Chewing the Fat survived the Polar Vortex! Now Monica and Louisa go on their favorite getaways, on a plate. Hey, we’re on public radio budgets! It’s our Season One finale so we’re taking a mini vacation. But before we go, we’ll transport you to summer at a Mexico City market taco stand, via tacos al pastor in Chicago. And time travel fortified with hot chocolate and cinnamon streusel coffeecake, through a historic hotel lobby. Louisa makes Monica a vintage Korean recipe called Army Base Stew — Will She Eat It? Plus, Jim DeRogatis and Greg Kot from Sound Opinions drop by to share some favorite diners, and talk about the best places to find some grub after a night of live music. And, pop quiz: Food words you might be pronouncing wrong. All that and much more! (Tacos al pastor at El Chapin Carniceria y Taqueria in Chicago/Louisa Chu—Flickr)
