Although I love eating my liver nuggets, I decided to venture out on my organ meat excursion and try something new, beef heart. I’ve dabbled in chicken heart before at a restaurant, but never beef. After ordering it and seeing it in the actual package, it looked disgusting. So I shoved it in our freezer and ate the other proteins I fancied. However, once I bought more food to freeze, the big ole frozen beef heart stuck out like a sore thumb. I gathered my courage and let the heart thaw out….
Recommended by my foodie friend, Amanda Topper, I stopped into Brightwok after work a few weeks ago to see what the hype was all about. Walking through the loop and down the not-so-visited locations alongside Wabash Ave, I’ll admit, I was a little hesitant. However, when I left (with a huge bag of food in hand), I definitely didn’t expect to have experienced what I did.
