City bound with my favorite pastry friend

I decided to see what my college friend was up to this past Friday. Lucky me, she as well had the day off! So off to Chicago I went. We decided on Pork Shoppe and Molly's Cupcakes! If you ever are in the city of Chicago you need to make a stop at Pork Shoppe, it's small and quaint, but the second you walk in the door you are greeted by the amazing smell of barbeque. I of course ordered pulled chicken, yes at a pork place I got chicken :) which my friend later pointed out. She got pulled pork. We both ordered a side of mac n' cheese instead of fries, don't get me wrong I have a huge obsession and love for fries but this mac n' cheese is something you just can't pass up. It's like being in mac n' cheese heaven. Creamy, cheesy, piping hot and just the right amount of pepper and crunch to the top! We also shared a side of cornbread, which has to be the best cornbread I've had in my life. It's divine. It has a hint of heat from the jalepenos and sweetness at the same time, then you add the butter and it's 10x better. It adds just the right amount of salt. It's salty/sweet goodness all bundled up in a piece of cornbread!



The sides are pretty big portions, but when everything is soooo good it's really hard to stop yourself. That's what your friends are for ;) Pulled chicken sandwich was amazing as it was the first time. I'm not a huge barbeque fan but I could eat this sandwich everyday. It's moist, and has lots of flavor and served on a lightly toasted, buttered bun. I chose the spicy barbeque sauce for mine which is also amazing. The service is fast and friendly and the prices are just right! You have to make it a point to stop here next time you visit Chicago! You won't be disappointed ;)

I realize after eating I have no more room in my belly for tasty cupcakes! I can always have sweets after my meals but I was stuffed! I decided to buy many cupcakes and treat them to the ladies attending my wedding as a favor for helping with invitations. That will be saved for a later post ;)  Included is a link to Pork Shoppe Chicago. Hope you enjoy!
