Summer Chicago Trip: Little Goat and the Girl

Girl and the Goat and Little Goat are among my favorite restaurants in Chicago. GATG is fancier while LG is more diner-style, but both have presented some amazing dishes. I stopped by both restaurants for dinner and dessert as a final indulgence on my last night before heading back to Columbus.

First stop: Little Goat

Goat chili cheese fries. So good! It's gamey so it may not be for everyone, but I really like gamey dishes actually.

Fat Elvis waffles with banana, peanut butter-butter, and bacon maple syrup.  It's good, if you can't tell by the half-eaten pic. We dug in as soon as it landed on the table, and I forgot to take the pic at first because I was too busy fighting for a bite. I really dig the peanut butter-butter, which is pretty much peanut-infused butter. Really unique.

Springy shrimp and pork belly, with pea shoots, white asparagus, and springy noodles. The flavors in this weren't unique, but I really liked all the fresh ingredients. The pork belly pieces were succulent and the shrimp were so plump.

Moving on to Girl and the Goat...

Forest Gump bread with pea butter and carrot butter. I wasn't a huge fan but that might've been because I was too full at this point to enjoy bread. Also it tasted very... rustic is how I would describe it.

Miso-butterscotch budino with bacon toffee, glazed pineapples, and candied cashews. I ordered this dessert during my last visit too... ya it's that good.
