We went to Chicago over the weekend for an AAW show (see video below for a recap), but one of the highlights, if not THE highlight of the trip was an impromptu lunch at a vegetarian Mexican restaurant.
Quesadilla La Reina del Sur entered our timeline when we needed it most; we had been shopping for a few hours and needed a quick, light meal since we had plans on eating a larger meal in a few hours. Those plans ended up falling through, but it was for the better since the food at La Reina was very filling and kept us satisfied until later in the night.
The restaurant is located on a seemingly quiet street corner, tucked in next to a few other Mexican eateries, a neon shop (insert an “it’s lit” joke), and neighboring a residential area. The inside is small with a handful of tables and a service counter. We sat near the door where an array of plants provided a pleasant background for my meal.
