12 fantastic sandwiches in Boston
1 Lansdowne Street, Boston. 617-421-9595.
In the marginalia of this taquerias busy menu which trains the spotlight squarely on (duh) the tacos lurks the sandwich holy grail. Some sleuthing is required. First, pan down past the famous grilled corn, to the left of the Mexican flatbread. See Torta Plate? Good. But the next step is the doozy. Choices of filling are front-loaded with the siren-song likes of chorizo and carnitas. Strength! The seventh (and dead-last) option is the chile relleno. A cheese-stuffed poblano cooked just short of disintegrating, the magnificent mess is deposited onto a griddled roll with extra cheese, beans, avocado, mayo and smoky-sweet chipotle molasses.
