La Mère Germaine
AS FEATURED IN...
From the From the May 2008 Food & Wine Go List
In business for a half-century, this cantina has an appealingly raucous, authentic feel, from its brightly colored Talavera tiles and blaring jukebox to its dependably tasty Mexican comfort food.
We loved: Stewed pork shank.
Insider tip: La Mascota offers abundant quantities of some of the city's best (tapas), like meatballs in chile sauce, for free with drinks during lunch hour (2-5 p.m.).
Tune in on Wednesdays at 10PM ET for Top Chef: Boston, the 12th season of Bravo's Emmy-Award winning, hit reality series.
