There are a few La Michoacanas in Chicago, and the one we really like is in Pilsen. It has a drive-thru, the people are friendly, and they have great paletas and scoops of ice cream. The treats here are very sweet, perfect for when you want a dessert that tastes like dessert, because not everyone wants an abundance of goat cheese or matcha. Our favorite is the cajeta ice cream, which tastes like frozen condensed milk in the best way, and the rice pudding cream paleta, which is milky and sweet with little bits of rice in it that we really like.
