Hey, Chicago: where will you be watching the World Cup? Soccer. Fútbol. Whatever you call it, you are psyched that the FIFA World Cup is upon us once again after a long four-year wait. Though Americans may not be the biggest soccer fans (yet) every city has its die-hard supporters and Chicago is no exception. Here’s where to watch in the Windy City when you want a good game and a good meal.
All-inclusive resorts conjure up thoughts of big buffet breakfasts, piña colada-filled days, and even bigger buffet dinners. But the food landscape is changing at luxury Paradisus Resorts in Mexico and the Dominican Republic. World renowned, six Michelin-star chef Martin Berasategui recently launched his fourth restaurant, which is not only open to resort guests (for an extra cost), but also to locals.
Native Chicagoans know that good Latin food is around virtually every corner. With one of the largest Latino populations in the U.S., and more than one quarter of the city of Hispanic descent, there’s no denying that Chicago is more than a meat and potatoes kind of town.
When we think of the culinary history of Germany, Mexican food doesn't exactly enter the picture. For some Berlin locals, Mexican cuisine may mean an odd concoction of cabbage filled tacos with mayonnaise, but thankfully, change is afoot. In the last couple of years, more sabor has emerged and Mexican restaurants, yes, real Mexican restaurants, are making an impression and filling a void in a city starving for more ethnic flair.
The 2nd annual The Taste of Mexico, which takes place in Los Angeles on November 30, offers all lovers of good food the opportunity to sample dishes from some of southern California’s most authentic Mexican restaurants.
Los Angeles has the nation's highest number of Mexican immigrants; unsurprisingly, there’s a vast array of Mexican restaurants here with cuisine from every region of the country.
Sometimes there’s nothing more refreshing than an ice-cold beer. But maybe you’re tired of the standard fare and craving something a little different, something with a little more sabor? 5 Rabbit, the first Latino-owned craft brewery in the United States has hit the Chicago scene, and with ingredients like ancho chile, piloncillo (unrefined cane sugar), and passion fruit, it’s definitely spicing up the beer industry.
This classic is usually served with huacatay-aji sauce (Peruvian hot chile pepper and herb sauce), Peruvian milk mayonnaise, french fries and salad. Although we marinated our chicken with 5 Vulture, it also pairs wonderfully with 5 Rabbit Golden Ale.
5 Rabbit is Chicago's first Latin-themed craft brewery.
