Tapatio in E Somerville, new Tibetan in Davis

Tried the new Tibetan place in Davis and wasn't too impressed. My friend had one of the soups, i forget which one, it was white and creamy and reminded me of a cross between lobster sauce and cream of wheat. I wasn't a huge fan, but I can see how someone might get hooked on it. I had the spicy chicken with oyster sauce lunch special, with rice. Lunch specials are served with two fried vegetarian moma (very good) and a slaw like salad (also very tasty). The chicken dish was not spicy and not too interesting, tasted sort of like something I would make at home. However, it WAS made well, and the ingredients were fresh and tasty (mushrooms and 4 colors of peppers: red, orange, yellow, green). Service was very friendly, and the prices were reasonable. I might go back, but I would try something else. I am curious to hear what people have liked here. Also, I forget the name of this restaurant, if someone knows it that would be great.

Last night had an EXCELLENT Salvadoran dinner at Tapatio on Broadway in E. Somerville, my friend and I shared an order of 2 pupusas (3 dollars?) and one of the special "Plato Tapatio" plates (8.99). WAY TOO MUCH food but SUPER good. Plato Tapatio included pretty much anything I wanted: two corn tortillas, huge piece of tender and juicy chicken, generous piece of steak, small piece of pork, two fried plantains, fried yuca, rice and beans, fresh salsa and THEN a whole other plate with lettuce, cilantro, onions, GUACAMOLE, sour cream, tomatoes. The cheese pupusas are big and overflowing with cheese, served with a generous portion of tomato sauce and slaw. An excellent bargain and friendly service. We each had a guava juice as well and the grand total was less than 15 dollars. Tapatio is on Broadway in E Somerville, almost all the way to Sullivan Sq. T station.
