Don't worry, I'm not going to become a "food blogger", but eating is definitely a big part of my life. I love food...always have, always will. I hate to cook (so don't be looking forward to any great recipes anytime soon), but I love to eat at restaurants and find new tasty places. Therefore, I figured I would share some of my food adventures!
On my last visit to Chicago I knew I had to find some great pizza. I had previously eaten at one of the favorite Chicago pizza joints, Gino's East. It was delicious, but I wanted to see if any other restaurants could compare. I had seen recommendations for Giordano's and luckily it was fairly close to my hotel, so off I went to try it out.
I was happy to find out that there was a lunch special, which consisted of a personal-sized pizza and a drink. The pizza options were cheese, pepperoni, sausage, or spinach. I'm a pepperoni lover, so that's what I chose. Normally these are ready within 15 minutes, but since I got there toward the end of lunchtime the waitress advised me it would be 30 minutes. It was nice that she gave me a realistic waiting time and I was willing to stick around.
It was worth the wait. My pizza came to the table fresh out of the oven and I couldn't wait to take a bite! It does look small when you see it sitting in front of you, but don't be fooled...this little pizza is packed full of cheese and pepperoni. The deep dish crust is the perfect mix of buttery and flaky. It was definitely enough for one person and I even ended up taking half of it back to the hotel with me!
Was Giordano's better than Gino's? That's a hard one. They are both delicious and pretty similar, but I think I do like Giordano's a little better, mostly because of the crust. I guess I will just have to take another trip to Chicago to try them out again!
I just registered for an account on Yelp, so I can start checking-in to restaurants and leaving reviews. My Yelp page is jennywinward.yelp.com, so if you use it I would love to have you add me as a friend...Hope to see you there!
P.S. Where was the best pizza you've ever eaten?
