Best Places to Visit for Cinco de Mayo- Dining Playbook NESN

El Pelon has been a staple in the Fenway neighborhood for over twenty years. It’s the place to go when you’re craving authentic Mexican street food.

The menu has mostly remained the same over the years, with a few additions to keep the regulars intrigued.

If you’re looking to share with the group, go with the Plantains. They’re fried and served with house-made fire roasted salsa to balance out the sweet flavor of the plantain.

The El Guapo Burrito is one of the biggest sellers at El Pelon. Grilled steak, Mexican rice, black beans, fried plantains, jack cheese, fire roasted salsa, romain lettuce and Hood sour cream are all packed in to to make this an unforgettable dish.

With a lot of spicy things, we try to cool it down with crema, which is a traditional Mexican dish where we take hood sour cream and mix it together with buttermilk. The nice creamy texture of hood sour cream really takes the heat off and balances it out nicely.

Customers go crazy for the fried fish tacos. The spice encrusted cod is topped with chile mayo, limed onions, pickled cabbage and cucumbers. You’ll love this one.

Whether it’s Cinco de Mayo or you’re just craving a hearty burrito, El Pelon is the place for you.
