Kat and I were out at Old Orchard Mall in Skokie today and decided to stop for a bite to eat. We opted to try acclaimed chef Rick Bayless' quick-service restaurant, Frontera Fresco. I found it to be a fresh option for some quick food while on a shopping trip.
We had some chips and guacamole. One nice touch at Frontera Fresco--you can choose different toppings for your guacamole, one of which is bacon! I liked the guacamole. The chips had a lime taste-which I liked-- but were a little salty.
For lunch, I had the mushroom quesadilla. It was made with three types of mushrooms--cremini, button, and shiitake--with poblano peppers. Very yummy!
I enjoyed the food at Frontera Fresco and will definitely go back. It is a good choice for a quick meal that does not taste as processed as your normal mall fare. There are also a lot of Mexican favorites to choose from, which is pretty impressive for a quick-service restaurant. The only complaint--the restaurant has very limited seating. But, I am willing to overlook that for good food!
