Chicago is well known for its decadent pizza, known as the “deep dish pizza” that everyone loves. Who doesn’t enjoy biting into a very loaded and big pizza in a bowl of crust? That sounds absolutely delicious! Don’t forget the hot dog whose name is after the city! It is topped with the most unique toppings, something like you would find in a burger, not a hotdog. It is surely an experience everyone should try at least once, it is famous and popular around the world. Why not give it a try to talk about with your friends. If you’re still hungry for more interesting foods, visit a local restaurant and order the Italian beef that is actually a sandwich! It’s served fresh and steaming with other similar interesting toppings, again, something you wouldn’t have thought about that would go with your dish. It is cooked in a very different way than normal, and it is sure to have you coming back for more!
