La Verdad

So based on a few rumors that La Verdad (the new Ken Oringer/John Delpha Mexican place on Lansdowne Street - next to Tequila Rain/under Jillians) might be open, we ventured there last night to check and see if they were right. It is indeed open, although at least as of last night, they are not serving the whole menu. They had a few small plates and many different types of tacos available, but the large plates and desserts were not yet available. We started with guacamole - it was pretty good and came with awesome chips (the waitress said they were made in house with handmade tortillas). We next had "toro corn" - yes, the same corn as they have at Toro with the lime, cheese, spice, etc. Yum! It also made me wonder where they were able to get pretty decent corn on the cob in April. We each ordered a couple of different types of tacos - I ordered a baja-style fish one and a shrimp one, my husband tried the chorizo and carnitas ones. They were all very tasty and "fresh". We especially liked the fish and chorizo ones. I also really appreciate that they come separate since I tend like to try many different things. We also got two fish tacos brought over to our table to try on the house - I am not exactly sure why. The service overall was good - the only complaint would be slightly over-agressive bussing (they kept taking and replacing the essentially clean little plates we had in front of us), but I guess maybe they were just a bit bored since it was fairly empty but had lots of people working. Overall it was a pretty good deal - for two beers, a margarita, guac+chips, 2 ears of corn and 4 tacos of various sorts the total before tip was $38. I would certainly go back.
