la tortilla feliz to close

Well, another one bites the dust – unfortunately. This is one place I’m sad to see go. I’ve enjoyed many pitchers of sangria (the best in town) and empanadas that are borderline addicting at this little Tremont spot that serves some very tasty South American cuisine.

The last meal will be December 31. If you haven’t been, try and go before they close. The food is really good and very reasonably priced. And I have yet to have a better glass (or pitcher!) of sangria – it’s that good.

    That stinks. I hate to see any independents closing up shop. I only went there twice and I just wasn’t wowed enough to be a regular customer there, but I’m sad to hear of this nonetheless, especially since I think they were the only game in town in terms of authentic S. American food, at least that I know of. I wonder what will happen with the space.

    While I have always enjoyed the food there, I can’t say I’m all that surprised, too. Every time we were there, there wasn’t but a handful of people inside.

    This is our favorite restaurant in Tremont. It’s sad to see it go.

    I don’t, but will ask around. We’re going to miss those, too.

    La Casa Tazumal on W105th off of Lorain is an awesome Salvadoran restaurant that serves authentic and inexpensive pupusas, among other great Salvadoran treats!

    This domain seems to get a good ammount of visitors. How do you promote it? It offers a nice unique twist on things. I guess having something useful or substantial to post about is the most important thing.

    I attempted to submit a remark before, but it hasn’t shown up. I think the spam filter may be defective?
