We added a whole heck of a lot of Chicago food blogs to our RSS feed this week, so today’s Blog Reviews roundup is stuffed to bursting. Know of a site we should be reading? Let us know.
• An eyebrow-raising review of Madame Tartine, wherein the reviewer dines with her French teacher and yet homophonically misspells “chic” like the Arab nobleman. Food gets the nod of approval, though. [NBC5 Street Team]
• Two takes on Mana Food Bar: Drive Thru likes it but thinks it’s pricey, Chicagoist pulls out all the stops and knocks it a rave: “just the kind of vegetarian restaurant Chicago needs,” and “the food rocks.” [Gapers Block, Chicagoist]
• Here’s a puzzler: Pizzeria Calzone serves pizza, but not calzones. [Sky Full of Bacon]
• Add this to the hangover cure file: hamburger aktagawa at
Hamburger King: chopped hamburger, eggs, green pepper, onions, bean sprouts, and our reviewer suggests adding mushrooms. We’re sold. [ChiBBQKing]
