makan updates from chicago
Wednesday afternoon, we went out on a cab to Gino's for its deep dish pizzas. We ordered a small 4-slice pizza and we were shocked at how much in terms of volume it was.

Each slice had a lot of chewy cheese, and a lot of tomato sauce, pepperoni and mushrooms. The serving was generious indeed!

It was definitely the best pizza i ever had. We actually couldn't even finish the 4 slices at the restaurant. We boxed up one slice and i had that this morning as breakfast!


Went out on a short walk with David Perry, Larry Bridwell, Rob Rosenberger and Sunil Shrestha to a local hot-dog stand called Hot Diggity Dog. David said that it was highly recommended, and indeed it looks like a hole-in-the-wall kind of place where locals would hang out in. Great recommendation!


We found a chinese makan place called 65 cents. The food is definitely not at that price though. I tried the fried beef rice and it was pretty okay. They even have Singaporean Fried Noodles on their menu too!

House of Blues - we sneaked out to go to the House of Blues for our dinner. The service was pretty bad, which made the experience of listening to the live blues performance dour.
