Tenoch Mexican in Medford: One Year Anniversary Celebration

Just an FYI to any who are familiar with the amazing, Tenoch Mexican Taqueria in Medford, this Friday, March 1 and Saturday, March 2 they will be celebrating their one year anniversary of being in business.

Their Facebook page promises, food tastings, tepache, Sangria (for sale), a raffle and extended hours (11AM - 10PM) on both days.

If you have not tried Tenoch, it really is a great spot with Torta's and tacos that rival any I've tasted in Boston or beyond. The Boston Globe included in them in their "Best of the New" Restaurants of 2012.

Additionally, the last time we were in, I was chatting with one of the owners and he told me that they are considering opening on Sundays with a limited brunch menu, including the Texas breakfast favorite, Migas. I know of no other restaurant in the city that serves the dish, so I was very excited to hear it.

  1. Oh! I hope they do brunch. They would be mobbed; brunch in Medford is nonexistent.

      Yes, but not a big place - they'd be worse than Soundbites when it was small. They'd have to be kicking people out..

      And I hope their coffee would measure up..

    2. Ohh! I have been hearing good things and can not wait to try. Growing up in a Mexican house hold, I have yet to find a place that can come close to home cooking.

      I think you are right I have asked for Migas at other places and some say they do not make special requests that are not on the menu and some have no idea what they are. I still love making a big batch of migas after church on sundays.

        You gotta go! Youll love it. The chili de Arbol sauce is a must! And clearly I need to come to your house on Sunday!

      2. It's a gem of a spot. May they have many more anniversaries!

        1. Tenoch is a fantastic spot, and my favorite when it comes to burritos. A colleague of mine gave the recommendation and I have been several times since. Portions/Quality are excellent and enough to not induce a post-lunch food coma.

          Another gem to check out is Que Padre in Eastie. Right on Chelsea street right by Jevelli's, this place is small spot with a similar feel to Tenoch. Top items we had were the Saltenas and the Sonoran Dog

            Thank you for the heads up on Que Padre. I will definitely check it out. Can you describe what the Sonoran Dog is? I've never had one.

            1. re: UnclePH

              Sonoran Dogs are not delicate in any sense of the word, but the combination of the items on there defintiley mesh well togther. It is a bacon wrapped hot dog, topped with pinto beans, jalepeno, tomato, onion, mustard and chipolte mayo.

              Very messy but flavorful. The Saltenas which are essentially Bolvian empenadas are very good too.

                Wow! That looks amazing. I love Saltenas. Haven't had any good ones since we left DC. We will definitely be going soon. Thank you!!

            2. Just came back from lunch during their day 1 of anniversary celebration. Very busy, happy mood inside. Tried the specials - tacos de surtido pork (crunchy), molletes (wee bit like a bruschetta), tepache (fermented pineapple drink).
