Original Gino's East, North America by Kit Kat

On our third and final day in Chicago my sister and I packed in as much as we could to the point of utter exhaustion. We were taken on a tour of this architecturally marvellous city and had worked up a monstrous appetite. Before we embarked on our journey across the States, a work colleague of mine told me that I must try Chicago’s original deep dish pizzas. And so we did.

While we were waiting for this legendary Gino’s East deep dish pizza we were given some garlic bread sticks and some tomato dipping sauce. This was beautiful and it took the edge off my insatiable hunger. Did I mention that these work-of-art pizzas take 45 minutes to cook to perfection?

We took this time to reminisce over our trip which was more than half over already; we had previously travelled to LA, Vegas, the Grand Canyon, San Francisco presently in Chicago and were looking forward to our imminent travel destinations being Toronto and New York. Before too long, our waiter Jimmy arrived with our deep dish pizza, cut up a slice, held the slice up and posed for my camera. We ordered a small pizza which was half Gino’s East Supreme and half “Cheese and our famous sausage” (this sausage is locally made). It’s been a month since my sister and I sat down in this urban gem enjoying every bite and the very thought of this pizza right now makes my mouth water, pining for that experience again. It was the perfect combination of two of my favourite culinary delights; pizza and pie. It was definitely well worth the wait.

If you’re not inclined towards deep dish pizza, Gino’s East does serve up thin crust pizzas which looked and smelled just as appetizing as the deep dish pizza as well as a variety of pastas.

In summary, if you’re in Chicago, don’t pass up the opportunity to try Gino’s East of Chicago pizza.
