Tortas Frontera at Chicago O'Hare Airport

Tortilla Soup and Guacamole Bar

Yipee! Rick Bayless has opened up a couple of shops in post-security O'Hare, and with three hours until our next flight, it was a no brainer to head over to his shop near gate B11 in Terminal 1. While the venue itself was pretty cramped (esp with everyone schlepping luggage around), the food was delicious and totally worth the journey through that long tunnel from the C gates.

Ironically, I didn't even get any of the sandwiches that the place is named after, but instead I went for both of his spicy and hearty soups as well as guacamole and salad. Man, I like this guy's food so much that I'd actually consider moving to Chicago if that meant having easier access. In the meanwhile, I guess I'll have to try to make sure that my itineraries route through O'Hare. And maybe head up to his shop at Macy's in San Francisco.

My first introduction to Chef Rick Bayless was through Top Chef Masters. The second is through your post. I'm hoping that the third encounter will yield a proper sit-down-and-order that whatever spicy soup and guacamole you had. I'm envious.
