I went to The Taste on Saturday with my family and boy was it insane. For those who don't live in Chicago or have never been: imagine a sea. A sea of sweaty disgusting people all eating and breathing and rubbing up against you with food in their mouths. But it can also be really fun and it's a good opportunity to try something new. My knockout favorite of the day was the cochinita pibil tacos from the Adobo Grill.
One major disappointment was a gelato stand that kept running out of cups. We seriously went there like 3 times and every time we got to the front of the line they ran out. It was getting to the point where we were all thoroughly tired and sweaty so I settled on a frozen chocolate dipped banana and everyone else got cheesecake. I ended up enjoying the banana more than I expected. It was almost creamy like ice cream and the chocolate was pliable enough that it stayed on for the duration of the eating without cracking off.
