Yup, you read that right! This week we’re switching it up from our typical secret recipe to share two our That Girl Gick‘s favorite restaurants in Chicago with you! From burgers to seafood, cocktails & donuts this is one feature you won’t want to miss!
We met up with That Girl Gick for lunch at one of her favorite spots, The Kitchen. Typically, she dines there for brunch on a Sunday (top secret tip from Thida: there isn’t usually a wait for brunch on Sundays!). With several different menus to offer & a wide variety of cuisines The Kitchen is sure to please everyone.
Thida ordered the mussels & lamb burger which you can see pictured below. As for cocktails, Summer G&T is Thida’s go-to.
After a delicious meal it was off to Firecakes Donuts for some dessert. Thida, who must have something sweet after a meal, chose the donut ice cream sandwich. It was as delicious as it sounds! For those of you who live in NYC or LA, a donut ice cream sandwich is nothing new but for us Chicagoans, this was a huge deal.
Other places Thida loves in Chicago? Juno for sushi & Gyu-Kaku for Japenese BBQ. Favorite dish to make at home? Khao Man Gai, a Thai dish consisting of chicken & rice.
