2011 BEST Burrito

El Pelón

The Fenway area suffered greatly when this beloved taqueria was lost to fire twice in recent years. Thankfully, it reopened in Brighton, and the owners have promised a new Fenway location soon. In the meantime, head out to Comm. Ave. and snatch up an "El Guapo," a hefty rollup packed tight with carne asada, black beans, rice, and, oh yes, fried plantains.
