El Centro: Awful. Boston, terrible food city.

sak2011 | Apr 20, 201405:57 PM     196

Terrible. Had tacos al pastor and 3 other tacos. Overstuffed tacos with wet bland goop. All of them tasted the same - soggy.

Wife had beef in molacetes. Very salty and with oddly dry beef floating in a onion tomato sauce.

Michelada was the high point. Smoky and spicy with right amount of lime - the beer, to its credit, was cold.

Overall a terrible mexican meal.

However, not surprising - this is Boston after all. On a related topic, I've lived here since 2008 and I've had only four meals worth the parking expense - Strip T's 2X and Ribelle, maybe erbaluce. This is just an awful food city. I lived in Philly and Bklyn before. Great restaurants in every neighborhood, at least one gem. I have no idea why a city with this much wealth and relatively cosmopolitan culture can breed such awful middling cuisine. I'm done. I'll eat out every 3 months when I can travel back to NYC or Philly.
