there's always room for another serving
I’m not sure if the area around the Sheridan red line stop has a name but it should because it’s definitely becoming a cute spot to hang out and grab a bite to eat. Greg and I have dubbed it the “Sheridan Corridor” and we kind of fell in love with the other weekend.
Some of the places have been there for ages – Artemio’s and Tac Quick on the Sheridan side, Byron’s and the Holiday Club on the Irving Park side - but newer additions like Crepe Town and Pizza Rustica (whose new digs on the West side of the street look stunning) have really added to the appeal of this area. You’ve pretty much got every world cuisine right at your finger tips now and while I’m not a huge fan of Petite Pita and haven’t tried Los Caminos De Michoacan they both get good reviews.
I can’t believe it’s taken us this long to dine IN at Tac Quick (we normally do the delivery thing) but we had a phenomenal meal which we capped off with a nutella crepe and latté over at Crepetown afterward. Tac Quick has some of the best, most authentic Thai cuisine in the city and it’s BYOB, which is a bonus. Order off the not-so-secret “secret menu” and go for something you can’t get anywhere else. And definitely try the moo ping. Part of me just likes saying moo ping but it really is delicious. Crepe Town isn’t as popular – all the more reason to visit, if you ask me – but the service is great, the crepes come out fast, they’re delicious, and the lattés were good too.
I almost felt like I was on vacation, sitting with a window seat at Tac Quick, watching the passersby and the red line [slowly] coming and going. Greg and I love going out and we love supporting local and this itinerary just hit the spot on all levels. (The only disappointment of the night was that (a) Thai food isn’t necessarily the most beautiful and (b) the lighting was poor so the photos that follow aren’t the best so you’ll have to let your taste buds decide for themselves.)
