I landed in Chicago quite quite hungry from my flight because I hadn't packed snacks beforehand (totally forgot). My friend picked me up, and after I lamented my misery, he said that we'd hit up near 18th St. which had excellent Mexican food. I agreed so off we went to this taqueria he liked.

We immediately sat down and got some nice complimentary chips with salsa and limes. The salsa was a tad spicy which was a good waker-upper from a flight. Then I got the horchata which was just so good and creamy. It was nearly perfect; just a bit more cinnamon and I would've fallen head over heels.

As for my dinner, it was their steak burrito. This thing was enormous. I'm glad I didn't get the full dinner because that came with refried beans and some rice. The tortilla was thin and chewy but not in a bad way. It was in a wow-there's-so-much-stuff-bursting-out-of-this-burrito way. The steak was plentiful and chopped into small pieces that mixed well with the refried beans. There were plenty (I do mean PLENTY) of vegetables in the form of lettuce and tomatoes inside as well as sour cream. A great stuffer - I'd like to see how awesome their other foods are one day.
