I recently dined out at Rivas, a restaurant featuring Nicaraguan cuisine nestled down on the far Westnern end of the South Side. It features cuisine which you don't see much in this area, with deeply marinated and seasoned meat and fish dishes. I had the Chimichurri steak, which was a thin flank steak marinated in garlic and herbs. It was excellent. We also had a variety of appetizers, the highlight of which was a fish seviche and small fingers of lightly breaded white fish with a sweet sauce. The prices are quite low, with most entrees less than $15.00.
It's well worth a try if you like Latin American cuisine and are looking for a meal with a lot of flavor.
