Another Great Restaurant

On Wednesday I had some family business in Chicago, and on the advice of Andrea went to The Chicago Diner for lunch.  Its slogan is "Meat-free since ’83," and everything on the menu is vegetarian; almost everything is vegan.  

The menu was overwhelming, and even though all of the main dishes looked delicious, we went with sandwiches.  Mine (foreground) was a Reuben made with seitan, accompanied by chili; his was something called the "swarma," which included harisa and sauteed cauliflower, with sweet potato fries on the side.  Even this was too much food!

However, we ate it all….. and were left overly full for the rest of the day.  Lucky for us, it was a beautiful day in  Chicago (as opposed to the cold, rainy weather we’re having day after day here), and we went for a walk along the lakefront.  By evening we were at O’Hare airport, where K finally arrived from Hong Kong, over 14 months since leaving home.  Yay!
