November 8, 2013 Felipe’s
Located in The Garage in Harvard Square, Felipe’s will move out in March to the old Bertucci’s space when their lease is up. They will nearly double their size and offer beer and wine at their new location. Felipe’s is owned by Tom Brush, who owns the nearby Flat Patties. Tom’s daughter owns Crema Cafe which is also near by. Felipe Herrera helped establish Anna’s Taqueria before striking out on his own with Brush.
Felipe’s current location is a little tight on space. Service was quick and efficient – we were in and out in no time. How does it compare to Anna’s you ask? I think that they are pretty much neck and neck.
I love that at Felipe’s you can get a handful of corn on your burrito, at Anna’s, they don’t always have corn. The steak at Felipe’s is a bit more tender but the rice here is a little on the dry side. I dig the amount of choices that you have here as far as toppings go, but on a crowded night, I think having too many options can be a bad thing. Have you ever been to Anna’s and know what you want, and yet you get stuck behind someone who can’t decide what they want? It’s painful. They should seriously have one line for regulars and one side for newbies. I digress…Overall, for the price, Felipe’s was a good meal. My dining companion for the night actually preferred Felipe’s to Anna’s. Which is your favorite?
