Uncommon Mexican street food rendered grande-size and served in simple surroundings on Beacon Hill. – The Scene
With its sponge-painted walls in shades of vibrant yellow, coral pink and lime green, and with the occasional toddler dashing about, the sunny, spartan dining room is an unfussy, homespun affair. Grab a seat at one of the 10 tiny tables and you'll probably be greeted warmly by owner Juan Montiel himself.
Beware those who have small appetites or tender taste buds; Montiel believes in delivering his dishes generously sized and spiced. Pombazo's Portale is a fiery house specialty, modeled on a traditional sandwich served in Mexican street markets, stuffed with chorizo, mashed potatoes, lettuce and cheese,and smothered with powerful sabroso house salsa. Two can easily share one of the Gigante Huaraches, a pre-Columbian treat built upon a mammoth corn dough shell that can be filled with everything from skirt steak to mushrooms and epazote herbs.
