7 Chicago Comfort Foods That Feel Like an Edible Hug

Chicago Comfort Foods

It might be called “comfort food” for a reason, but you don’t need to have a bad day to justify ordering any of these! Check out these delicious dishes from around Chicago:

1. Braised Short Rib Sliders – Unite Urban Grill (Chicago Ave)

Short-Rib-SlidersNot one, not two, but THREE short rib sandwiches with carrot slaw and creamy horseradish. Even if they’re smaller, it’s like you have three

2. Loaded Tots – Four Shadows Tavern (Ashland Ave)

Loaded-Tots Tots + melted Monterrey Jack cheddar cheese + smoked bacon + green onions + sour cream = problem solved.

3. Greek Burger – Flagship Tavern & Grill (Belmont Ave)

Greek-Burger Lamb and beef, roasted eggplant, feta cheese, red onion, lettuce, tomato, cucumber yogurt sauce, and crispy okra.

4. APMD – Kuma’s Corner

APMD Grimly titled as the “All Pigs Must Die” sandwich, we’re looking at Sriracha aioli, 10 oz (!!!) of Applewood Smoked Bacon, Lettuce, and Tomato.

5. Fried Okra and Pickles – DMK Burger Bar

Fried-Okra-&-Pickles The only thing better than okra and pickles are fried okra and pickles paired with herb ranch.

6. Poutine – Duffy’s Tavern & Grille (Diversey Pkwy)

Poutine No need to go north to Canada for the ultimate in comfort food! Gravy, fries, and cheese set the stage for this classic.

7. Beer Battered Cod – Township

Beer-Battered-Cod Maybe because it’s fish? It’s healthier for you? And the beer is boiled off? When it’s battered? …Ok, maybe not. Maybe it’s just downright delicious.
