Chicago – India Town Restaurant Hopping

My next door neighbor is a picky eater. He’s Indian like me… heck now that I think about it, most Indians are picky eaters. So I have decided to scout places with him on Devon and compile a list of favorite spots one can hop from one to another and try at least one dish before they move on to the next. Plus this list is in geographical order beginning from the west side of Devon Street allowing you to work your way East. Before you begin, bring cash, ATM card, and an empty stomach.
