It’s Cinco de Mayo, and what better way to celebrate Mexican-American heritage than with fresh Mexican food.
An excellent choice is Roxanne’s Taqueria in Stoughton, billed as specializing in Mexican street food. This means tasty, fast offerings that are also easy on the wallet, with nothing costing more than $10. The added bonus at Roxanne’s is that all dishes are made with fresh, local ingredients prepared by folks who love to feed their friends and neighbors.
Chef-owner Jesse Rosen, 23, of Stoughton and business partner Josh Katz, 29, of Sharon opened Roxanne’s in August 2012. After months of thinking of a name for their venture, these two single guys decided to name it after Katz’s dog, a pitbull. Rosen developed a passion for cooking while working in restaurants during high school. He graduated from the Culinary Institute of America in New York in 2011 and was eager to put his talents to the test. Full story for BostonGlobe.com subscribers.
