Cheap Eats: Taco Tuesday at La Verdad

My kinda Tuesday night

I’ve been going to La Verdad for a while. It’s kinda sad I haven’t written about this before.  I guess on some subconscious level I don’t want the world knowing, for fear La Verdad will turn into Ken Oringer’s other impossibly–hard–to–get–a–seat incredible hotspot Toro.  I can’t have that. I need these tacos.

So La Verdad does Taco Tuesdays every Tuesday night.  Tacos for $1. Yup, $1. You can get up to five, and you have a choice between the Tinga, stewed chicken with lettuce, radish, and sour cream, or Carnitas, shredded pork topped with red onion, cilantro, and salsa verde (above).  The Russian and I usually start off with some chips and salsa, which are also $5, to go with our beers.  The salsas, a red, a green, and a pico de gallo, are all addicting.I had to stop myself from eating them.

Then comes the tacos.  You would think five isn’t enough, but these are generously filled and I can never eat all five.  Luckily The Russian is there to pick up the slack.

He lives a hard life eating these tinga tacos.

The best part is, this is a stone’s throw from my house and right across the street from Fenway Park.  They don’t do Taco Tuesdays when there is a home game, but when Taco Tuesday rolls around, its an awesome way to spruce up the middle of the week.
