Beginning October 15 to 21, Her Campus UIC is partnering with Her Campus UCLA to compare the differences between Chicago and Los Angeles. #HCUICLA is our social media hashtag on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram; don’t miss out! **We will conclude the collaboration with this article**
Fall seems to be everyone’s favorite season here in The Windy City, and these are some of the many places around campus to enjoy the sweater weather.

1. Furious Spoon in Pilsen: 1316 W 18th St, Chicago, IL 60608
It is a perfect place for ramen; it’s affordable, more than enough for a hungry appetite, a great atmosphere, and it might be better than some places in New York City. When the weather is nice, they open up their enormous slide windows that open up to the beautiful neighborhood of Pilsen. There’s many authentic Mexican bakeries, grocery stores, and shops surrounding Furious Spoon.

2. La Michoacána Premium: 1855 S Blue Island Ave, Chicago, IL 60608
I am the type of person who doesn’t care that it’s 60 degrees outside and will still buy ice cream. La Michoacána has a variety of flavors of ice cream and other tasty foods found in an ice cream shop. My recommendation: a mangonada because it is both sweet and fresh with pieces of mango and mango ice cream.

3. Pompei: 1531 West Taylor Street, Chicago, IL 60607
If you’re looking for a nice place to enjoy an affordable plate of Italian cuisine, you need to go to Pompei down on Taylor Street. It is a family-owned company, and it is both affordable and delicious, they might not have their tables to eat outside all the time, but it’s definitely a favorite to those who pile in during lunchtime. It’s only 15 minutes away from campus on the bus.
