Egg Shack

eggshack calumet city il 127th st 3rdarm

Eggshack is found right off the highway on the stretch of 127th St called Obama Drive. Back in 2010 it was the first street in the country to be named after President Obama. I found the shack thanks to Chef Moyo at Frontera Grill. According to my chef the shack has the best ham on the bone in Chicagoland.

I take his wisdom to heart- Etta and I went to the far South Side. The eggs were perfectly cooked, potatoes crispy on the outside, and chef was right. The ham on the bone was worth the trip- meaty but tender and full of hammy flavor. Best I have had. The ladies who work there are great too.

  1. The body is mortal, but the person dwelling in the body is immortal and immeasurable.
    – Bhagavad Gita

    When I say that this body is not me, I am not making an intellectual statement. It is an experiential statement. If you were to ask me, “Who is this body?” I would make an awful pun: “This is my buddy. I give him good food and good exercise, and I look after him very well, but he is not me.”

    My body has always been my faithful buddy, through many trials, and during many difficult times; and I let him know how much I appreciate his faithful service. We have an understanding: I take very good care of him, and he looks up to me as the boss. As Saint Francis used to say, “This body is Brother Donkey. I feed him, I wash him, but I am going to ride on him.” Whenever we use drugs, or smoke, or drink, or even overeat, the donkey is riding on us. Francis challenges us: “Don’t you want to get that donkey off your back and ride on it?”

  2. American President Bill Clinton became a vocal supporter of The China Study. In 2010, after years of living with heart disease, he undertook the diet, eating legumes, vegetables, fruit and a protein shake every morning, effectively living as a vegan.[2] Within a short period he had dropped 24 pounds, returning him to his college weight.[32] Sanjay Gupta, CNN’s chief medical correspondent, said in his documentary The Last Heart Attack in August 2011 that The China Study had changed the way people all over the world eat, including Gupta himself.[33]
