new in the neighborhood

I've been meaning to check out Jimmy Jamm Sweet Potato Pies since the place opened recently. A Trib piece on it last week gave me a reminder. I tried the basic sweet potato pie and the non-dairy soft serve "ice cream" (created as a treat for the lactose intolerant). Both were melt-in-your-mouth delicious. They also have a praline & pecan version, a sugar free version (for diabetics), baked sweet potatoes with different toppings (meat or veggie), deli sandwiches, muffins, cookies, etc.

If you've never tried sweet potato pie, it's similar to pumpkin. Tasty stuff! Great addition to the neighborhood.

Check out Jimmy Jamm at 1844 W. 95th St. (773-779-9105) 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday-Saturday.
