Mini Summary: Chicago’s Worldly Tastes’ sixth five countries

With 30 countries down, I’m just about as close to a third complete as I can get.  I believe I started out finding 89 countries’ worth of food to visit, and through friends and an opening or two I’m up to 92.  The number could definitely change as we go, but it just shows how... Read more »

Mini Summary: Chicago’s Worldly Tastes’ fifth five countries

Fifth five!  Five squared!  Restaurant Bowl XXV! A shift happened during this time, and I’ll touch on it more in a bit, but I’m glad to keep this going even if at a slowed pace.  Not only did I hit 25 countries but I also surpassed 100 posts.  Happy to see that I’ve stuck with... Read more »

Mini Summary: Chicago’s Worldly Tastes’ fourth five countries

Fourth five!  Twenty down.  Good times for sure. I’ve probably leaned on going to some of the lesser-known cuisines early on, which means a few cuisines that are generally ethnic staples (Indian, Mexican, Thai, French (sorta)) have yet to show up.  I guess I’ve already hit a couple of staples (Chinese, Italian) and I’ll try...

Mini Summary: Chicago’s Worldly Tastes’ third five countries

Well.  “Third five” sounds a little weird to me, but I’ll just have to own it from here on out.  “Fifth five” will probably sound the dumbest, won’t it.  But you know what I mean. I don’t know if it’s the Chicago winter, just general levels of being busy, or simply the inevitable, but I’ve... Read more »

Mini Summary: Chicago’s Worldly Tastes’ second five countries

All right all right!  Ten down!  CWT (yep, we’re to the point where I’ve acronym’ed it) has kept things going and a couple of friends and Meredith have helped lead the way.  I’m continuing to try to spread the regions as I go, so hopefully you’ll see a diverse list along the way as I...

Mini Summary: Chicago's Worldly Tastes' first five countries

Happy Independence Day! Today really isn’t a time to try out a new cuisine from another country — today is a day to eat some ‘MERICAN food!  So while you should of course continue reading, fill up on some hot dogs, barbecue, and ice cream today, and celebrate this country. In the meantime, I’m going... Read more »

    Matt Mosconi

    Born and raised in Libertyville, IL, I didn't spend enough time in Chicago as a kid. After moving back here from Cincinnati in 2011, I'm doing my best to make up for that lost time now. I'm constantly curious and love to chat and learn. Variety is the spice of life. Give me a comment, question, or criticism and I'll do my best to help turn it into some thought-provoking conversation.
