I LOVE MY (LITTLE) INDIA
My guide to Chicago's Little India neighborhood is now online.
You can read it here.
-The main drag is on Devon Avenue between Damen and Francisco.
-Most places open around 11, and are closed on Tuesdays (the sign will say "Tuesday Closed")
-There's a free parking lot (5-10 weekdays and 12-10 weekends) at St. Timothy's, on the corner of Rosemont and Washtenaw.
-The best selection of fabric can be found east of Western AVenue.
-Other types of ethnic goodies - kosher, Russian, Jewish, Georgian, Iraqi - can be found west of California Avenue
-The late-night mecca Delhi Darbar Kebab House recently reopened at 2916 W. Devon Avenue. They're open from 5pm to 4am, and the food is made per order - and inexpensive.
I already miss living in this neighborhood....
....and I haven't even moved yet.
