Chicago Chow: Silver Palm’s

Eating Out

Continuing on my Chicago eat-stravaganza, my next stop was Silver Palm’s.  I was here for one thing and one thing only – the three little piggy sandwich.  Just take a look at that monstrosity! (And I mean that in the best possible way).  Intrigued?  So was I…

The three little piggy sandwich is not for the faint of heart – featuring the 3 piggy trio of double smoked ham, pork tenderloin, and bacon – this study in porcine goodness is smothered with gruyere cheese.  Oh, you want more?  Throw a fried egg on the whole shindig!  This sandwich is a two-handed, three-napkin meal.  Just as a frame of reference, five people (including three big guys) shared 2 sandwiches.

Such a complex sandwich could be overwhelming, but Silver Palm’s does a great job of balancing this creation so you are *almost* pushed over the top but instead linger right in that happy state of comfortably full.  Combine that with the old rail car decor, and you’ve got yourself a winner.  If you’re in town, grab an eating buddy and check out Silver Palm’s!

Pork, pork and more pork. And cheese. And egg. It’s good.

    OMG, H and I had to visit Silver Palm after Anthony Bourdain did his No Reservations: Chicago show. But we had an unfortunate visit: the fried chicken we ordered was beautifully golden brown on the outside and completely raw on the inside. It was kind of insane how undercooked it was! They were very apologetic though, which was nice.

    I'm a firm believer that you can never have too much pork in a recipe. This looks like a winner. Thanks.
