Normally I don’t get crazy excited about Mexican food, but El Potro changed my mind about that. This by far has been my best experience with Mexican food in Boston, and I’d recommend El Potro to anyone craving the Mexican comfort food and comfort vibes! Even the refried beans (I normally order all rice) were tasty and not mushy at all.
What we ordered:
Guacamole: solid guac, no complaints. They give a lot too
Tamale: presented beautifully and was delicious, packed with pork and topped with a hot sauce.
Chile Relleno: bell pepper stuffed with very juicy carnitas and topped with a nice portion of melted cheese, not skimpy but not too overwhelming. This was my boyfriend's and my favorite dish!
Enchilada Trio: 3 shredded beef enchiladas with green, red, and mole sauce. Their mole uses a semisweet chocolate (rather than the bitter dark you find at most restaurants that I don't like), this was a surprising hit for me! The red sauce one was my favorite.
We had Churros and Fried Ice Cream for dessert, and the fried ice cream was HUGE. I wouldn't have been able to finish it myself.
We were visiting here from Canada and we have a distinct lack of great Mexican food back home. This restaurant was amazing and after eating our appetizers we were so full we could barely eat our entrees. So so good!
