While there are plenty of great food choices in Pilsen, there’s one place that I return to time and time again; The Jibarito Stop. It’s a family owned business and the food is incredible. Inside, nothing beats the community vibe, especially during the summer. One day while I was eating lunch, I looked up and saw this on the wall. The lighting at that moment was perfect. It’s story accurate.

The jibarito sandwich originated in Chicago. It is made with two fried plantains sandwiched together with chicken or steak then topped with lettuce, tomato, and mayo. Especially good with a side of Arroz con gandules!
