I'm visitting Chicago for the first time next week (from San Francisco). A former Chicago resident agrees with me that the San Francisco shawerma offerings are weak and claims that Chicago has options that are "way better". But sadly she can't offer any concrete suggestions.
I'm aiming to sample some of the Chicago shawerma offerings that are near to where I'll be, though I might have opportunity to venture out a little further for anything considered spectacular.
- I'll be staying at the Congress Plaza Hotel.
Address is 520 South Michigan Avenue.
Believe the neighborhood is considered "South Loop".
- Will be spending much of next Fri/Sat/Sun at The Hideout
for the Touch & Go Records 25th Anniversary Party. This is
at Wabansia & N. Elston. Neighborhood is shown as Bucktown /
Would much appreciate any shawerma recommendations in these areas!
