without getting into a whole discussion about how "Latin" food encompasses the food of lots and lots of cultures, I didn't want rely on the more generic "Mexican food" description because the Boston area seems to have very few establishments that actually focus on the varied cuisine of the Mexican states so I expanded my search to include more of the Latin countries.
Getting to the point, what are your favorite Latin restaurants in the area? Here are mine in no particular order.
Picante (pretty much for the salsa bar)
--I need to find out more about the Eastie ones.
sometimes Tacos El Charro (hit or miss)
Jose's? (borderline, only been once)
Also, which restaurant would you say is your go-to sit down type restaurant? I still haven't tried Tu Y Yo.
