If it’s Tuesday, then you can look forward to International Nite at the Map Room. Every week they cater a different cuisine from area restaurants. Recent choices included Israeli from Taboun Grill , Costa Rican from IrazĂș, and Soul food from CJ’s Eatery.

Plate of Nigerian food catered by <a href="http://www.yelp.com/biz/iyanze-restaurant-chicago">Iyanze</a>.

Last week was Nigerian night and I got a plate loaded with rice & plantains, greens and ground beef in a pastry shell. In turns, it was greasy, spicy and bland, but went well with the two beers I had to buy to get the free food. Not to say that buying beer here is a problem, because it’s not — the selection is excellent. I quaffed the Metropolitan Flywheel Bright Lager which is on special this month for $4/pint and a Triple Karmeliet that they have on draft.

If you like good beer and want a chance to try ethnic cuisine on the cheap, Map Room should be on your list of places to try.

Get there early to grab a table.  It gets crowded!
