Yassa African Restaurant

Senegalese cuisine is similar to that of other Western African cultures. Fish, lamb and beef are incorporated into most dishes, often stewed or combined with fresh juices. Consider the historical background of Senegal (Woolof, Islam, and French) and the flavors become apparent.

Cafe Trinidad (closed)

Trinidadian food is unique in that it contains influences from several different countries, and therefore can't just be categorized as "Caribbean" or "Jamaican" cuisine. Owner Darrel Hicks describes his food by saying, "If you're looking for that cross between Indian and African and a creole base - you're gonna get a great tasting food".

Soul Vegetarian East

Soulful fare without the meat. Go for the vegan mac and cheese stay for the peach cobbler. And don't forget the collard greens.

Army & Lou's (closed)

Since 1945, this soul food establishment has maintained quality service, food, and its original award-winning (made-from-scratch) recipes. Be sure to save room for some of their delicious fresh-baked cobbler.

I left home for Mather’s More Than a Café about 8:30 Friday morning. I arrived around 8:45. It was the day that Miss Chicago would be featured for, “The Friday Night Dinner Show.” I had been waiting to see and hear Marisa Buchheit, Miss Chicago.
