-Grubbing in Chicago
Tropical Brunch in Logan Square

I'm not a regular participator in brunch like others. But I do enjoy going out for it now and then. One such spot I'll always welcome a weekend meal at is Caribella on Fullerton (byob) in Logan Square. I wouldn't say it's overlooked but bc Fullerton is the type of street it is sometimes it's hard to spot. I think they used to have a previous location somewhere else in the area though. The menu as the name might suggest has Caribbean influence from the likes of the regions Spanish speaking nations.

Caribella does both breakfast and lunch and brunch by extension. One of my favorite warm weather snacks is coconut shrimp. Big in places like Key West and the Nayarit region of Mexico. Which is why I consider it tropical food. Caribella makes a very nice housemade batch. Same goes for the mango habanero sauce they're served with. Other popular menu items seem to be both French Toast and pancakes topped with tropical fruits, sandwiches like jibaritos, and both skillets and omelettes.

My go-to order from here is to split the Caribella Skillet with my wife and then we like to get something else to go with it which switches by visit. The skillet is unique in that instead of potatoes they use diced up fried plantains mixed with a hint of garlic, avocado, pepper, onion, and tomato. Typically it's served with a smoked turkey sausage but we order it with traditional bacon. It really does a remind of a dish I'd be served if I was dining at the equivalent of a hip little breakfast, lunch, coffee place in somewhere like Puerto Rico or Mexico. On a cold winter day that's just whats needed.

You should see how my friend Wesley Virgin's autobiography launches with this shocking and controversial VIDEO.

You see, Wesley was in the army-and shortly after leaving-he revealed hidden, "MIND CONTROL" tactics that the CIA and others used to obtain whatever they want.

THESE are the EXACT same tactics tons of famous people (notably those who "became famous out of nothing") and elite business people used to become wealthy and famous.

You probably know that you use only 10% of your brain.

That's because the majority of your brain's power is UNCONSCIOUS.

Maybe this conversation has even occurred INSIDE OF YOUR very own mind... as it did in my good friend Wesley Virgin's mind 7 years back, while riding an unregistered, beat-up trash bucket of a vehicle without a license and with $3.20 on his debit card.

"I'm so fed up with living paycheck to paycheck! When will I become successful?"

You've taken part in those questions, isn't it right?

Your own success story is going to be written. You need to start believing in YOURSELF.
