A La Salsa

Midtown Global Market
Chicago & Lake Street

price: $9-13

Midtown Global Market is dead on a holiday weekend. I am sitting here admiring the wall of tequila before me. This is the first time I have blogged (and photographed) from my phone. I am a glass of La Capilla tequila on the rocks (now on sale at Chicago Lake Liquor for $9.99 a bottle) and it is a smooth 100% agave.


There is definite airport vibe here - which I don't mind.

We ware greeted by a smile and a bowl of chips. The service is great so far. I am almost beginning to forget the last experience.


I order the Plato De Carnitas and my friend orders the Tamale Platter. Both entrees are out immediately. We dig in. The pork is tender and is served with pickled peppers and carrots. Fortunately for me, I ordered a side of sauce.

The sauce is creamy and almost resembles Thai peanut sauce. I pour it over the pork. This stuff is addictive. My friend puts it on his tamales. It is tasty on everything!

Our server comes to clear our plates and looks down at my empty bowl of sauce. Her eyes get big and says, "You ate all of that!". For a minute, I wonder if this sauce is crack. No, she is just surprised that a gringo finished it. "What is this", I ask. "It is the Diablo Sauce", she replies. I find out that the creamy texture is roasted garlic. My mind begins to think of ways to recreate this at home.

overall rating: 4
chips & salsa: 1
sauce: 5

The fitness tips for motivation we've been discussing can be very powerful if you use them. What you should do is to focus or target a particular group of muscle for once or even twice a week. Emotion linked to a definite objective is a strong mixture.

Since the Samsung Galaxy N7000's screen is large, it makes maneuvering from one application to another very easy and convenient. Most of the Android smart phones come with their own customized ring tones which can be set as ring tones and other tones but now in this article lets learn about something with which you can set the customized Alarm Ring tones to android devices very easily. 3 Mp, the camera is clearly aimed at competing with other semi-high range cameras, not those that compete with those inside a smartphone or tablet.

Polarising filters are a must-have accessory for any landscape photographer.
A Canon Powershot s60 software also comes either
for Microsoft Windows operating software or for the
Mac operating software, so this means whatever operating software you use, you can be sure that your
Canon Powershot s60 digital camera will work great for you.
Well Canon, hate to say it, but most amateurs don't like to haul around an external flash unit.

However, there is high internet access on the phone and there are
all possibilities of a virus attack on the phone.
Both the displays are easily among the best, with the i - Phone 4 marginally leading the way in terms of display
quality and the Galaxy S winning the size battle. Then
it was dragged by a string and the results are there in front of you.
