CITRUS & SALT
If you couldn’t tell by his vibrant blue hair, Jason Santos is constantly keeping the creative juices flowing, and Citrus and Salt is no exception.
The never-ending summer vibe is infectious, with bottles upon bottles of tequila, tacos, and eye popping colors.
Being a coastal Mexican restaurant this is definitely the place you want to be on Cinco de Mayo. We have the great killer tequila cocktails, great tacos, and quick easy tapas style plates.
The tapas based menu makes this the perfect spot for sharing plates with your friends over great conversation.
The Mexican Street Corn is a staple. Smothered in flaming hot Cheetos and smoked mayo… trust me, this one will blow you away.
The scallop dish we have is somewhat traditional in the sense of scallop and bacon but we put out own little flair on it with a crushed fried almond, a nice syruped hibiscus flower, and a refreshing agave aioli.
Elevate your meal and order the Lobster Tostada. The tender lobster meat is tossed in a brown butter aioli with fresh mango salsa, avocados, fried leeks and micro greens. It’s a clean, light dish but will fill you right up.
Don’t forget to drink up! We suggest any of their frozen margaritas or their special frozen mimosa – perfect for brunch or really any time of day.
You can find Citrus and Salt at One Forty-Two Berkeley Street and online at Citrus and Salt Boston dot com.
El Pelon has been a staple in the Fenway neighborhood for over twenty years. It’s the place to go when you’re craving authentic Mexican street food.
The menu has mostly remained the same over the years, with a few additions to keep the regulars intrigued.
If you’re looking to share with the group, go with the Plantains. They’re fried and served with house-made fire roasted salsa to balance out the sweet flavor of the plantain.
The El Guapo Burrito is one of the biggest sellers at El Pelon. Grilled steak, Mexican rice, black beans, fried plantains, jack cheese, fire roasted salsa, romain lettuce and Hood sour cream are all packed in to to make this an unforgettable dish.
With a lot of spicy things, we try to cool it down with crema, which is a traditional Mexican dish where we take hood sour cream and mix it together with buttermilk. The nice creamy texture of hood sour cream really takes the heat off and balances it out nicely.
Customers go crazy for the fried fish tacos. The spice encrusted cod is topped with chile mayo, limed onions, pickled cabbage and cucumbers. You’ll love this one.
Whether it’s Cinco de Mayo or you’re just craving a hearty burrito, El Pelon is the place for you.
Located at Ninety-Two Peterborough Street in Boston and online at El Pelon dot com.
