On Sunday, Ansari -- apparently running late for his flight out of Chicago's O'Hare International Airport -- took to Twitter to frantically find someone who could help him secure a torta from celebrity chef Rick Bayless' Torta Frontera.
The comedian was apparently in Chicago over the weekend and forgot about the two airport locations until it was too late; Ansari told his more than 2.4 million Twitter followers he would reimburse someone and offer them free tickets to his next Chicago show if a few tortas could be secured before takeoff. The hungry funnyman even tried to leverage his Executive Platinum status with American Airlines to get the pre-flight meal.

In the download-only standup special Ansari released earlier this year, the comedian included a list of his favorite restaurant recommendations (which included one well-known Chicago hot dog spot).
HuffPost took a look back at some of Ansari's favorite moments with Chicago food and it's pretty clear that while many options aren't budget-friendly, the guy has good taste.
