Pozoleria San Juan in Humboldt Park has a long Mexican menu, but their namesake soup—pozole—is why you should come here. They have three types, but the rojo is our favorite. It’s richly flavored with guajillo chiles, full of pork and fluffy hominy, and becomes even more robust when dressed up with red onion, avocado, and crispy chicharon. After the first bite, the shiny tiled walls, checkered tablecloths, and kitchen clamor will vanish. Pozole is all that matters, and you'll forget that you're eating in a restaurant that feels like someone’s dining room. The only downside is that this spot closes at 7pm, but at least they open early at 9am.
