Time Out Market Chicago, the premier culinary and cultural hub located at 916 W. Fulton Market is excited to add to its carefully curated showcase of delicious cuisine with the addition of Lil Amaru set to open on Monday, January 24. A spinoff of its sister restaurant - Amaru, located in Chicago’s Wicker Park neighborhood, Lil Amaru will feature globally inspired Latin street food.

“It is so exciting to welcome Lil Amaru to our vendor lineup,” said Robert La Pata, Time Out Market Chicago General Manager. “The original Amaru has been a great addition to Chicago’s dining scene, and we’re happy to bring its Latin flair to Time Out Market Chicago as we continue to capture the best of Chicago under one roof.”

Chef Rodolfo Cuadros created the original Amaru concept with the core belief of serving authentic Latin food and drinks and providing excellent service.

“Amaru is so much more than the food,” said Cuadros. “It's more about the energy, passion, and culture. We want to spread our kindness through our hospitality and the food that we serve.”

His passion for cooking shines through the thoughtful menu at Amaru Wicker Park, and he’s now looking forward to bringing a different style of Latin cuisine in the form of street food and tacos to Time Out Market Chicago.

Visitors to Lil Amaru can expect an array of Latin-inspired starters, sandwiches, tacos, and beverages, including the Criollo Chicken Sandwich ($14), Grilled Amish chicken, sweet plantains, mojo criollo, arugula, tomatoes; Choripan ($16), Beef chorizo, burnt garlic aioli, chimichurri, arugula; Cuban Sando ($15), Cuban bread, braised pork shoulder, smoked ham, house-made pickles, dijonaise, Swiss cheese and Pacific Rockfish Taco ($6), Ancho Chile battered rockfish, vigoron, smoked chili aioli, cilantro, and more.
