Foodie Review: Unidad: A Latin Kitchen and Bar

158

As you have probably read in other blog posts created in 2023, I set a goal to visit one “new-to-me” Mexican restaurant each month. These restaurants have been around for years, but for some reason, I’ve never visited.  Unidad: A Latin Kitchen and Bar in Evergreen Park, Illinois, is number eleven on the list!  

Let me start by saying the food is super delicious. I would have given the location 5 stars if the portion size was larger. Meaning, I shouldn’t pay $9 for the Salsa Trio and only get 1 small bowl of chips. We had so much salsa left and no chips to eat it – without paying for a refill.

Back to the rest of the amazing food. You must try the Elote Fritters. The elotes are shaped in a circle disc and lightly fried and topped with mayo, cotija cheese and tajin. We also ate the Carnita Empanadas, which has Coca-Cola braised pork shoulder.

I ate the chicken enchiladas for the main entree. This has 3 small enchiladas that comes with flavorful rice and beans.

Oh… the drinks! I tried the I Love Lucy. It has vodka, lime, strawberry puree and soda. The ingredients are simple, but the flavor was delicious and powerful.

Unidad is a small dining location. There isn’t a parking lot or valet, but there’s a good amount of street parking; especially weeknights. It’s best to make reservations through the website. I would definitely go back, possibly for happy hour and eat tacos.
