While we love the picturesque streets of Brookline, fact is, the town isn’t particularly famous for its Mexican culture. So in order to find yourself that delectable south of the border cuisine while in good ol’ B-line, we generally have to visit one of the Boston chains such as Boca Grande Taqueria and Anna’s Taqueria. While both are Boston institutions in their own right, they are not the appropriate place for a leisurely, elegant meal. But one special restaurant in Brookline combines delicious Mexican food with an old-world elegance. Located near the St. Mary’s T stop and Audubon Circle right over the Brookline border, Sol Azteca embraces traditional Mexican culture. Envision drippy candles and painted-tile tables mixed with woven wicker chairs and dim lighting. The stucco walls and exposed brick create a truly historical ambiance. There’s no doubt dining at Sol Azteca definitely beats sitting at crowded tables and paying strictly in cash.
If you stop into Sol Azteca, we suggest starting off your meal with one of their many flavors of margaritas. Also, you can never go wrong with the fajitas, which can be filled with shrimp, chicken, beef, or vegetables. There’s even a kid’s menu, which is perfect if you want to make your trip to Sol Azteca a family affair. But no matter what you decide to pick from the menu, we guarantee this “sol” will shine brightly.
