Taqueria Chili Verde

mchan02 | Dec 21, 2006 01:29 AM

After a long mourning period for Balazo on Mint St., some co-workers and I decided to give Taqueria Chili Verde a try for lunch today. While I do miss all of the veggie options at Balazo, Chili Verde seems like it will be a good replacement. Two of us (myself included) ordered the Shrimp Burrito, which had 12 pieces (specified on the menu) of freshly grilled shrimp. Surprisingly, there were more shrimp than beans. It also hd slices of fresh avocado and some nice little jalapeño bits which added a good bite. The tortilla was a little soft for my taste, but the contents made up for it.

My other co-worker ordered the Veggie Burrito, which he said was good but, unlike Balazo, didn't contain yummy grilled vegetables, just rice and beans and tomato.

Any other good seafood/veggie options that you guys have had? It looked like they had a bunch of shrimp dishes, which I'm excited to try. I think next time I go I'll get some tacos.
