Dia De Los Tamales

939 W 18th St

Chicago, IL 60608

This quirky Mexican spot run out of a former vacant lot serves funky fare with attitude. Whereas most Mexican joints serve up tacos for days, Dia specializes in tamales using traditional preparation and amping 'em up with chef-driven ingredients-- goat cheese, curry coconut chicken, and roasted sweet potatoes, for example. The interior, adorned in Day of the Dead graffiti, as bright and colorful as the food.
