Mexican food is supposed to be a warm and soulful experience. With the over abundance of “Mexican” restaurants in Boston this one is squarely in the category of underwhelming and almost fraudulent in its use of the term “Mexican food”How does one judge a Mexican restaurant? On its basics.Mexican food isn’t exotic in its ingredients nor is it overly ornate in execution of its main dishes. It’s a cuisine made by hands of a humble and hard working people.

Yum--really glad I stopped in earlier today. I love that the portions can be stand-alone or mixed/matched if you want something more substantial. For me, I was looking for a decent mid-afternoon snack, so I ordered tostadas filled w/chorizo con papas. It was very good! Yum. I am looking forward to trying other items on their menu.

I ordered takeout from Chilacates for Cinco de Mayo. I had the Taco Platewith Chicken Tinga and the 10 Inch quesadilla with Al Pastor. Overall, this place has been the best Mexican food that I have found in the area. Food tastes extremely fresh and tastes like it is made with quality ingredients.1) Taco Plate with Chicken Tinga (5/5) - very delicious with a create-your-own taco style, which was very unique.2) 10 inch quesadilla with Al Pastor (4/5) - The quesadilla was good, full review
