Yesterday we went downtown Chicago for dinner, Freddie had made the reservation and the only thing I knew was the name of the restaurant and that we were eating a six course tasting menu. We rushed through the heavy traffic on the highway and just made it on time down to Chicago’s meat packing district, Fulton Market and iNG http://www.ingrestaurant.com.
I love this area where the meat trucks are lined up & down the empty street and all of a sudden you find very trendy restaurants and art galleries between the rundown buildings.
Like I said yesterday, I’ve chosen my moments very carefully when I am going to indulge yet I couldn’t help that my heart dropped a little bit when I saw pizza as the second course on the pre-set menu. When we got the first course I was very happy because it was Jonah crab and prawns in a fish sauce and absolutely delicious. As I’m eating I’m thinking in the back of my head “the damage is not too bad, right?!” and then the pizza arrived, it was mind blowing…
A low-carb and dairy-free Pizza!!!
…not to mention the dessert, (yes d-e-s-s-e-r-t) and in came in a little lemon tart heart! As it turns out the restaurant and the chef Homaro Cantu focuses on low glycemic food and they are using a magic berry powder. Not to sweeten the food but to change your taste buds so acidic foods like lemon and vinegar don’t taste sour anymore.
I have had the most amazing food experience ever and I’m still walking on clouds this morning. I couldn’t imagine eating at a more appropriate and interesting place where the food was right up my alley…
This is pure love, thank you Freddie!
