I had 15 minutes to spare in Allston tonight before some bubble tea at Infusions. I walked down Brighton Av, peered into a few restaurants, and got a few take-out menus. Reef Cafe (Lebanese) looks very good, there was a post about it recently and I am excited to try it.
A few doors down is El Burrito Taqueria, which I had never really noticed before. The menu is pretty big, and in addition to the classic burrito and Mexican options, I noticed what looked like some Colombian items. I went inside and asked the woman behind the counter whether they served Colombian food and then saw the larger menu inside with several Colombian items, including breakfast items. I didn't see any of the Colombian items, but I told her I'd be back soon to try platanos maduros con queso and the chicharon. I had just eaten a huge dinner which was why I didn't buy anything. (sorry, bad excuse)
The menu is interesting, there are Mexican items, Central American Items (like pupusas and 'tamales centro americanos') and Colombian items. Has anyone been?
El Burrito Taqueria is at 172 Brighton Av. in Allston....
