Infatuation's EEEEEATSCON to make Chicago debut
A festival for food lovers who crave more than a nibble and cooking demos is coming to Chicago for the first time this month.
Zoom in: In addition to the familiar local spots, Austin and San Francisco restaurants are on the menu. So we asked some of our Axios Local colleagues what we should eat at EEEEEATSCON.
- "Cuantos' secret weapon might be the salsa roja, which carries a deep smokiness that punches up their already mouthwatering Mexico City-style tacos.
- "The Discada Taco will include a beef and pork blend, pickled habanero salsa, pineapple, onion and cilantro.
- "At Nixta Taqueria, James Beard emerging chef recipient Edgar Rico creates unique options like duck carnitas, beet 'tartare,' and cauliflower tacos on house-made corn tortillas."
The intrigue: The festival is offering an exclusive blend of all three restaurants' signature tacos, called The Mafia.
"Prubechu is a vibe. Get the Tinaktak, a noodle dish with beef and veggies," Axios San Francisco's Megan Rose Dickey says.
- "Also, leave plenty of room for the chamorro sweet rolls with tuba butter. You won't regret it."
Of note: New York City's 7th Street Burger will also be at EEEEEATSCON. The hot spot is regarded as one of the best smash burgers in NYC.
