Chicago: Publican Quality Meats (Revisited Again)
After my final on Monday, there was really no way that I was going to be even remotely productive for the rest of the day. Even though I had another final coming up on Tuesday.
Instead, CK and I went to meet up with CK's boyfriend before our dinner reservations at Girl & the Goat. We had some time to kill, so since we were in the area, why not drop by PQM for some pre-dinner snacks?:
Yes. I went again. Yes, this is my third post on PQM. No shame, remember?
Our pre-dinner snack turned out to be the cold charcuterie spread ($19):
Five different kinds of meat, all prepared in new, innovative ways. I wish I'd paid more attention when we were walked through each one, but alas, it's all a blur. There was a duck with jam, a turkey with foie gras, a pork belly, some kind of meat spread with gochujang (Korean chili paste), and one other topped with a crunchy salad.
Fail, I know. But believe me when I say that everything was ridiculously delicious.
CK was really curious about the head cheeses and we sampled two kinds before deciding on the one that tasted like salsa:
The cilantro in it really gave it a refreshing burst of flavor. I don't remember what it's called, but ask for the head cheese that tastes like salsa!
I can't get over how much I love PQM. I know you're all tired of me gushing over it, so I'll try to refrain from writing any additional posts on it. Three is enough.
Unless I try something else there that blows my mind. No promises.
