Upscale Uninspired Enchiladas

It's been a while since I've been to Tacos El Charro, one of the nicer restaurants that fall within the Burrito Blog tier of dirty / fast casual / truck / counter service. Before moving to California, this was about as close as I could get to some serious non-burrito authentic Mexican food without going to East Boston on Somerville.

I just noticed a lot of the recently reported meals haven't been burritos. I'll get back to them soon.

Anyway, a lot has changed, and my level of enchilada expectation has only grown. Incidentally, so have the prices at Tacos El Charro. Am I spoiled? Perhaps. California makes some damn fine enchiladas. Sadly, I’m the one who suffers for it, because this meal back in Boston's Jamacia Plain didn't measure up.

I got one chicken and one pork. You'd think I'd learned my lesson by now: in side by side comparisons I always prefer the pork. There wasn't anything particularly wrong with this enchilada plate, just uninspiring.

Yeah, I guess it's time to get back to burritos.
