I have to take a group of French exchange students to lunch in Lowell, in the context of a tour on the city's history and immigrant groups.
I thought of ending with a lunch at a Cambodian or Laotian place, as a significant recent immigrant group -- either Simply Khmer or Phien's Kitchen -- based on recs from the board.
However, someone pointed out to me that France is full of Cambodian places, b/c of the French colonial connections to the area. They suggested looking for Mexican places, since that is something this is missing in Europe.
I did a quick search for Lowell, and only saw a quick mention that a place called Mr. Jalepeno is supposed to be good, but no recent reports with more detail. Can anyone provide a more detailed report? Or do you all have any suggestions for other good Mexican or other Central American regional places in Lowell?
