Fans of kefir, the yogurt-like dairy product that allegedly fights fatigue, enhances the immune system, promotes gastrointestinal health and might even cure a hangover, should be in heaven at this Block 37 spot, located in the tunnel between the CTA "L" stops. The grab-and-go lineup at the third Chicago Starfruit location from the folks behind Morton Grove-based Lifeway Foods includes kefir parfaits, kefir-based smoothies and frozen soft-serve kefir sundaes. Choose from an array of toppings and mix-ins such as cereal, crushed Oreo cookies, blueberries and strawberries. During the colder months, look for an expanded menu that includes sandwiches and hot oatmeal and cheese crepes (made with Lifeway cheese, natch) with your choice of toppings from the mix-in bar.
