Seven interesting tastes for Chicago sellers in 2022

This year’s Taste of Chicago, which takes place in Grant Park this year from 11:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. on July 8-11, will be a “small-scale” version because restaurants struggle with staff shortages, its programmer told Block Club Chicago. (The Taste has also lowered fees for vendors to participate and destroyed its ticket system, allowing people to buy food directly from vendors.) Less sellers because of the limitations of your stomach.

While strong companies like Eli’s Cheesecake Company and BJ’s Market and Bakery are in Taste, there are also some lesser known and more unusual restaurants involved. Here are seven with some interesting concoctions. (We don’t actually know what each restaurant will have to offer, so not all of their dishes may be available there.)

This food cart serves Asian steamed dumplings and “bowwich” that feature proteins like braised pork belly or shelled shrimp in a fluffy bowl. The most unusual, however, are the kimchiese fried rice balls and sriracha-style grilled pecan brownie fudge for dessert.

Are burgers, burritos, or tamales coated in hot cheese dust? naturally. Shall we try it? Absolutely! It’s especially paired with refreshing agua fresca to cut the smoldering flavour.

With its fast-food-only location in River North, Lincoln Park has some foods that look perfect for an outdoor festival: French fries flavored with Indian spices, chicken wings fried in tamarind sauce, and shrimp marinated in ceviche. Papadum crackling.

What’s more suitable for a festival than fried food or barbecue? With locations in South Chicago, the West Loop, and Midway combining both, this Southern venue serves up fried ribs and pork chops, plus smoked brisket, bacon-wrapped shrimp, and more.

Another perfect summer outdoor food is, of course, sausage. Why not try something unusual like Obama’s Hawaiian dog with pineapple, bacon, and teriyaki sauce or the Midway Monster with Colby cheese, giardiniera, bacon and BBQ sauce – or sausage with unusual meats like alligator or rabbit and rattlesnake.

You usually have to go to Elk Grove Village or find the food truck to sample this Southern restaurant’s rich-sounding Mac ‘n’ cheese dishes topped with Philly cheesesteak, narcissus chicken, vegetables, and more.

It’s not often you encounter vegan Mexican food, but that’s what the Garfield Ridge spot has to offer: everything from gorditas to tamales to smoothies and tacos. Cranberry tamales with mushrooms and green mole tamales with asparagus and zucchini are especially attractive.
