Spring Break Chicago: Four Belly

Takoyaki are fried octopus balls that are a common Japanese street food snack. They're relatively rare to come across, and while I've tried them twice before, the craving for more always comes back. I convinced our group to stop by for a quick meal at Four Belly during our trip since it's one of the few restaurants that carries this stuff. They carry a wide assortment of Asian street food (including fried catepillars if you're feeling adventurous...I wasn't) and it's all pretty yums. The restaurant was pretty empty when we went, which is a shame because I believe they deserve more business.

 The takoyaki that I've been craving for years really hit the spot

Skewers: octopus, yakitori, and beef rib eye. The octopus was my favorite, but the meat ones were still flavorful and tender.

Korean corn ice cream with unsweetened condensed milk and lychee gelee, crazy good. I ordered this on a whim since it's hard for me to skip an interesting-sounding dessert and I'm so glad that I tried it. After getting back, I made a batch of sweet corn ice cream and it's crazy addictive.
