¡Chicharrón con Ch de Chicago!

[ 2 ] Comments

Find this chicharrón with hot sauce, and other Mexican treats including nieves, guanabana popsicles, and even the regional jicaletas (a snack made with jicama and chile) at La Dulce Vida Nevería in Melrose Park. Flour chicharrones (an alternative to the pork version) as well as fruit with lime, salt and different chiles, are a staple of any Mexican childhood.  Typically sold from street carts, likely with no health clearance, I am convinced this is how kids in Mexico build their immune system.

For those who, like me, are far away from home, La Dulce Vida offers a perfect antidote to homesickness with its large and carefully curated collection of Mexican goodies (from chocolate Abuelita to nieves and even esquites and tamales).  For those who, like my husband, have developed a taste for guanabana popsicles,  this place is a perfect  spot to get your Mexico fix with your evening snack.

I am so excited to have found this place. Who knew that Chicago was so close to Mexico?

La Dulce Vida is open Monday to Sunday from 6:00 am  to 10:00 pm 2015 W. Rice St. Melrose Park, IL 60160
