Fooditor’s Mike Gebert reveals ‘One of the top 3 dishes in Chicago’

Mike Gebert, author of “The Fooditor 99: Where To Eat (And What To Eat There) in Chicago” jumps in the Mazda 3 to create audio food porn.

We visit Khan B.B.Q. (2401 W Devon Ave, Chicago, IL 60659) for chicken boti, which Mike says is one of the “top three dishes in Chicago” (he’s right). Khan B.B.Q. is an interesting space. I said,”Looks kind of like a bus stop.” Gebert adds, “With a chandelier… like a meeting room at Harrah’s Joliet.”

We talk at length about the Fooditor 99, covering restaurants like:
The Budlong
Red Hot Ranch
Hoosier Mama
Duck Inn
90 Miles

Mike’s an authority on food and Chicago restaurants, and I always enjoy chatting with him. Pick up his new book, and to get a taste (sorry) for the restaurants that move him, listen to this week’s show!
