On our first night in Boston, we decided to go to Casa Romero in the Back Bay area. We heard they had some great authentic Mexican food. It took us a while to find this place because it was hidden in an alley of a residential area.
We didn’t make any reservations, but they were able to seat us right away. We got quite lucky because the restaurant was packed. The only issue that bothered us as we entered was the Host, he seemed a bit rude.
Since it was a nice day, we decided to eat outside in their patio.
Complementary tortilla chips and salsa come to the table. It’s freshly made and very delicious. You can also order a side of guacamole for $7.50.
Ceviche ($9) of Fresh Fish with Tomatoes, and Onions in a Citrus Marinated. It also have a lime and avocado on top. I enjoyed the tart taste that accompanied the dish, I just wish it had a bit more sourness to it. CanuckGirl thought this was a strange dish…so I had it all to myself!
Casa Romero’s Legendary Signature Dish – Puerco Adobado en Chipotle y Naranja ($25) has a tenderloin of Pork Marinated in Oranges and Smoked Chipotle Peppers. It also comes with a side of rice and beans. CanuckGirl loved it, but I wasn’t a big fan of the dish. It really comes down to personal preferences. The pork was nice and tender.
Overall, this restaurant was nice and pretty good ambiance for a date type of situation.
Words of Wisdom:
- Make reservations to guarantee seats
