Delux Cafe

100 Chandler St, Boston, MA 02116 617-338-5258

Description: SOUTH END. Darken the doors of Delux, and you'll know you've entered a new dimension-Christmas lights and Elvis memorabilia abound. This pub probably takes the cake for mostly oddly decorated eatery in the South End! Regulars love it, though, and keep coming back for the diverse, Latin-influenced menu. Try the grilled cheese sandwich with mozzarella, Roma tomatoes, and fresh pesto that will make you a Delux believer too! The menu also offers a notable selection of micro-brews.

Tacos El Charro

349 Centre St, Jamaica Plain, MA 02130 617-983-9275

Description: JAMAICA PLAIN. This casual Mexican eatery is definitely cut from a different cloth. You're sure to notice that as soon as you spy the blinking taco sign that graces the restaurant's entrance. The interior continues the unusual decorating trend as it's decked out with piñatas, crazily colored sombreros, plants, and mirrors. The menu, however, is anything but strange. It's an artist's pallet of spice and flavor. The tamales, burritos, fajitas, and tacos are excellent due to a secret blend of spices and marinades. Wash it all down with an authentic Mexican soda.
