The Bongo Room [Chicago]

Have been trying to finish my Chicago post from April, I have been so lazy. For our last day in Chicago, we decided to head a bit north out of the downtown core (The Loop & The Magnificent Mile) and we decided on The Bongo Room for brunch.

Fat Tire Beer & Bloody Mary
You must know by now that I am huge fan of Caesar but I somehow don't like Bloody Mary at all and no matter how much vodka is in it.... it just lack the flavors and texture compare to the Canadian Cocktail.

White Chocolate Pretzel Pancake
This was huge, I can barely finish 1 out of the 3 pieces and this was definitely a sweet indulgence. Even with Ben's help, we can barely finish 2 of them, love the thick layer of white chocolate and caramel, plus there's a fare amount of pretzels bits mixed into the pancake batter itself which give it a very interesting texture on top of the thick fluffiness.

Butternut Squash Tenderloin Omelet
It is what it is, nothing special with a not so great presentation but it satisfied the simple breakfast/brunch craving.

Verdict :
They have 3 locations and if you do decide to try it out, the pancake is definitely a must try
