Mexican/Central American/Caribbean Tour in Chicago Tue, 04/21/09 11:09 PM (permalink)
For anyone that missed it, on the way to one of our stops on the Chicago/Milwaukee Spring Fling, we passed by this place:

Even though we were in different cars, we simultaneously had the same thought- we. must. go. there.

After a little research, we discovered it's called La Palapa, located at 2000 W 34th St, in the McKinley Park neighborhood. 

So, I'm proposing a laid back, more relaxed food tour (e.g. fewer stops, more time at each) centered around Latino/Caribbean food.  I'm thinking late June/early July (not the holiday weekend, unless that really works for people- I have no plans at this time).  I'm thinking two, maybe three stops before we descend on La Palapa.

As I mentioned in the Spring Fling thread, a few years ago, Mr. Maki and another couple did a mini-tour where we hit a Jamaican restaurant (Jamaica Jerk), Puerto Rican (La Bruquena), Costa Rican (Irazu), and Cuban (Cafe Cubano).  Irazu is the only place I'm really attached to for this tour, so any other suggestions are welcome. 

La Palapa is BYOB, so who's bringing the blender?
