Calling all hounds: Angela's Cafe needs your help!

So based entirely on the reviews on this board, I drove to East Boston tonight for dinner at Angela's Cafe. I ordered the guacamole and the mole chicken plate, and it was everything that I hoped it would be. This place is what Chowhound is all about: out of the way, inexpensive, unpretentious, friendly, fresh, unique and, most of all, delicious. Sure Chowhound is useful for deciding between Aujord 'Hui and L'Esaplier for a special dinner, or for deciding whether to go for the gnocchi at No. 9 Park or the dover sole at Mistral when looking to blow $150/person on a meal, but discovering a place like Angela's is, IMHO, the real raison d'etre of the board.

The place was empty when I showed up for an early dinner tonight, so Luis, who runs the place with his family, had plenty of time to talk to me. When I asked him how business had been, he responded somewhat reservedly, saying that they've been doing "ok" and pointing out that they've only been open for four months. Angela's is too good of a place to just be doing "ok." If you haven't been yet, please try the place. With good directions or a GPS unit, it's pretty easy to find. And it's just a 10 minute walk from the Airport stop on the Blue Line. And then once you discover how great this place is, please tell all your friends. Sure it would be nice if we could always walk in and get a table right away, but the family that runs this place deserves to have its hard work and talent rewarded.

  1. Thanks for the heads up - we will definitely check it out!

    1. I agree with all the above!

        Includes EASY driving directions - 2 minutes from Sumner tunnel!

      2. Is the Blue Line still under construction on weekends? That's been seriously hampering our ability to head out to Eastie. Were it not for that issue, we'd be far more regular customers.

          1. re: makonna

            The restaurant is on the corner of Lexington and Brooks Streets. I did not find any spots on Lexington Street, but circled back around to Brooks Street (by taking a right on Putnam, another right on Saratoga, and another right on Brooks) and found plenty of spaces on the block just before getting back to Lexington Street.

          2. Sadly, all businesses exist for the purpose of generating profit, and no business "deserves" to succeed if it can't deliver what people want... it takes a pretty serious cheap eats place to survive primarily on "bridge and tunnel" customers. For example, as great as Di Fara in Brooklyn is, I don't go there every time I visit NYC, because as a restaurant gets farther away, the value of its price and flavor can only decrease. If it costs several dollars per person and an extra ~30 minutes for a couple to go to out to Eastie for dinner, that means an Eastie restaurant will need a base of Eastie customers.

              Thank you, Milton Friedman. : )

              1. I don't know why it's sad that businesses exist to generate a profit. It's kinda fundamental to our economy, eh?

              2. This is "a pretty serious cheap eats place."

              3. I never suggested that they're gonna survive primarily on "brige and tunnel" customers. Di Fara serves mostly locals, but also attracts lots of visitors from elsewhere in Brooklyn and the other boroughs.

              4. I think they're doing pretty well with the locals. I'm just trying to spread the word. Like Di Fara, I'd like to see them do well with the locals and with the "bridge and tunnel" crowd.

              1. re: Blumie

                Just trying to impart my particular view of the place. I've seen 1,001 good reviews of it on CH, but I haven't gone yet, because it's just too hard to drag myself out there when there's so much to eat in Allstocamberville.

                1. re: Luther

                  Been to Angela's twice, and think its the best and most authentic Mexican I've had in New England. Having recently scoured the Allston/Cambridge/Somerville areas for good Mexican, I'd say the trek to Eastie is worth the difference in quality.

                    1. re: Luther

                      As a Texan who lives in Allston, I assure you, Angela's is more than worth the whopping half-hour it takes to get there from Packards Corner via the T. Yes, there are plenty of lovely things to eat here in my neighborhood -- Brighton Avenue has the highest concentration of Chow in the city right now -- but there is nothing even remotely comparable to Angela's here.

                      1. re: BarmyFotheringayPhipps

                        30 min on the B line to blue line to Angela's? The MBTA gods are obviously with you.

                        1. re: Joanie

                          We struggle about this all the time. He insists that it's only about 20 minutes from Packard's Corner to Park Street, which it is, if you don't count waiting time, the train is not crowded, and traffic is clear. In actual fact it took us about 45 minutes last Saturday night, but we were extremely lucky in our connections and traffic was pretty light.

                          1. re: Allstonian

                            If you get off the t at the maverick stop its closer than the airport stop. It is also only like 15 minutes including walking once you get on the t at government center.

                            1. re: redjustinsox

                              Angela's absolutely is NOT closer to the Maverick station. The Airport station is the closest.

                      2. re: Luther

                        For me, Angela's is the best new restaurant in the Boston area for 2007. I go there once every couple of weeks, and I drive in from outside 128. It's just a few minutes beyond Santarpio's. Having lived in California for a while, the Mexican food scene here has been disappointing. There are a few places here that are pretty good, but not outstanding. Angela's is outstanding. If you want a taste of one of the world's great cuisines, go to Angela's.

                        1. re: junior coyote

                          I sincerely hope that Angela's succeeds and lasts until all of the new condos and apartments go in along the waterfront and the water trasport is restored to East Boston. Once the area around Maverick is finished and we have the additional residents they should do quite well as the food is excellent as are the prices.

                          With the wonderful art galleries that have opened here in Eastie there is more to attract visitors. We're making the rounds again this weekend of the New England Gallery of Latin American Art, the Atlantic Works gallery and the new 80 Border Street cultural exchange center.

                    2. re: Luther

                      Luther - seriously, I get the Difara's reference. I can't get my husband out there when we're in NY. For example, I convinced him to take the 20-minute cab ride to Lotus of Siam in Vegas - which he thought was fantastic, but we haven't been back to since because he hates 'going off the strip'. BUT, he's not a Chowhound. However, from your posts - you certainly are. To post in response to Blumie's threads just to reply and say you've never been there because "it's too hard to drag myself out there"? You're kidding, right? I know from all the wonderful info you've shared, that you love food.

                      The whole 'credo' of CH is -

                      "Everyone has one in his life: the brother-in-law with a collection of 800 takeout menus, the co-worker who's late from lunch because she HAD to trek to one end of town for soup and to the other for a sandwich.

                      http://www.chowhound.com/manifesto

                      I'd hope you don't miss out on this wonderful place that, personally, I found out about on this very board. Order the guacamole, then maybe a ceviche or tinga tostada, or a salad with nopales, and finish with one of the nightly specials - I'm partial to the adobo, or maybe the enchiladas, or delicious pipian, but I love the mole too.......

                    3. I went again tonight and this time took the Blue Line, which was very easy. Take it to the Airport station. Assuming you're coming from Boston, you must go upstairs and cross over the tracks and exit the station on the "inbound" side. (When you exit the train, you either can go up the escalator before going out the turnstyles and then exit the station on the other side, or you can go out the turnstyles and up the stairs on the far right, where you'll see a sign directing you to Bremen Street.) Continue following the signs for the Bremen Street exit, which will put you at the edge of a park. Follow the path directly through the park to the street (Bremen Street) that you'll see on the far side. Directly across the street you'll see an auto body shop called Gino's. This is the corner of Bremen Street and Brooks Street. Walk six blocks up Brooks Street to Lexington Street, and Angela's will be on the near lefthand corner.

                      1. Darn! Have to deliver someone to the airport this evening, and Angela's isn't open on Sunday night. To be honest, this restaurant is on the top of my list of "must try soon," but convincing my DC's to travel hasn't been easy. Clearly, I must simply put it on the calendar and GO.

                          i've loved the food but have only made it that way twice. wonder why those of you who know luis and love the place haven't suggested moving it to allston/brighton where it would thrive. i know they've put a lot of love and money into this location but i don't see it happening at that space and it seems ridiculous for such a good place not to succeed. move it to a food zone like allston and it would be everfull

                        2. Well, it was packed today for lunch. had to wait about 15 minutes for a table for three. I had a delicious carne asada special that was a good sized new york strip steak, black beans, pico, and a delicious sauteed peppers and onion relish (or something) for $12.95. Just awesome. Also started with a taco arabes that was phenomenal! My DCs had the mole enchiladas. We loved everything. I can't wait to go back. How is the chilaquiles? I was going to order that until I heard him mention the steak special.

                            We went last Sunday for lunch around noon and the place was packed with families eating breakfast (mostly of the eggs-and-toast variety). We had to ask for the lunch menu which only had a couple of Mexican options on it -- no mole or anything. Most of the interesting dishes were on the specials board (tacos arabes etc.) but we didn't see some of the dishes mentioned in previous posts here. Is the dinner menu substantially more interesting than the lunch menu, or are folks mostly ordering from the specials board?

                            1. re: Sgt Snackers

                              The specials board, and also you should ask for daily specials that are not on that board--which today, for example, were pork in adobo, "Spanish" meatballs in a chipotle gravy, shrimp in tomatillo sauce, and some other stuff I forget because we didn't order it. The printed menu is not much use. Dinner is the same as lunch. (tamerlanenj, that may have been our table you got, sorry we dawdled! There were 3 tables of hounds when we were there. Sounds like you got the rajas with your steak, can be ordered separately, highly rec'd.)

                              1. re: Aromatherapy

                                Ah yes, must have been the rajas con crema. Such a good accompaniment. I was putting it on top of the steak, sort of like a relish...probably not what I'm supposed to do but it was good.

                            2. re: tamerlanenj

                              From speaking with Luis, it sounds like they do a decent weekend breakfast/lunch business with the locals. The fact that it was packed but you could still get a table in 15 minutes sounds like a nice balance to me!

                              1. re: Blumie

                                Thanks for the tip. I appreciate good leads... even if it means a trip from the suburbs into Eastie. This is why I live in (near) the city! Maybe I'll drag some of my chowish suburban friends on a night when we can get there!(and find parking!

                            3. Well, I just read everyone's comments and I am persuaded. I will get over my laziness and get down to East Boston. Thanks for the tip.

                              1. We're lucky enough to live a short bus ride away from Angela's, so we've been going quite regularly. Our last meal there was on Saturday night, so I thought I'd write a brief review.

                                We started out with two tacos arabes, which I literally have daily cravings for. It is a really simple seasoned pork (?) wrapped in a warm tortilla and served with chipotle sauce (which itself is so delicious I would take a bath in it).

                                For our meals, I had a chiles rellenos which was surprisingly disappointing. The outer breading was soggy and tasted of oil, like it had been fried and then left to sit. This is definitely an anomaly. The rice and beans it was served with were excellent and very flavorful.

                                My partner ordered the special of steak with pico de gallo. Absolutely wonderful. It was ordered med-rare and perfectly cooked. The pico was a great addition. Very very good.

                                For dessert, we split the rice pudding which is always wonderful. A gently flavored pudding topped with some mango sauce and cinnamon. It is swoon worthy. Mmmm.

                                Overall, a great trip (with the exceptions of the chiles). If you haven't been, I'd absolutely suggest you give it a shot. And, echoing the other posters, please do give the specials a shot. Luis tries really hard to made a meal that will be memorable for each of his customers!!

                                  I agree competely -- had lunch there a few days ago:
                                  stuffed poblano -- soggy mess.
                                  tacos arabes -- superb, especially the salsa.
                                  looking to try more.

                                  1. re: aecs

                                    That's odd -- I ordered the chiles rellenos on Saturday night precisely because I could see your plate from our table and they looked tasty, and sure enough, mine were! Mine were absolutely dead fresh, however, and that might have made all the difference. I thought they were excellent and I actually don't even care for chiles rellenos most of the time: they're a dish quite often better in theory than practice.

                                    1. re: aecs

                                      Funny, I've never had a crisp chile relleno. The batter is an egg batter that is soft and soaks up the great sauce.

                                    2. I would not try to go there again without phoning in advance to be sure that they aren't running a private party, with the main door locked. This might happen anywhere, but considering how much of a hike it is to get out there from Somerville, it certainly put me off casually going over there again.

                                      While my party considered its next move, we stood right outside the door but apart from our initial attempt to open it, we did not disturb them. Now, if I were serving on the other side of that unfrosted glass door you can bet I would make some attempt to apologise to potential customers who had made a wasted journey. I was surprised they didn't, despite our being in clear view.

                                      We can recommend the Pho place at the other end of that street, though.

                                        2. My wife and I ate here this past Saturday night for dinner. We started off with the Guacamole which was delicious. My wife ordered the Chicken Mole Enchiladas and me the Carne Asada. The Mole was perfect, and honestly one of the best I have tasted in a long time. The Carne Asada was a generous portion and was seasoned and cooked pretty much flawlessly.

                                          Luis told us that they had two desserts available so we had one of each, both the Rice Pudding and the Crepe where very tasty.

                                          Luis sat down and spoke to us afterwards for a while as well and was a pleasure to shoot the breeze with.

                                          We are extremely happy to have found Angela's in Boston since moving from Florida where we knew all the great Mexican spots in town. Plus it doesn't hurt that we live a few blocks away from the State Street Station so its easy to hop on the blue line and get up there in no time.

                                          1. I drool every time I read a post about Angela's. Like other posters the location has been a bit of a deterrent but I am committed to going...soon. There is a tentative plan to make a trip to Eastie tomorrow, however, my DC and myself are vegetarians (we eat fish & dairy). I've taken note of at least one shrimp dish, does Angela's have any other menu items that would be appropriate for us? If not, I'm happy to make a meal on the guacamole alone! Thanks in advance.

                                              2. similarly, i went to angela's last night solely based on the reviewds here. i went last night around 7pm and it was completely packed. i had the special: cilantro shrimp with rice - VERY good ($12). my bf ordered something that neither of us can remember the name but it was delicious! it had a strip steak (super soft, juicy and well flavored), scrambled eggs, shredded chicken, onions,..and so much more i dont even remember but it was delicious ($12). we also had the gauc ($9) and rice pudding ($4) -as they were sold out of the dulce de leche crepes.

                                                cons: it was very hard to find parking. our total with tip was $48, which i thought was a little bit more than what i expected for mexican food but we both agree the food is worth it because its more than just burritos and quesadillas.

                                                  I think you've got unreasonable expectations about what the price of the meal should have been. $24 per person (tax and tip included) doesn't seem high for a large appetizer, 2 entrees featuring premium ingredients (steak and shrimp), and dessert, and the ethnicity of the cuisine should not enter into the equation. How many restaurants offer steak or shrimp entrees for $12 each? It's true that the guacamole makes for a pricy appetizer, but the portion is enormous - much bigger than other restaurants that charge $5 to $7 for an order. The last time I was there three people shared it, and it could easily serve four.

                                                  If you want to spend less at Angela's it's very easy - focus your choices on the tacos, gorditas, and enchiladas. You'll still have a wonderful meal.

                                                  Also, unless you're mobility challenged, I highly recommend that you consider taking the T instead of searching for parking. Angela's is less than 10 minutes walk from the Airport station - fredid has posted detailed and excellent walking directions on the Places link for Angela's.

                                                    Had a great meal there last week and have to second how easy it was to get there. I left Harvard Sq. at 4:45 and arrived at Angela's at 5:20 (via T, including wait time at Harvard, though other lines were smooth). Went to the Airport stopped and just walked straight up Brooks St.

                                                    The food, incidentally, was fantastic, spent just over $20.00 for an app of rajas poblanos (peppers with mushrooms, cheese and onion) and the mole chicken for a main. I almost licked the plate, but fortunately I had some of their delish chips left over to scoop up the chocalately goodness.

                                                    1. re: sailormouth

                                                      allstonian - you're right. $24 isnt that much for what i was getting. i guess because the only mexican food ive had was at places like anna's or bocaG for burritos. should have realized i was at a restaurant and was ordering dishes with fresh ingredients.

                                                      i think i will still drive there in the future though even if it takes a while to find parking.

                                                      HAS ANYONE HAD THE CREPE DESSERT YET? (they were sold out by the time i wanted to order them)

                                                        The crepe is delicious - three of us split it and snarfed it up in about one second - not giving us enough to savor the details!

                                                2. I wholeheartedly second this motion! I went to Angelas last Saturday for the first time and it was just perfect.. Great service, welcoming, unpretentious atmosphere.. And the owner, Luis, is a kind, gracious host. I am lucky enough to live a few blocks away, so I will be frequenting this lovely cafe often.
                                                  PS: The chilaquele breakfast is loco-delicious!

                                                    I thought I would add on , instead of starting a new post.

                                                    We went there last night. Ok, Negative first. COLD COLD COLD> there are not large enough caps to express HOW COLD IT WAS. Note to self, NEVER again in winter. they did have like 4 space heater, but seriously. when every person in the joint(except the kids) has not only their jacket on but scarf and hat. COLD. and OMG when that door opens. I swear I almost went out and bought then a heavy velvet curtain for the front door.

                                                    COLD COLD COLD>

                                                    other negative. it is on a corner. not at 131 Lexington actually. passed it. so newbies beware. for a moment I thought I was going to some ones house for dinner

                                                    ok
                                                    FOOD: fab. so delis!.
                                                    We ordered the guacamole, which was a bit on the salty side, but really fresh and good. I am a Californian so a good avocado is a treasure out here.
                                                    Had the chicken Falutas. LOVE. they were not fried, so especially tasty and flavourful.

                                                    I had the Mole. I thought the flavour was amazing. so rich and good. however almost a bit too much sauce for me.
                                                    Brother ordered the red chicken enchilada. He thought is tasted great, however was not spicy enough for his taste, but otherwise agreed it was some of the best Mexican

                                                    DC had a steak special with some AMAZING pepper saute thing. looked like sauted spinach but was all peppers. WOW>

                                                    This place could use a heating system and perhaps a beer of two to offer.
                                                    otherwise, once the weather is warmer I am sure to RETURN!.

                                                      the guac was good but my bf and i felt that there was nothing in it but avac. there was a few tiny pieces of tomato, onions and cilantro. literally, a few.

                                                      1. re: kweesee

                                                        As it should be. The worst thing you can do to a guacamole is get carried away with the add-ins. Personally, I often just want a little lime juice and a little salt.

                                                  2. Finally made it to Angela's after drooling over all your posts. Let me say as a former Californian and New Mexican (i.e. I know this food) how glad I am to have this place in Boston. Not the best ever, but the best in town without contest.

                                                    I was wondering after we left - has anyone asked if they will alloy BYOB until they get a lisence? It sure would be nice to bring some beers along.

                                                      Went again on Monday for lunch, and it was fantastic as usual. It was darn cold, as has been mentioned, and I think it's because of the huge windows. The frequent opening of the door doesn't help either. So I recommend bringing a sweater. The chilaquiles with green sauce also helped keep me warm.

                                                      As to BYOB, it is not legal in the city of Boston. I agree with what MC Slim JB says about it here:

                                                      http://www.chowhound.com/topics/45868...

                                                      "There's no such thing as a BYOB license in Boston. There are places that illegally allow BYOB, but I don't discuss them on Chowhound, and encourage others not to."

                                                        Thanks, Erwocky, for the heads up on BYOB. I wasn't aware of the legal issues, and have been confused as to why some places allow it and others frown upon it. Anyhow, as SlimJB says in that other thread, this is one place I would gladly keep going to with or without a lisence. Still, I hope for their sake it works out.

                                                        1. re: andytee

                                                          Done! Thank you for posting this.

                                                    2. I was finally able to persuade my husband to go here for lunch today. The food was great! I had the chilaquiles with red sauce. It was spicy but delicious. My husband had the Central American and gordito chorizo. The Central American was simple but well done. He really liked the gordito chorizo. There was something else that another table had ordered not on the menu that looked good. It was in a pot. I asked what it was but cannot remember it now. Overall, it was good and cannot wait to try it for dinner.

                                                      1. Likewise got to make my first trip to Angela's. Had amazing rajas poblanos, followed by chicken mole. The poblanos were extraordinary, so simple, but couldn't stop eating them. If they had come out in a five gallon bucket, I might still be working at it. Chicken Mole was fairly moist for chicken breast (my least favorite piece of meat) and had a terrific sauce. I love the feel of the little place and can't wait to get back and do an appetizer tasting.

                                                        1. Went for an early dinner last night, packed at 5:20, which was nice. Had the mole enchilada plate, a taco arabe and one each of the gorditas, one with chicken and red sauce, the other with chorizo and green sauce. One of the guys (Luis? not sure, don't think so), suggested I try both and decide which I prefer, couldn't decide, liked them both. Only complaint is that they don't have a more efficient means of delivering the mole sauce. Perhaps a pastry bag attached to my mouth is more my speed?

                                                          On another note, they have a petition going for a beer and wine license. In addition to being another excuse to get to Angela's and sign it in this never ending winter, it's kind of a fun read in and of itself.

                                                          2. After reading on the boards that there are no decent Mexican restaurants in S. Boston (which is true) and reading here that Angela's was empty and have eaten @ Angela's and loved it, if I had a magic wand, I would wave it and Angela's would appear in the former Grill 77 space (and way back, the Zydeco Grille) in S.B.. That would be heaven!
                                                            Until then, I will drive around that block as many times as it takes to find a parking space for Angela's. Some places are worth it. This is one of them.

                                                            1. Not sure if this has been mentioned yet or not, but I know in the past there where a few complaints about the chicken breast being too dry with the Mole. Last time I went to Angela's they started offering Pork as a substitute for Chicken on all the Mole entrees.

                                                              I had the Pork Mole Enchiladas and they where amazing. I personally never had much of a problem with the Chicken, but I would say the Pork version is probably even more tasty.

                                                                Still, it's one of the best moles I've ever had.

I enjoyed the red sauce Gordita... nice little appetizer. As a transplant most recently from Texas, this is a great addition to the Boston scene. My only wish would be an inauthentic, chunky-style salsa (rather than the more authentic, and delish, thin red and green salsas/sauces). Part of the "mexican" experience for me. But darn this was good, I'll definitely be back, and soon (and bought lunch for tomorrow!!)

                                                                  1. I visited Boston from Toronto and had the chance to make it out to Angelas. The food was great. There was a bit of a wait but it was worth it. The guacamole was a definite must!! Best I've had. I ordered the Chicken enchiladas and it was great. If you haven't gone, make sure you check it out! Just call ahead.
