As you know, this food blog is written from the perspective of a self-identified “vegetarian-pescatarian”. What is a vegetarian-pescatarian? Someone who eats fish and seafood, but no land meat like chicken, beef, pork, turkey, lamb, etc. Why would one willfully choose to eat like this? Well, let me tell you a little bit about my journey towards being a vegetarian-pescatarian…
Umami Burger is obviously a staple in Wicker Park for meat eaters. But now with their new “Impossible Burger” (their new vegetarian burger that tastes pretty much like a regular hamburger), it will be definitely frequented more by vegetarians. Prior to the debut of their “Impossible Burger”, I had never been to Umami Burger since I don’t eat meat. But I thought now is the time to try this place and I had only heard good things about it.
I explore ethical and affordable eating and drinking in Chicago. I provide an overall rating, a vegetarian/pescatarian rating, and an affordability rating.
Mana Food Bar is a staple for vegetarians and it has an assortment of unique and eclectic flavors. I love the fact that I can come here and be able to eat everything on the menu, I am not quarantined to a quarter of the menu options. It’s so nice to have all of these delicious options here.
With a name like Beatnik, I had very high expectations for this cocktail bar/restaurant that opened up recently in the West Town neighborhood. I am first of all happy to see a new restaurant open up in the West Town neighborhood because it definitely needs more options for restaurants.
Pub Royale is a true favorite of mine as someone who loves Indian food but enjoys their creative approach to it. They have amazing brunch and dinner and have delivered excellent food consistently.
We had an amazing, unique, and beautiful culinary experience here to celebrate a romantic, special occasion. I loved EVERYTHING about our experience here.
I was a bit weary of this place since I had heard mixed reviews from friends. Some people love it while others deeply dislike it. But I am on the “love this place” team.
