El Centro Dos Pt. Dos

When I was little, we would go to Mexico almost every summer. Now that I'm older, I seriously miss it - the warm beaches, blue sky, and amazing food! Mexican food isn't really Boston's forte when it comes to cuisine. New England-ers are more about their seafood and lobster rolls (which are delicious). But there are a few really great Mexican restaurants, and El Centro Dos in Brookine is one of them.

I ordered the Chicken Enchiladas with salsa verde, which was pretty phenomenal and super filling. No skimping on any ingredients or sauces here!

This dish consisted of pork in a salsa verde sauce with orange rice. Orange rice is always my favorite!

I love how El Centro Dos is about more than just the food. They really put in effort to give the feel of Mexico in their entire restaurant. It's a very cozy atmosphere, filled with great artwork, a little bar in the back, and the cutest bathroom I've ever seen, seriously. There's even potpourri along the sink and even more artwork to gaze at. I definitely recommend a meal here, whether for a romantic date night, or a casual night with friends or family.

Comment Challenge: Is there any food that gives you that great nastalgic feeling?

  6. Ohhh this looks SO good. We don't have any decent Mexican restaurants where I live (does Taco Bell actually count?). I can't wait to move to a bigger city to have an array of options like this.

  8. Those pictures are mouthwatering!! I have to admit, I'll take seafood and lobster rolls pretty much over anything anytime of the day, but that Mexican food looks so good. Plus I do love Mexican restaurants that go the whole nine yards and have perfect backdrops as well!
