Anything with spinach or truffles. I am taking full advantage of the wealth of authentic latin restaurants after spending over a year in the least latin corner of the world. Please note: Australians do NOT do latin! Currently I'm obsessed with El Nandu in Logan Square. Their sweetbreads and empanadas are insanity on a plate!
