Real Mexican Food In The Boston Area

Many people say or email, "Yeah, ok, fine. Boston has burritos that surpassed my expectations. But there's no real Mexican food in that town."

The implication that burritos are not 'real' Mexican food is a debate I avoid. But I agree, the usual tortilla free Mexican food in Boston is pretty poor. That's what makes this exception so important.

This pork chile rellenos plate from TaQueria La Mexicana is amazing. Real Mexican food, tortilla free, and in Somerville (that's basically Boston for you out of towners). The peppers' kick is mild. The meal is made right before your eyes.

The camera phone doesn't do these stuffed peppers justice. Get it for yourself.
