Shake Shack debuted a new chicken sandwich in January and the people of Chicago gave the Chick'n Shake two thumbs up! Who can say no to crispy fried chicken with pickles and buttermilk herb mayo on a potato roll?
Chicago native Jeff Mauro, the Sandwich King, recently opened Pork & Mindy's in Bucktown and hungry Chicagoans have come out in droves! With a focus on slow-smoked sandwiches, we're sure this won't be the last time we see P&M's in our monthly round-up. This is the Chuck - hand pulled chuck roast with a whole bunch of toppings!
Up next and continuing our run on sandwiches, Fatso's Last Stand makes their first appearance in our monthly list with the Double Fatso Smash. This Ukrainian Village stalwart drops a double-patty cheese bomb and you can't help but drool.
Lockdown Bar & Grill sits in a burgeoning epicenter of food along Western Ave in Humboldt Park. Their burger of the month series has drawn locals to this prison themed spot for years. January brought us the Capital Offense burger with smoked bacon, foie gras mayo and a fried egg. Did you miss the side of mac n' cheese? Guilty as charged...
Residents of Logan Square have known all about The Boiler Room and their commitment to decadently topped slices of thin crust pizza, washed down with an epic abundance of Jameson. Based on your votes, it looks like the secret is out!
And here it is, our top Instagram photo of January! RPM Italian delivers a photo-friendly, like-inducing plate of pasta, pancetta and egg yolk.
