Chicago is famous for its food – not only as a gourmet-dining epicenter, but also as the home of several local specialties. For an authentic experience, get a taste of these culinary staples with my personal Chicago favourites from pizzas, hot dogs and fusion style food that includes my encounter with my true blue Indian cuisine as well. Here’s a few that must not be missed out when in the windy city.
1. Deep Dish Pizza
A hallmark caramelized cheese crust that’ll make you think twice about how you want to tackle each colossal slice: crust first, or save the best part for last?
This is not meant for the faint hearted because this pizza is not about delicacy.
Baked in a deep, round pan filled to the brim with cheese and topped with a thick layer of tomato sauce, the result is a piping hot, gooey piece of pizza on a buttery, flaky crust.
