I thought I would be adventurous, as I was wandering Chicago in the cold and driving rain, so I stopped in. The place was parked up with Chicago Cabbies, seemed like a Somali hot spot. The establishment is very modest and bare bones. When I entered I was greeted kindly and given time to look over the cafeteria style offerings. One of the gentleman behind the counter recognized my puzzled look and proceeded to kindly show me each offering. Spicy rice, chicken three ways, sliced beef with peppers, a version of spaghetti, and a herbed/seasoned grits-like side i missed the name of. I intended to get just a small meal to warm me on my wanderings. I ended up with a huge platter loaded with spicy rice, grits and what seemed about half a roasted chicken. I paid little over ten bucks and opted out of the city water, a real deal. The food was great but only the hungriest of eaters could finish it all. I loved the spicy rice, it's the kind of thing I make at home, with lots of pepper flakes and spices. The chicken was also very good, baked quite well and died my fingers with what taste like turmeric, cumin and other goodness. The grits get points as well, with flecks of herbs and seasoning. The establishment had a steady roll of take out and quick Cabbie lunch stops. I would say gently that,I was completely comfortable here, but the appearance and lack of amenities may not be for everyone. That said, pick-up take-out if you're on the fence, I bet you'll go back or tell an adventurous foodie friend like me.
