We had friends who lived in Champaign for several years, but they moved about 5 years ago. When we'd visit them there, we'd go to Radio Maria
, whose breakfast burrito is still one of my favorites, especially with a mug of Mexican hot chocolate. Pretty much ANY meal we had there was a good one.
Also, they LOVED a Thai restaurant there, called Thara Thai
. Our friends like their food spicy, and they had to convince the owner over several visits that they could handle it as spicy as they do in Thailand, but once they got to that point, they were good.
