Since moving to Boston one of the things I crave most is good Mexican food. There is a typical ‘Family Mexican’ place right by the office, which is alright, but not great. So I did some hunting on the interwebs for best Mexican food in Boston and Anna’s Taqueria was listed by a number of places for having the best burrito’s in Boston. Just happened to be in Sommerville with one of the many Anna’s Taqueria locations and decided to try it out. I got a steak burrito with rice, cheese, salsa, hot sauce, refried beans, and lettuce. One thing that surprised me is how small it was. Not the massive burritos I am accustom to back home in Seattle or some I got in L.A., got some chips and a coke as well. The burrito itself was great. The steak was well seasoned, the mixture of the salsa, cheese, and refried beans made for great filler. Overall it really hit the spot and made me think that Boston does have some good Mexican places to eat. The chips were tasty too!

I went out to the Middle East Underground for the Bishop Allen and Mt. St. Helens Vietnam Band show on Friday night. The bands were going to take the stage fairly late, so my friend and I wondered around to find a place to eat. We decided to grab some Indian food at Shalimar of India right on Mass Ave. I haven’t seen very many Indian places in Boston yet, so it was nice to grab some tasty Chicken Tikka Masala. Pretty good chicken, the sauce was a little thick, but still pretty good. I got medium for spice, and it wasn’t too bad at all. The portions were a little on the small side, but enough to hold me over until I got home after the show. I need to find more Indian places in Boston.
