Bodega N. 5 Included in Time Out Chicago's Cheap Eats Article

We still haven't had the fortune of going to Bodega N. 5 at 634 S. Michigan, but it was just included within Time Out Chicago's cheap eats article. Judging by this write-up, we need to go pronto:

There are hefty empanadas, generous salads and crispy flatbreads on Bodega N. 5’s menu, where everything costs $5 (until 5pm, when pricier items from upstairs sibling Mercat a la Planxa sneak onto the menu). But for our Lincoln, we’re taking the humble turkey sandwich. It starts with a soft herb focaccia, which gets piled with thin slices of turkey, fat slabs of bacon and slices of Mahón (a sharp cow’s-milk cheese from Spain), and is finished with a honey-Dijon aioli. Packaged with a side of cheddar-dusted chips, it’s a lunch that’ll keep you full until happy hour, at a price not even Potbelly can match. 634 S Michigan Ave (312-542-3605).—David Tamarkin
