chicago is definitely a city for those who like to eat. it's as though there are delicious places to eat on every corner; more specifically, there are famous places to eat around every corner.
as we rushed to make our schedule chicago architecture tour, we passed the purple pig. why did that name sound so familiar? oh yeah. famous. and highly recommended. so, after the tour, we retraced our steps and nabbed seats at the bar, ready to enjoy some delicious dishes. and even though were were on the late side for lunch, there was still a long line of people waiting to be seated. as a result, the mood in the purple pig was lively, busy, and the place smelled delicious.
we opted to share some veggies and some pork (we were still on the "more pork please"-run after a year in pakistan. hahaha).
while sitting at the bar, we also got a glimpse of some of the other dishes being prepared. the burrata canoli and housemade meatballs in particular caught my attention. can't wait to go back to the purple pig!
