Editorial Review of Thamara Cafeteria

Fans of Latin food and fans of sandwiches have a lot to celebrate in Chicago these days. More and more, we're seeing Puero Rican food make its presence known on the scene, offering a fantastic alternative to the already incredible variety of Mexican eateries we have to choose from.

The word 'jibarito,' if it isn't already in your vocabulary, should be now. A jibarito is a brilliant sandwich, with the "bread" slices made up from mashed sweet plantains, fried until they're stiff enough to both crunch and support a fully filled sandwich. And when it comes to those fillings, Thamara doesn't skimp, either in terms of quantity or variety.

The fillings are about in line with what you'd expect to find in a taco or torta or burrito. Steak with onions and cilantro are a popular choice, as well as chicken and even shrimp. Juicy without being greasy, you may not even need the mayonesa slathered generously on each slice of the bread.

Average cost: <$10
