Jibaritos Y Más
This Puerto Rican spot in Lincoln Park has some of Chicago's best jibaritos. Their crispy plantain sandwiches come with all sorts of fillings like tender steak with grilled onions, blood sausage, or juicy roast pork. Plus, at around $10 each, they're affordable. But what completes each sandwich is their potent garlic spread that adds flavor, and also ensures that no one will want to ride the elevator with you. They have two other locations in Dunning and Logan Square, but this one has a full bar and is more of a sit-down restaurant.
