La Sirena Clandestina is an explosion of Latin American cuisine. This restaurant might be small, but the flavors are big. Make no mistake, this restaurant packs a punch in every dish they serve. La Sirena Clandestina is located in the West Loop neighborhood of Chicago. The tropical aesthetic will capture you and transport you to a little cantina in Mexico. The walls are covered in a rich aqua blue with touches of greenery all throughout the restaurant. Every table is decked out with a pop of natural beauty from the fresh cut flowers La Sirena Clandestina cuts everyday. I hosted a pop-up event at La Sirena Clandestina on a very snowy Saturday for my internship at Krispyfringe Vintage and had the best time hanging out in this cozy space.
The food was spectacular. The smashed breakfast potatoes were almost as fantastic as the thick and juicy side of bacon I ordered. The french toast was also a great addition to my brunch. It was composed of thickly sliced bread, bananas, almond peanut butter and whipped cream. The potatoes were the clear winner here though. Each bit was perfectly crunchy and flavorful.
And how can I not mention the steak and eggs? Sliced steak is paired with a yuka tot, serrano salsa, fried egg and cilantro. If you can handle some heat, don't be afraid to test this dish out.
If you are looking for an out-of-the-ordinary, flavorful breakfast, La Sirena Clandestina is the perfect spot for you.
