I discovered Los Portales, a hidden little gem loved by everyone in Rogers Park. I came expecting authentic Mexican food, and that’s exactly what I got! We started out with a cup of freshly made guacamole that was just… Perfect…
I also got a plate of empanadas that I ended up taking home with me instead.
Finally, the main course: Al Pastor tacos! The roasted pork is probably the best of its kind I’ve ever had (Yelp was right!). Put it in a little tiny corn tortilla, and you’ve got one of the best tacos I’ve ever had!
I’m so glad I went here. Not only did I leave with a happy belly, the next morning I got to repeat it again by refrying those empanadas!
