Best of Boston

2024 Best Neighborhood Restaurant, East Boston

Angela’s Café

Locals flock to both Eastie locations of this Mexican favorite for crowd-pleasers such as fresh, high-quality guacamole, ceviches, tacos, and burritos. But the best reasons to visit are the rare in-Boston flavors of Puebla, seen in the menu’s rajas poblanas (shredded peppers with sour cream and queso fresco), Adobo-marinated tacos arabes, and dishes sauced with ravishingly complex moles, pipiáns, and tingas.
