Goodies from the neighborhood Italian

Goodies from the neighborhood Italian

Our favorite neighborhood Italian mom & pop grocery cum trattoria is back. The owners normally spend a month in Italy in August. It is October now and we haven’t been there. Time to go back there and enjoy a meal.

    That is probably something I will miss when I go home Arlene. This place is so cheap you can get a great meal for less than $10 or even $5. And authentic Italian.

    In a Latino neighborhood – yes. We don’t have good enough Mexican restaurant around here but we’ve got the best gellateria in the whole city of Chicago in that Italian grocery. And their Italian dishes are great too, not to mention reasonable.

    Arlene, yes. But I love them for sandwiches too drizzled with some balsamic and EVOO.

    I am not really sure how they make those sausages, most of them are imported from Italy. At least I know they are authentic.
