Tomatillo Chicken Tamale

I was waiting for Mark, a Boston newcomer, to make his way two stops down the Red Line to meet me at Best Buy. This proved more difficult for Mark than either of us had expected, and gave me enough time to drop in unexpected (cameraphone) at Boca Grande for lunch.

As always, ordering was a last minute decision. I went with the tomatillo chicken tamale, for $4.25. That's pretty pricey for a tamale, which are usually under $2.00.

You get what you pay for - there was such a nice balance of spice, corn, tomatillo, and chicken. I added nothing.

This was a tamale of superlatives:

  • Most expensive
  • Most massive
  • Most delicious
  • Most definitely recommended

This Boca Grande Taqueria meal was rated: 7.9.
