A Little Bit About a Lot of Things

A lifestyle blog with a focus on my food adventures

I follow Free Food Boston’s blog, and towards the end of last year there were a lot of posts about Dorado Taco’s…talking about how fantastic their brunch was. It only took me what, 5 months to get there? Check out the Free Food Boston Post on Dorado.

We arrived on a Saturday morning at around 11:30 am. Inside, there are enough seating for about 15 and some counter seats by the window. The space is bright and clean.

There were a lot of college kids there-the price is right after all. You know they weren’t from around the area when you can hear them say that they were surprised that Zaftig’s had an hour wait!

I ordered the breakfast quesadillas, 12 inch flour tortilla with three cheeses, scrambled eggs, & salsa fresca (for $4.50) and for a $1 more, I added spicy portabella mushrooms (you can get House-made pork chorizo, Grilled marinated steak, Grilled marinated chicken, and Grilled zucchini & red peppers each for just a  dollar more). You can also add Guacamole +.75, add Sour Cream +.50, Add Rice & Beans +1.00, and Add Patatas Bravas +2.00. There was really great flavor in the quesadilla-the cheese was melted and the eggs were fluffy and light. I love the spicy mushrooms-they weren’t “hot” spicy, as in burn your lips, but they had  more of a warm spice.

My dining companion had the 2 breakfast taco plate ($6.25) that come with scrambled eggs, salsa fresca & guacamole, rice and black beans. The tacos come with two tortillas each, and you definitely need them because there is so much filling inside-it’s a little hard to eat them politely. The beans also had a warm spice flavor to them-as in, it doesn’t hit you right away but warms the back of your throat.

We had a really great breakfast there-the food was excellent-the service was quick and efficient-and the best part….they serve beer! (and sangria). We can’t wait to go back and try the other things on the menu!
