portillo's: junk food bonanza continues...

i am extremely glad that the day is over. the preso to the exec team is done and it wasn't a complete disaster. i suppose that was all i could really hope for. once the presentation was complete, we wanted to celebrate and well ... we also just wanted to be decadent and very very bad.. as a result, we decided to continue our junk food bonanza by going to portillo's. yes, this is another fast-food chain that we do not have in the sf bay area. a lot of the chicago office folks come here to grab hot dogs for lunch. chicago is pretty well known for a specific kind of hot dog.....and of course, i ordered one.



chicago hot dogs are unique. the hot dog is nestled in a poppy seed bun and then it is topped with mustard, relish, pickled "sport" peppers, tomatoes, onion, and a long piece of a kosher pickle. now, i know this is junk food...but it is sooo good. i was pretty full after eating the hot dog, onion rings..and well...a chocolate malt.

however, i did take a piece of the infamous portillo's chocolate cake to go...

i figured that the cake would be a fitting end to my decadent junk food bonanza. i'm actually eating the cake right now ....while watching the food network. oh the gluttony...
