The Fat Shallot: Fried Salami Sandwiches from an Everest Vet

Grilled salami sandwich from The Fat Shallot food truck

A synonym for Chicago’s nickname, “The City with Diabetes” “The Big Onion”, The Fat Shallot food truck's packing one of those coveted licenses to cook on board, allowing them to generate sandwich sustenance like this pretzel-bunned grilled salami with a fried egg, pickled red onions, and smoky BBQ sauce

There's a husband-wife catering duo running the truck; he's a seasoned chef with stops at Everest, The Pump Room, and a stint in New Orleans, which explains the Cajun kick in their pulled pork with Creole mustard remoulade and pickled jalapenos

Each of the truck's five sandwich options uses fresh bread from Labriola Bakery, for instance
