'Lou Malnati's' on Serious Eats
When visiting a new city, I feel like I'm always caught in the that strange middle ground of wanting to sample the iconic local food specialties, while simultaneously avoiding the kind of restaurants that prey on my naivety and take all my money. These are the places that that offer an unmistakable glimpse at Chicago, while also dishing out great food.
With the holiday season now in full swing, we've put together a little collection of some of our favorite products from the Windy City, including a collection of food, t-shirts, cookbooks, and other products that we'd enjoy receiving in the mail (hint, hint). So, whether you currently reside in the city or live far away and want a little taste of home, check it out and let us know what you think.
If you know anyone who thinks deep dish pizza is not delicious, a simple trip to Lou Malnati's is all you need to show them the error of their ways. Malnati's well-balanced mountains of flavor are simply outstanding.
