5 Rabanitos is a family restaurant with food that is so good it’s worthy of your special occasion. I remember Chef Alfonso Sotelo’s fried chicken every Sunday night at West Town Tavern, and I will never forget his slow-cooked goat caldo at Xoco.
At his own restaurant in the heart of Pilsen, Chef Alfonso’s food has only gotten more delicious. The signature dish, Grilled Chicken Rabanitos Style, gets a big char flavor from the grill balanced perfectly by a honey garlic marinade. I was physically unable to put my fork down.
For dessert, I had the perfect pair of a piece banana cream pie and cup of steaming hot cafe de olla, made from Chef’s grandmothers recipe. I want to try so many things on the menu but those dishes were so amazing, it’s going to be tough ordering anything else!
