I apologize in advance for this hunger-inducing photo, but the Lamb Bocadillo from a recent visit to Tres Gatos in Jamaica Plain is just too amazing not to share.
All the food we tried that night was great, but nothing stood out more than the mini lamb burger on a homemade potato roll topped with chimichurri and crispy shallots. It's one of those dishes you wake up thinking about the next day. The burger patty itself was tender and juicy, and the potato roll was the perfect vessel to contain all the juices without falling apart. The chimichurri added a fresh herbal note and the shallots gave it a crunchy texture.
I could have eaten three of these myself. Bravo, Chef Marcos!
