Why Singles in Boston are Ditching Their Current Dating Apps…
When it rains, it pours especially on National Tequila Day. So yesterday what better way to celebrate than to indulge on tacos, tequila and margaritas. And the place to be last left an impression, so I give to you, the Yellow Door Taqueria!
Yellow Door Taqueria
What used to be Dark Horse Antiques nestled in Dorchester's iconic Lower Mills has now transformed into a cantina full of Mexi-Cali flavor that breathes new life into an area that has seen a recent growth into the modern day.
From it's rustic decor to the hispanic and latino vibes from the music playing, Yellow Door becomes a tour-de-force with a wide selection of ceviche, salads and their tacos; all served on made in-house tortillas with various flavors rotating by the season, from vegetable, seafood, carnitas, braised beef and pork, even gluten-free options. (Taco fans rejoice!)
My experience here was one not to forget. Walking in it was simple, and they were packed. Great signs of an opening day. We got seated quickly and our server was a total charm! I quickly got lost in the moment of it all, ordering fish tacos and about 1...2...3 tequila shots and the margaritas keep flowing after that. The food itself was great, and when they say made in-house tortillas, they meant it. Rich flavor, good portions and great combinations of ingredients made it a meal to remember.
The menu is definitely fairly priced around $4-$5 for a single taco, $12 for their specialty cocktails and $11 for a margaritas, but the menu offers a lot with a wide selection of craft beers on tap, a good selection of imported cervezas in bottles and a fair sized wine list of a few brands I recognized to be enjoyable.
In the end epic decor of luchador masks lining the shelves, the Spanish beats, the flowing tequila, great service and the trip to flavor town all made our hefty bill worth it and Yellow Door Taqueria certainly feels like an oasis away from home.
You can count on me to be back and certainly all of you young (BOS)tonians need to check it out!
Yellow Door Taqueria is open from 4 p.m. to 1 a.m. Sun-Wed and till 2 a.m. Thurs-Sat.
Located at 2297 Dorchester Ave, Boston, MA 02124
Eataly Restaurant has been the talk of Boston and SB was lucky enough to get an exclusive sneek peek experience last week.
If you love coffee, crepes, wine, etc... you will be here ALL. THE. TIME. Forget Hong Kong (kidding).
Fresh pasta and pizza, desserts, a wine bar, fresh produce market, delicatessen, butcher shop, fish mongers, bakery, restaurant, espresso bar and tiramisu to DIE for. There’s way too much to list so check out pics from our tour and see for yourself.
To top it all off they are committed to Boston and to working with just local producers, whenever possible 🎉
Doors officially open tomorrow, November 29th at 4pm. Tell them Secret Boston sent you :)
68) On Wednesday nights throughout the year, at Coit Observatory, you can observe the night sky in ways you would otherwise not be able to. Using binoculars and telescopes at this incredible place you will feel like an aspiring astronomer. It opens at 7:30 during the fall and winter, and at 8:30 during the spring and summer. Call ahead because it is weather permitting and tickets are suggested since it constantly sells out (free tickets!). Get your Aristotle on and visit this gem!
69) This wacky art installation was done by an art professor named Matthew Hincman. He calls it a "guerrilla" public art piece, which he snuck into the park in 2006. Apparently it took the City of Boston a week to notice it and not until a week after did everyone realize it was not approved. It got taken down, but not for long. He got approval from the Boston Art Commission to have it re-installed. So now it sits on the side of the pathway in the park, just waiting for the next person walking by to become curious enough to sit...or lay across...or sprawl out...whatever works.
70) The Boston Marathon has it's own museum...kinda sorta. The Boston Marathon was run for the first time in 1897, only one year after a man from the Boston Athletic Association had competed in the first Olympics in Greece. At this Adidas RunBase store on Boylston street you can find some really cool running paraphernalia (maps, photos, sneakers etc.) from some of the first runners and some recent ones too. The store also offers tons of workout classes and a running club for the more sweat-savvy. Pretty exciting stuff huh?
71) ... You know, like from the 48 hour town carnival you risk your life at every summer
