PLACES TO EAT

Zapatista, 1307 S. Wabash - Official Web Site

Zapatista is a lively neighborhood restaurant with a generous helping of Mexican flair. Waiters cheerfully call out to one another; colorful tiles adorn the walls; upbeat salsa music infuses each conversation. The result is a sparkling, energetic atmosphere that welcomes guests to linger and enjoy the dining experience.

As you pore over the menu, complimentary chips and salsa are brought to your table. The chips are uncommonly tasty and put you in danger of ruining your appetite; munch carefully!

Begin your meal with soup; Zapatista has several soup choices and the Tortilla Soup is a must-try. This warm, flavorful soup is an exotic version of old-fashioned tomato soup. It is topped with queso fresco (fresh cheese), crispy tortilla strips, avocado and sour cream.

For your entrée, try the Burrito. You can choose from a filling of grilled steak, chipotle chicken, roasted pork or roasted vegetable. Each burrito comes stuffed with fresh romaine lettuce, sour cream, black beans, queso fresco, pico de gallo and your choice of five sauces, ranging in spiciness from mild to muy, muy caliente! It is served with Mexican rice and black beans.

Another recommended entrée is the enchilada. Try the Suizas; this is a hearty, shredded beef enchilada with poblana cream salsa, Chihuahua cheese, sour cream and pico de gallo. This entrée consists of three large enchiladas and will almost certainly result in leftovers!

The Spicy Sweet Potato Fries are an interesting side dish; the surprising blend of sweet and fried potato is a great complement to the burrito and the enchilada.

If you have room left after your meal, try one of Zapatista’s unique desserts. Choose from Orange Flan, Chocolate Tamale or Mexican Cheesecake and end your evening on a decidedly sweet note!
