¡Feliz Cumpleaños, Vitamina T!

These amazing cupcakes and the best coffee in town delight locals and tourists at  Pierrot Gourmet (The Penisula Hotel, Chicago). 

Tired of trying to find “authentic” Mexican restaurants to give my soul a respite from my homesickness, I stopped looking for culinary embassies for fear of being disappointed. Luckily, as I desperately looked for the flavors of my youth, I discovered in food, an incredibly interactive cultural artifact.  Food eventually became my connection to my new world.  This is how Vitamina T (Vitamin T) was born.

Mexicans talk about “la Vitamina T” (Vitamin T) to refer to tacos, tortas, tamales, tostadas and other carb-loaded delicacies. In this blog, I will share my unbiased findings and recommendations on local and not so local eateries, often served with a side of Latin America. Enjoy!
