Chicago’s only Costa Rican cantina has been serving authentic cuisine since 1990, so they definitely know what’s up. Helmed by Henry Cerdas, who took over the biz from his parents Gerardo Cerdas and Miriam Cerdas-Salazar, this family-run joint never disappoints. All their dishes are bursting with flavor, with plenty of veggie, seafood, and meat options to spare. If you swing by, be sure to bring cash (they’re cash-only) and beers (they’re also BYOB), or wine (and BYOW), or vodka (also BYOV) or… you get the gist.
