From June Wulff:
The best time to go to La Verdad on Lansdowne Street is when the Red Sox are out of town because you can a) get an outside table and b) find a place to park. The other night when I was there, two of us were angsting over the white wine options (there's one), and the server brought each of us a taste -- probably so we would stop the inquisition. We started with the grilled corn -- a couple of pieces of sweet corn topped with mayonesa, cotija cheese, and chile spice. It's a little messy so don't order it on a first date.
I was tempted by the taco plates (one comes with your choice of three different varieties), but I assumed they were hard shells. You'd think my in-the-know friend would have told me they were soft tacos -- but she was too busy with her margarita. I went with the quesadilla with grilled corn, mushrooms, and Monterey Jack cheese, which was very tasty, but next time I'll go for the three tacos (grilled skirt steak, achiote and sour orange chicken, and maybe the confit duck).
