Tamper Cafe (Boston Ave @ Winthrop St in Medford) has starting serving dinner from 6-9 pm (I think, contact them to confirm the hours). The food is some version of Mexican cuisine that is unfamiliar to me - entrees consist of a variety of fillings layered between two fresh pieces of masa, which are griddled on both sides with of crust of oaxaca cheese. A small bowl of tasty black bean soup along with numerous bowls of toppings for the entree (sour cream, guacamole, pico de gallo, lettuce, and a salsa) are included.
I had the Morelian which was very tasty - filling was a combo of a dried salted beef and a spicy pork sausage. If anything, the entree was too large - I had trouble finishing it. Given the location (nest to Tufts), Tamper might do better with smaller serving sizes and lower prices.
Tamper also has a small (3 taps?) draught beer selection. I enjoyed a tasty saison from the Aeronaut brewery with dinner.
