SMALL CHEVAL

Location: 1732 N Milwaukee Ave, Chicago, IL 60647
Our very first stop on the fry tour! This place is known for selling only burgers, shakes, and fries. Some of the best food to start off and fill our tummies! One of the crispiest fries with the cutest outdoor patio to sit outside and and enjoy the evening with your friends and family.

FIVE GUYS

Location: 2140 N Clybourn Ave, Chicago, IL 60614
This fast food chain is also known for their burgers, shakes, and fries. We had ordered their cajun fries! Great place to soak up your stomach after a night out at the bars.

CAFE ROBEY

Cafe at The Robey hotel offering American fare for brunch & dinner, plus a cocktail lounge upstairs. The crispiest fries with a side of ketchup and garlic aioli. To top off the night, they end your meal with a shot of milk and mini cookies!

UMAMI BURGER

location: 1480 N Milwaukee Ave, Chicago, IL 60622
Lively chain outpost serving elevated burgers & sides plus creative cocktails in a sleek space. All different kinds of fries and sauces that can be ordered with your meal. As you can tell with these last set of pictures, we were slowly developing our food comas. We ordered the thin fries, and they were surprisingly delicious and SO crispy with the side of jalapeño ranch!
