While I was in Chicago, I went to several restaurants, but decided to only write about my favorites. First up: The Bongo Room! After looking at their menu online, I knew I had to check this place out. Amazing food, ya’ll!
Above is my Tomatillo Egg White Scramble: chicken, spinach, egg whites and tomatillo salsa! It was SO SO good. A little bit on the spicy side, but perfect with those fresh tomato slices and toast. My friend, Amy, got a Chorizo Potato Avocado Omlette with a side of these house potatoes. They were covered in dill, so I LOVED them. And pretty much ate them all off her plate. #mooch #dontevencare #friendsletfriendseatofftheirplates And here’s a look inside the omlette. It was basically an egg burrito filled with yummy goodness. We also got some pancakes. Take a gander at these babies!! Can you guess the flavor of these ones? White Chocolate & Caramel Pretzel Pancakes! I saw these on the menu and DIED even before I ordered them. And then one bite was all it took to fall in love!! They were dreamy. The white chocolate sauce with caramel made these for me. So good. And, because I have no will power, I also ordered these Red Velvet Hotcakes. Also dreamy. The sauces on both these pancakes MADE them. So good and really decadent.
Believe it or not, between my BFF and I, we only ate about 1/8 of each kind of pancakes. They were huge.
If you want to check out The Bongo Room, I’d highly recommend it. Especially the white chocolate & caramel pretzel pancakes. For sure.
