Blind Faith Cafe (Evanston) Chili?

seethaki Jan 25, 2009 04:37 PM

When I was a student at Northwestern, I ate this stuff almost daily. It's the best vegetarian chili I've ever had. (I mean Blind Faith's regular chili.. made with pinto beans, IIRC.. not the seasoned black beans you could get on your tostada/whatever as an alternative to the regular chili.) Do any of you Chicago-area chowhounds know what might be in it? Even if you've just tried it, and have some vague idea about what might make it so special, I'd love to hear your thoughts. Thanks in advance!

    No just kidding! I remember it being good, but don't really remember the flavor. I may have to check it out next time I'm in Evanston.

      I ate here today. The tofu scramble is delicious. They serve Intelligensia coffee. Try it with a side of non-dairy cornbread and a bit of butter and jam. Crazy good.

        I went there not long ago after a very long absence and found the chili to be just okay. Maybe my palate has changed since college, but it was very generic.
