“For Boston, this is the year of Mexican cooking and a modern approach to Latino cooking."

La Verdad’s pescado tacos have an instant advantage: handmade tortillas. When we arrive at the taqueria, a woman is scooping up dough, patting it out, and cooking it on the griddle.

The most consistent thing at this taqueria is the tacos, which come in 12 varieties, from tongue to lobster. They're not always perfect, but they are easily the tastiest thing going on Lansdowne Street (and that includes you, Miss Glittery Minidress). The tongue taco, for example, contains dense, deeply smoky bits of meat, offset by a bit of bright lime. Carne asada features chewy chunks of grilled skirt steak with the concentrated flavor of a demi-glace. Caramelized onions complement the steak but don't overwhelm it. And the fish in the pescado tacos is lightly battered and cleanly fried, though its delicate flavor is sometimes drowned out by the avocado wedged next to it in the tortilla.

Great Authentic Mexican!

This place has improved 100% since my last visit! The Carne Asada & Fish Taco's are the best in the city. The margarita was great and being able to experiment with what I think is at least 50 different Tequila's even made the drinks better. Kind of nice now that The Sox season is over, it's a much nicer atmosphere, more personalized service. And $2 taco Tuesdays will be my spot for dinner.
