Eating My Way Through Arlington MA

FOOD is a big part of life, and Arlington serves it up!

Real Estate is my life, but food is a necessity as we work, live and play every day. Thankfully we have some fantastic choices around Arlington!

This will be a regular category of my Blog, and I’ll share my insights as I Eat my Way Through Arlington, MA. I will cover breakfast, lunch, coffee spots, dinners, late-night, desserts etc., although admittedly from my perspective – as a PICKY EATER.

What does this have to do with Real Estate? Its good to know what you can get to eat if you are scoping out a certain neighborhood – so please note that this restaurant is in Arlington Heights, where there is affordable housing both in condos and single family homes, near public transportation and shops, and covering three elementary school districts. This is a hot area, and we’re expecting many exciting listings this spring all around Arlington Heights.

Tonight we ate at La Posada – a relatively new MEXICAN Restaurant in Arlington Heights. Here you will discover authentic recipes guarded and perfected through generations by a Mexican family who loves what they do. Lunch is quick and affordable, dinner is always a special experience, with wonderful specials on weekends. They make their own delicious jalapeño salsa (just spicy enough) and chips, as well as the authentic Mexican dishes on the menu. Tonight we were treated to a flaming flauta (chicken, steak and shrimp with two kinds of peppers, rice, beans and guacamole). I had camarones poblano – shrimp sauteed with garlic, mushtooms, tomatoes, and lime – tequila sauce, over rice.  OLE!

The restaurant does not serve alcohol; most patrons bring their own wine. We had flan for dessert – delicate and ok even when you’re full! Again, grandmother’s recipe. Delicioso!  Very nice ambience, service is pleasant but not speedy, patrons seem happy to make an evening of it (lines can form on weekend nights, so plan accordingly).
