It benefits Veggie U – the non-profit children’s education program that teaches the importance of nutrition and sustainable agriculture by providing interactive lesson plans w/ classroom garden kit to elementary schools and special needs students.

We’ll be there. Look for the aloha shirt.

See you there.

Oh. My. Gawd.

Do yourself a flavor and get yourself to this counter in Chicago.

Belly up to this counter

That’s right, this unassuming particle board adorned counter is the home of Belly Shack located at 1912 N. Western Ave in Chicago.

Tucked coozily beneath the EL stop, this little eatery is the diamond in the rough in the Chicago Bucktown skinny jeans / PBR drinking neighborhood.

Bong…bong…Doors closing.

Togarashi spiced fries with curry mayonnaise – $3

Togarashi spiced fries

These fries are just the right cut.

Yo Fat kid, with the basket of fries, continue being fat cause this is what fries are all about.

Belly Dog topped with egg noodles, pickled green papaya and togarashi spiced fries – $9

Belly Dog

This hot dog has everything to please your Aunt Margaret and your senses.

Meat: Perfectly cooked dog with just the right snap in the casing. Juicy and savory indeed (#TWSS).

Taste: Sweet from the papaya, spicy from the kim chee salsa, salty from the juicy dog (#TWSS).

Texture: crispy fried egg noodles that contrasts the slightly firm bun makes all the difference. This is the money shot that makes it so delicious. Texture bitches.

And the first bite will make you blow your load.

And when you pair the hot dog with the togarashi fries, the pairing is a match made in heaven. It’s no wonder why this favorite place has received a Michelin Bib Gourmand award two years in a row!

Thanks to our favorite foodies Hank and Yuki on the tip – This is definitely one of our new favorite Chicago places – you gotta go.

So break out your dolla-holla bills and tip your staff like it’s raining up in the hizz-ouse cause this restie is a new add as one of our favorite Chicago #munchamuncha locations.

Just another outstanding meal from Chef Kim and his staff at Belly Shack. Mahalos!

Keep up the Ko-Rican thang as we’ll definitely be back for more.

So we got a call from a California Casting Producer. Super nice gal and bonus…sounds hot too.

She asked if we knew about the BeatTheChefs competition with the cash prize. I said the only cash prize I needed was the $1 bills for the Friday night Champaign room…Make it rain MoFos!

I bet it’s tough in “nursing school” huh?
