Tamales: Temporary tattoo and gumball machines line the bright blue-and-yellow tiled walls, adding to the festive, traditional taqueria feel of La Casa del Pueblo Taqueria, a cafeteria-style taqueria in Pilsen. The tamales are wrapped and buried in a tub of tin foil, making it difficult for customers to recognize them as a menu option, but hiding in that foil vat are wet, flavor-gorged tamales. At $1 per tamale, it's easy to get swept up and order a few of each of the many options. 1834 S. Blue Island Ave., 312-421-4664
