Casa Romero is a more upscale Mexican restaurant in back bay near the Prudential Center. We love coming here for their Early Bird special, which is an incredible value. As long as you order before 6pm and leave by 7pm, you can enjoy a 3-course prix-fixe menu for only $21.95. Considering that most of the entrees are around $20, this is a great value.
Bryan ordered the shrimp flautas as his appetizer. Although he said they were good, he admitted that he liked the flautas at Cantina Le Mexicana better. Hmmm . . I'm seeing a trend here.
I ordered the special of the day: garlic mushroom cream soup, which was very flavorful. I really liked it, and I don't think I've ever had this soup at any other Mexican restaurant before.
Dessert! The best part! I love flan, and this flan did not disappoint. The burnt sugar sauce surrounding the flan was deeply flavorful, and I found myself licking the sauce even after I had finished the flan.
Over all, I think Casa Romero is a solid restaurant. It offers some more creative options that you won't typically find in a more casual Mexican restaurant. I'm not sure how I would feel about this meal if I had paid the regular dinner price. In that case, I would possibly just opt to go to Cantina Le Mexicana instead. Nevertheless, if you are in the area, it's worth checking out.
