Liz’s Birthday, 2022

For Liz’s birthday this year, we headed back to a favorite spot: Giant, in Logan Square.

It’s been nearly 5 years since we were there. And the last two birthdays for Liz have been at-home celebrations, due to Covid. So we were looking forward to being out in the world again, albeit a little nervous and hesitant about it all.

For an appetizer, we had the Trout Roe. It was similar to the Super Uni Shooter from our last visit, and had an incredible mixture of taste and textures.

Broccoli with cheapeas, honey, and mint.

My lovely dinner companion.

Carrots with fish sauce caramel.

Tri-Tip Steak with glutinous rice and cucumber.

Garganelli with salt pork ragu and ricotta salata.

Might O’s with almond, pancetta, and tarragon.

Back home, celebrating with a few birthday gifts. Of late, Liz has gotten into whisky from India – and Paul John in particular.

I got her a few bottles of Càrn Mòr, along with Paul John’s Mithuna. We had a nice tasting session back home, after dinner.
