Kuma's Corner @ Chicago

In search of the perfect burger, we ventured out of downtown Chicago to the acclaimed Kuma's Corner. What's so great about eating away from downtown is that there is free parking! Sure, this area does not boast of breathtaking architectural attractions, but one sometimes must make sacrifices for good food!
I had read that the restaurant is pretty busy even on a weekday, so we arrived promptly after the restaurant started service. Sure enough, the tables filled up fast, but we were lucky enough not to have to wait. The grungy rock decor matched perfectly with the grungy rock music that blasted in the background. It was a departure from what I'm accustomed to, but I always welcome new dining experiences.
Having been warned of gigantic portions, we could only afford to order two items between the three of us. First up is the Mac & Cheese. We get to pick 2 toppings, so we chose onions and bacon. Generic, perhaps, but guaranteed to be a good combination! I don't think this picture does justice to how big the portion was, because we had to pack half of it home (to the hotel)! But indeed, it was delicious! Perfectly cheesy, just the way I love it!
Finally, we got what we came for: the burger! We chose the Neurosis Burger, with Cheddar, Swiss, Sautéed Mushrooms, Caramelized Onions, Horseradish Mayo. In other words, heaven piled onto a burger bun, accompanied by waffled fries that I've never had before. I was extremely excited for this burger, and it did not disappoint! Juicy and well-seasoned, this monster burger was definitely a burger-lover's dream come true! I do have a tinge of regret for not trying the Kuma burger, but overall I was quite happy with my choice. The accompanying waffled fries were also a novelty that I enjoyed a lot, particularly with the creamy mac & cheese!
The burger was so big that it was impossible to cut it up and share. We ended up just taking a bite and then passing it around. Despite my best efforts to take a big bite, I could only make a dent.
It was an unforgettable meal, probably one of my favourites in Chicago! We managed to devour the burger and fries, but sadly could not conquer the mac & cheese. I really hope I will have the chance one day to go back and try another of their amazing burgers!
