I get the tortilla soup at Frontera Fresco at the Macy’s food court semi-regularly and love it. A few months ago I was able to go to Xoco Wicker Park. I remember that the weather was just turning chilly and I decided to get one of the caldos (the soups). The selection is better at Xoco and I decided on the Shortrib Red Chile Caldo (braised Creekstone shortribs, red
chile broth, roasted vegetables, epazote, wild arugula, lime). I carried it to go (and they, for some reason gave me a metal spoon with a to go order) and it was still hot when I arrived at my destination. And? So rich and delicious. I want to get back for more caldos and tortas!!!

This post is way late, but I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed Stage 37, which was set up in Block 37. I pass through this shopping center twice a day on my commute and it was fun to hear all of the different bands playing. These photos and video were taken at all different times through out the summer. I hope they do it again next year!
