Last night my mom & dad came to Oak Park for a mid-week double date. We decided on
Duckfat FatDuck (who knew they changed their name?) for dinner because it’s close to our condo, they have a lively outdoor patio, and we always enjoy their food.
Cheers! I ordered their blackened Tilapia sandwich and got an order of the famous FatDuck fries for all of us to share. Did you know that duck fat is a healthy alternative to butter (because it is lower in saturated fat)?
FatDuck is the perfect place for an outdoor dinner – complete with a tiki bar!
Although we were pretty full from dinner, the The Brown Cow is just across the street and it was calling our name.
The Brown Cow is a quaint, old fashioned ice cream parlor with the best ice cream in town. They have funky decor, friendly workers, and it’s always packed.
I recently heard Dr. Oz talk about the health benefits of green tea ice cream so I gave it a shot. I really liked the flavor, but the taste was pretty strong so a little went a long way (that’s probably the good thing about it!).
Notice their crazy menu item?
The 7 pound trough seems a little over-the-top. 🙂
Thanks, Mom & Dad, for a fun double date!
