When In Roslindale, Go To Romano's

It was late September, and I needed a haircut. But I was way too busy to be concerned with appearances, and so I waited.

Then it was mid December, and my friends and family slowly stopped recognizing me. So I went to Sebastian's Barber Shop in Roslindale, and while I was there, had to grab a snack at Romano's Pizza.

Carnitas taco, chicken tamale, and that haircut were exactly what I needed.

The taco came with hot sauce already applied, at my request. Onions and cilantro are standard; tomatoes and cheese are not.

Taco weight: 3.9 oz | Price: $2.00 | FDR: 1.95

This being my first tamale from Romano's, I didn't know what to expect. Tamales are hit or miss, but Romano's pizza had yet to let me down.

At $2, their tamale is probably less than half the size of Boca Grande's tomatillo chicken tamale ($4.25), but has all the verde sauce and corn taste. Bravo Romano's, bravo. I'll be back in mid March when the hair is long and I look like a caveman again.

Tamale weight: 4.8 oz | Price: $2.00 | FDR: 2.40

This Romano's Pizza meal was rated: 7.8.
