Ji went in search of the perfect BLT sandwich. What she found was two restaurants that make the classic sandwich with a delicious twist.
First, she went to a restaurant in the Humboldt Park neighborhood that named their BLT after the neighborhood. It's called the "HMBLT" and the "HM" stands for herring mayonnaise.
The second was started by a husband and wife duo that opened a food truck in 2013 and recently opened a brick and mortar spot inside Revival Food Hall in Chicago's Loop neighborhood. It's called, Fat Shallot and they serve up classic sandwiches made to order around the Chicago area.
