El Pelon Taqueria - more Americanized than authentic

lemondrop | Nov 17, 2005 11:10 PM

A friend and I recently ate at El Pelon Taqueria in the Fenway area because of the recommendations on this board. My friend had the El Guapo burrito while I had the carnitas burrito. The burritos were far from being authentic Mexican. It was also odd how the El Guapo had plaintains in it. (Isn't that more Cuban than Mexican?) The horchata was watered down and you could hardly taste the cinnamon. Their website having pictures of the Eiffel Tower and Notre Dame right on the main page, I shouldn't have been surprised. Needless to say, the owners aren't even Mexican...
