Flan at La Unica Food Mart

Every time I drive by La Unica Food Mart, in Rogers Park, I’m struck by how hidden away this gem truly is. I bet 99.9% of the people who cruise down Devon Avenue – either on their way to the Indian/Pakistani restaurants, or to the Lake – think it’s just another Hispanic grocery store. But of course, all of us devotees know that in the back, past the frozen cases stuffed with arepas and tropical fruit pulp, is a cozy cafe with some of the best Cuban food in Chicago. One of my favorites here has always been the flan, which is as creamy and smooth and luscious as any version I’ve ever had. Buen Provecho.
