Second visit to Chicago Diner

Steak & eggz

On Monday, we just had to return to the Chicago Diner. This time, for a late lunch, there was no wait and since it was just before 3pm I decided to take advantage of the brunch menu. I had the "steak & eggz"-- a hunk of seitan, scrambled tofu, gravy, and potatoes. With a cinnamon roll for an appetizer and a mocha shake for dessert, it was quite a meal.

I took half the steak & eggz with me, and ate the leftovers for breakfast this morning. I also bought one of Chicago Diner's pre-packaged blueberry muffins for the plane.

Today's snacks for the plane:
  • Roasted pumpkin seeds-- From Sunday's pumpkin carving.

  • Blueberry muffin-- From Chicago Diner. Not gluten-free.

  • Carrot orange smoothie-- From Jamba Juice in the airport. Their fruit & veggie smoothies are great because they're not as sweet as the all-fruit ones.


  1. Oh my goodness, next time I visit The Diner I'll be ordering this - it looks amazing!
