Tastes around the world: Chicago kid-friendly international restaurants

Think your days of tacos and edamame (not together, but you know what we mean) are behind you? Think again.

Take a culinary world tour without leaving Chicago

Introduce your kids to the flavors of the world without leaving Chicago.

Libertad Restaurant

The restaurant offers a kid-friendly dish nightly that's complimentary. The grownups, however, will be asked to donate the amount of their choice to the restaurant's designated charity. The beneficiary will change regularly, says partner and general manager Marcos Rivera.


El Barco Mariscos

Serving seafood with an authentic Mexican bent, this lively, family-friendly eatery greets guests with rows of delectable crab legs on ice and the aroma of sizzling platters of spicy shrimp making their way to patrons of all ages.

1035 N. Ashland Ave., Chicago (773) 486-6850


Ethiopian Diamond

Food is served Ethiopian style, which means there are no utensils. Instead, everyone's order is placed on one large, round serving platter. Diners break off small pieces of the spongy pancake-like injera bread and scoop up whichever food they would like to eat.

6120 N. Broadway Ave. and 7537 N. Clark St.
