pulled bbq duck sandwich with duck fat fries at Sepia restaurant in Chicago, Illinois

The return of a carnivore.

Today I ate meat.

Today I ate meat.

And it was delicious.

I am usually a pretty easy going person and don’t like to make decisions. Meredith asked me last week if I wanted to get lunch this week and I said sure. She sent me a list of places she was thinking of and I said “that one.” She said she had a better looking schedule on Tuesday or Thursday. I said “Tuesday.”

Sometimes a desire to eat good meat after a month of eating a vegetarian diet trumps my wishy washy personality.

So we met at Sepia at 11:45 for a somewhat early lunch. But I didn’t care because it meant that I would be eating meat early in the day.

I ordered the pulled bbq duck sandwich. With duck fat fries.

And it was well worth the wait.

Hi, I'm Val. I spent most of my 20s in a standstill, unable to pick which path in life I wanted to take. I wanted the nomadic life of a traveler but also wanted the husband, the condo, and the kitten. Unable to decide which life I wanted more, I did nothing. When I turned 30 I’d had enough of putting my life on hold and decided to start “choosing my figs.” So, I quit my job, bought a one-way ticket to Europe, and traveled for three years. Now I'm back in Chicago, decorating my apartment in all the teal, petting my cats, and planning my next adventure.

    Ok, two questions. What did you think of the duck fat fries, and did you loose any weight from eating vegetarian for a month?

        That makes sense. Hot Doug’s duck fat fries were really skinny and they were definitely crispier than the regular fries. We were all anticipating a different taste rather than texture so we’ll have to try them again someday. I think I’ll try a place that does steak fries though. Congrats on accomplishing your goal!
