Dry Cleaning And An Unknown Snack

I was dropping by A-List Cleaners on Harvard Street in Brookline Village to pick up some dry cleaning and say hello to owner and friend, Sheb Shumar.

Two birds with one parking spot: I'll grab lunch next door at Baja Betty's. Perfect.

Recall that Baja Betty's makes a monster burrito. I wasn't in the mood, and so decided to try their edition of my new obsession, chile relleno.

I don't pretend to be a culinary expert, so I'll default to Wikipedia for a description:

The chile relleno, literally "stuffed chile", is a dish of Mexican cuisine, consisting of a roasted green New Mexico or poblano chile pepper stuffed with cheese (traditionally queso fresco), and / or more rarely minced meat), covered in an egg batter, and fried.
Hmm. This was more like an omelet.

For comparison purposes, here are a couple (1, 2) other photos of chiles rellenos I've had the pleasure of eating. Decide for yourself. Either way, the food wasn't that good and was a bit pricey. No complaints on the laundered shirts.

Next time you're at A-List Cleaners, consider the organic dry cleaning and a different menu item from Baja Betty's.
