'Tropical' arepa from @bienmesabechicago in Ravenswood, Chicago
Best arepa in Chicago? I'll let @nkindelsperger decide--but this is the best I've had in Chicago so far. I've spent most of my life having subpar arepas growing up in LA of all places, so this was a welcome surprise! This arepa was basically a cornbread pocket rather than the typical moisture vacuum I've grown accustomed to.
Also, Wednesdays for dinner at BienMeSabe feature a $5.99 arepa special. This Tropical one featured shredded chicken, plantains, and beans; though the shredded chicken itself was a tad dry and bland, it was hardly noticeable when eating all the fillings together. Overall a very satisfying and affordable meal.
I'll be coming back Wednesdays pretty regularly for now on.

• N I C E • M E L O N S • I’ve got a canapé event this weekend, people can sometimes be a bit stumped for ideas, the key is not to overthink it. Simple flavours that marry well are always well received. Watermelon + feta is a classic and oh so pretty ✨🍉 #watermelon#canapés
On days off, there are 2 things I enjoy doing: Giving a whack at those Tasty vids on Spacebook and plotting the revolution that will bring an end to the tyranny that is Barbara Streisand. Today was the former. Ham & cheese French toast quesadillas. Had about 4, maybe 5 of these fuckers before bothering to take a picture.
