Colombian is the specialty in this cozy little North-side restaurant. The name comes from the town in the well-known novel One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel García-Márquez. Much like Márquez, owner Leo Suarez strives to bring Colombian culture to the rest of the world, and Chicago in particular. The menu contains several varieties of empanadas, such as Carne Molida (seasoned ground beef), as well as sides like Yuca Frita (fried yucca) and Plantano Maduro (sweet plantain wedges). Many also come for the Colombian coffee, which is delicious—and, as a bonus, fair-trade. - Gina Rosemellia
Step into La Fonda Latino Grill for some authentic Colombian cuisine. The food is prepared using recipes handed down through generations. The service at La Fonda may not be the best around, but is certainly known for mixing up some great margaritas and sangrias. Portions are good and some dishes to be tried include plato montanero.
For a typical Costa Rican dining experience, Irazu is the perfect spot. Among the authentic varieties, the Milanesa is a favorite and comprises steak, covered with breadcrumbs served with yellow rice, pinto beans, sweet plantains, salad and white cheese & tomato sauce topping! Costa Rican cuisine uses exotic herbs, shrubs and plantains which combine perfectly well with most of their dishes. The traditional mustard sauce with Tilapia is a must try. The daily specials feature veggies and other regular sides comprising beans, sweet plantain, beans and cabbage salad. Ask for multiple flavored shakes which are prepared in water, milk or soy.
Great, delicious food is not the only reason for you to visit D'Noche. The gorgeous interiors create a cozy ambiance, great for date night! This place really does know how to pick their staff. There will never be a disappointing moment in terms of the service received. The wait staff is all well-informed about the menu, and make some recommendations. The steak burrito, the garlic butter and the jibarito are all scrumptious!
This spot provides all the right ingredients for a fun Tex-Mexican dining experience: an exciting, colorful atmosphere, large, tasty portions and killer margaritas. Typical fare includes ribs, fajitas and quail. People do not seem to mind the usually long wait and borderline kitschy theme restaurant setting. If you are lucky, you can grab a seat at the bar with your friends and make a long but happy evening out of it. Like the name suggests, this place feels like a large house or hacienda, complete with chandeliers and antiques as decorations.
