Windy City again, this time was more like Frozen City, and finally I got to Silver Palm, I tried to go a couple times before but the place was closed. I’ve been wanting to go since I watched Anthony Bourdain No Reservation episode “
” in order to try the Three Little Pig sandwich, and as Tony said there is evil in the best possible way. Chicago
The place is a proper restaurant car (railroad passenger car that serves food). The sandwich was created by one of the waiters on a slow night, and is a pork three way, smoked ham, breaded pork tenderloin, bacon, fied eggs, and gruyere cheese. If there is a recipe for an atomic bomb this will be quite similar.
I got to the place order the C&ORR Warm Goat Cheese and the sandwich that in contrast to its name is huge. Unbelievable, excellent sandwich, one of the best I have had, please don’t waste your energy in anything else there and focus on that tasty monster.
The three little pig
Huge might not be big enough
A pig reminds me the Seinfeld episode “The Bris” where Kramer saw a pig-man in the hospital.
Kramer: The pig-man! I saw a pig-man! He was just lying there and then he woke up. He looked up at me and made this horrible sound.
George: Kramer, what the hell are you talking about?
Kramer: I'm talking about the pigman, George. I went into the wrong room and there he was.
George: A pigman?
Kramer: Yes, a pigman. Half pig, half man.Elaine: That's nice, Kramer...
