Tepatulco, is a Mexican-joint in the heart of Lincoln Park,one of Chicago’s upscale neighborhoods, Tepatulcois is not your average taco place.
Artful execution, intense and unusual flavors, and an elegant presentation, sets this place apart from neighboring burrito joints, specialized in providing massive burritos to massive drunken clubbers.
That, and the fact that the menu offers dishes with Chapulines, or crickets, a staple of Mexican cuisine - makes it all the more unique.
Don’t let it bug you. They’re not too bad. Somebody described their peculiar tang as “Chicken Flavored Peanuts.”
A pound of these tasty bugs can cost around $30, a small prize to pay for the amount of fun you can have serving these Cricket quesadillas at your next party! Chef Franz can show you how to properly eat bugs in a scrumptious quesadilla.
