House of Beer on Division Street is still one omy my favorite places. Next to the Cubby Bear, that is.
Froggy's in Highwood is fantastic and right across from the train.
I do love Rick Bayless's food as well, just seems a little pricey at times.
Are you from the Dominican Republic? I noticed your location was Dominicanrep. If so, I have a question. We visited the Dominican Republic last October. We had a great time, we loved it. Although we were in a resort we made it into the nearest town to eat and shop. We were served, some would say over served a drink called Mamajuana.
For those of you who are unfamiliar, Mamajuana is a mixture of bark, roots and herbs that has been soaked in white rum and red wine. In the Dominican Repuplic the cocktail was dark in color, sweet and slightly bitter and said to the cure for anything from head aches to fatique. You could purchase bottles of the bark, roots and herbs sans the rum and wine, which I did, to bring home. I added the rum an red wine as directed and it is waaaayyyyyyyy to bitter.
I am wondering if there is some kind of local secret to taming this down so it can be consumed.
Any input would be appreciated.
