I feel like I’m not a real foodie when I say I love Anna’s – but I DO! Don’t get me wrong – my favorite Mexican place in Boston is still Cantina La Mexicana. However, Anna’s does some things really well, and for the price and speed, it’s totally worth it.
One of my favorite items to get is the Al Pastor Taco (shown above). For only $1.70 each, these mini tacos are packed with spicy and flavorful pork, tons of cilantro, chopped onions, and red spicy sauce. Squeeze a bit of lime on top, and you’re in heaven. All for only $3.40.
What a bargain.
Other favorites: the quesadillas are HUGE. They are essentially huge burritos that are grilled with cheese. YUM – So good, but really heavy. You might not be able to eat dinner after having one of those!
I really like the chile verde meat option, which is braised pork, roasted with a variety of hot peppers. It’s really flavorful and more juicy than the plain carnitas (roasted pork with traditional Mexican seasonings).
Sometimes, if I am feeling healthy, I will get 1/2 and 1/2 grilled vegetables and chile verde. I tried 1/2 grilled vegetables and 1/2 carnitas, but it was not as flavorful.
Add-ons can quickly increase the cost of the burrito. For example, adding guacamole will set you back an additional 75 cents, sour cream 55 cents, and cheese, 65 cents.
Over all, this is a great place to go if you need yummy and cheap food FAST. Sure beats McDonalds.
