Why are there three?

If you're driving around Ashland and Division streets in the East Village, you'll probably do a double-take. Or I guess a triple-take. That's because there are 3 La Pasadita restaurants. 3! There are 2 on one side of the corner, and 1 on the other. I can't really tell you why, expect one family owns all 3 and I guess they like having the market, or in this case, the block cornered.

What I can tell you is they have the best Carne Asada tacos you'll ever eat. In his best cowboy costume, and me dressed as "I Dream of Jeannie" (clever, huh?), Mike and I went there about 1 o'clock this morning. We ordered 8 tacos, and yes, we ate all 8. They are AMAZING! (Are they that good when you haven't been drinking? I can't say for sure.)
A word of caution: the tacos will make you incredibly thirsty about 5 a.m. As I went to the kitchen and downed a 7-up, I looked over and saw Mike chugging water from the Brita filter. But I say it was La Pasadita worth it!

  1. My buddy Dave and I went there after the Wilco concert. One of the best steak burritos I ever had! Nice to know you are learning you way around Chi-town's fantastic food selection! Be well.
