La Brasa

The girls and I have been on a roll these last few months with making reservations to visit the Somerville up-and-comers! First there was Sarma, followed by Bronwyn and now La Brasa! With excellent chefs at the helm offering unique dishes of varied cuisines, Boston's neighboring city is lucky to have them all. La Brasa itself draws on a wide influence - mexican, peruvian, spanish, chinese - a grand mixture of flavors from all over. 

{What we ate}

mexican fried rice with charred scallions, fava beans, radishes, cilantro
tacos de carnitas - slow roasted pork shoulder with salsa verde & chile de arbol
artisanal cheese with ginger-rhubarb chutney
a table-side cart delivers prime rib with cilantro chimichuri
smoked bone in pork milanese with mushy peas
swiss chard pie with colorado chile, coddled farm fresh egg, spanish ham & piperade
fried soft shell crab special with arugula & cherries
that fried rice again. it was my favorite. tacos de carnitas were second.
la brasa fried chicken with escargot-brown butter viniagrette, parsley and fresh horseradish
butterscotch pudding with Rice Krispies
