Next time you want to try some amazing food, drive to:
La Unica Food Mart
1515 West Devon Avenue
Even though my blog mostly promotes the North Shore where I live and work, I was raised to believe that suburbanites need to go explore and enjoy the outstanding City of Chicago. Here is a great place to start.
I have headed here several times for delicious, well-priced meals. You can find regional dishes from Cuba, Columbia, Mexico & Peru. Did I mention how delicious everything is?
The restaurant is in the back of this grocery store. This past visit I stopped and took some photos of some awesome sodas they sold there. They carry Inca Cola which is a taste you have to try. What do you think? The grocery has all the departments you'd expect but you can also buy traditional cookware from these countries, cuts of meat you don't see at all places, tons of imported foods and piñatas that do not involve "Frozen" and other Disney characters. (Although now that my kids are teens, I have to admit being quietly amused at a birthday party years ago watching little kids take a bat to Barbie's head...but that's another blog entry.)
