belgian frites from Chicago’s French Market

It’s been a rough week. Actually, it’s been a rough month but I’ve been semi-sidelined by a bad cold this week on top of all the school work I’ve got. A mix-up today with my google calendar that resulted in being an hour late to a group meeting was just the icing on the (gluten-free) cake.

My university-issued CTA pass split in half recently but I’ve been putting off going and getting a new one because the office is out of my way. I finally went today and discovered that it’s very close to the French Market, a European-style indoor market with multiple produce vendors, a cheese and wine stall, a raw foods deli and more. It’s a little gimmicky but I’d never been before and wanted to check it out.

While there, I decided I needed a break and went for the Belgian frites with a side of truffle mayo. Delicious…but I couldn’t make it through the small on my own.

I like places like Frietkoten. They serve two things: frites with sauces and Belgian beers. That’s it. What more do you need? Now these are the frites I want with my moules frites….
