African Lunch Truck near Whole Foods

CrazyC | Mar 3, 200412:45 PM

I am taking a break from eating a lunch box I got from the Bolat Lunch Truck on Dearborn and Erie. This is the first time I have bought from this place, and it is a result of many months reading over the posts on this board.

I got a box of red rice, with beef and spicy gravy and plantains. Not too spicy at first, but it grows slowly, but surely. My tummy is all warm and tingly now.

The beef is a little tough, but the gravy is exceptional. It looked greasy in the tray, but the rice soaks it up very well. I would try the chicken next time though, and the fish looked pretty good too.

There were containers of yams, and other stuff up above, but I did not want to hold up the line. I tried to get a container of the white yams, but she told me no... apparently, it doesn't go with what I ordered... =)

For $6, this is a good deal, and I will definitely be back.
