Chicago is a great place to eat and get fat. There’s great food everywhere. Pizza, hot dogs, pasta – but not Turkey Sandwiches. At least not at Uncommon Ground in Wrigleyville.
Let me be clear: I never force myself to eat Turkey Sandwiches. A lot of people try because just about everyone wants to eat a TS with me, but I never force it. On this particular Sunday Morning, I was in the mood for some comfort food, and for me that comes in the form of a nice Turkey Sandwich.
But there were a few warning signs when I ordered:
- There was only one Turkey Sandwich option on the menu
- It had Arugula on it
- It also had fig puree on it
I let them put the fig puree on it, but I went sans Arugula. The sandwich was an absolute trainwreck nonetheless. I’m no “Johnny Come Lately” when it comes to Turkey Sandwiches, so I think I have every right to say that FIG PUREE has no business being in the same kitchen as a Turkey Sandwich.
The sweet potato fries were good, but I’ll be getting my Turkey Sandwich fix somewhere else next time I’m in Chicago.
Oh, and this Turkey Sandwich isn’t the only thing that sucks in Chicago. The Cubs blow too.
