Mr. D's Shish - Kabobs, for the person who loves it off the char-grill!

click on the pics. for a larger more delicious view!

Mr. D's Shish - Kabobs located at 6656 W. Diversey - right by the Brickyard Mall, which i used to hang out at when i was a kid. it was actually a lot of fun too!

Mr. D's is an excellent choice for char-grilled steak sandwiches, shish-kabobs, and hamburgers. really everything at D's is good. and if he's feeling sociable, which he usually is, Mike, the owner (D) with a raspy, scratchy voice, is totally unique and interesting.

but one of the real secret weapons are his stewed/grilled onions. they are the best! if you like onions that is. they're super soft like baby food, and have been marinated/seasoned in lots of wonderful spices for what tastes like an eternity. they are soooooo good. to me. a must have on anything you choose to get. plus, he still makes his own fresh cut fries!

i've been going there since i was kid with my cousins. when we were kids, D would hook us up by leaving food at the door if he was closing and we called to late. he'd let us just pay him next time we came in. that was an excellent perk too! but we lost it, my cousin got arrested and went to prison for years. ended the whole thing. whatta jerk. my cousin.

go to Mr.D's, it's "Monte-licious!"

"De-Jred!" for Jamaican! I love the food, but I loathe the music!

click on the pics. for a larger, more delicious viewing!

De-Jred is at 4901 Oakton Street in Skokie and they're not open on monday. 847-983-4582

this is an amzing Jamaican restaurant. i feel if i grew up with jamaican friends in my hood, this is what i would have eaten in their homes. but i didn't, so this will do just fine!

pictured is the Roast Beef marinted in herbs n' spices and the Veggie Stir Fry, both excellent items. the roast beef is extremely tender and full of sweet and spicy flavors. not salty at all. the veggies are fresh, and full of nutrients. they both come with rice n' beans which are perfect for sloppin up the juices on the plate.

i have also had the Brown Stew Chicken, and that is delicious too! and it's a way better price than the Roast Beef, which is "Monte-licious!"

i love the food, but i loathe the music! and i don't wanna hear about it either!!

"Hot Chocolate" for an organic burger

you can click on the pic. for a much larger more delicious view!

Hot Chocolate is at 1747 N. Damen in Wicker Park they serve organic sustainable food, so it's a bit pricier than most, but in my opinion it is worth it... every now n' again.
