The South Side of Chicago..... Mon, 05/3/10 10:16 PM (permalink)
The baddest part of town
And if you go down there, you better just beware
Of a sandwich named "The Mother-in-Law!!

 
I was watching a new "Best Of" program on TLC, narrated by John Goodman.  Tonight was their Top 10 sandwiches.  One of the winners was a Mother-in-Law sandwich from Johnny O's in Chicago.  The sandwich consisted of a tamale on a hot dog roll, smothered in chili and topped with tomato, onion and sport peppers.  Never heard of it before.   Anybody ever have one?

    I think Bordain had one on a show from Chicago. Kind of thing I would try only if I had a Tums ready for dessert.

            Being born and raised in the Back of the Yards neighborhood, these are something I remember fondly, and they were delicious.  There used to be a restaurant on 46th and Ashland called "Coney Island"  that did them very well.

            And the tamale of choice was always "Tom Tom"  which is still made in Chicago.
