Best of the New: Food
Boston Globe, 12/16/12
This cheery counter-service taqueria in downtown Medford specializes in tortas, hefty sandwiches with meat, Oaxaca cheese, and vegetables stuffed inside soft telera bread. But you also can’t go wrong with the tacos, enchiladas, and burritos. The friendly guys behind the counter are happy to discuss the merits of their various salsas and fillings (the chile de arbol is a spicy essential), affably doling out tastes of this and that. It’s a great place for families — service is speedy and prices are fair.

If you’re caught in a Chipotle/Anna’s rut and can’t seem to break free, try Tenoch. We visited earlier this week with Andrew, and he approved. Appealingly, the counter-service menu is bigger than at other fastish-food Mexican places.

Adios, cubanos. Ciao, panini. Later, subs. There’s a new sandwich in town: the torta. At Tenoch Mexican, a recent addition to Medford, this sloppy, gut-busting, south-of-the-border sandwich is about as good as it gets.
Local Restaurant: Tenoch
Clamoring for a restaurant that serves authentic Mexican food in Medford Square? Then Tenoch is the place for you! Opened only a month ago in the hub bub of the Square, its a family business owned by Alvaro Sandoval, a native of Veracruz, Mexico, who incorporates classic Mexican ingredients and includes popular Latin American items on the menu. In Alvaro’s own words, “A lot of [Mexican] places are owned by non-Mexicans; we are Mexicans.” It doesn’t get more authentic than native Mexican food being cooked by native Mexicans.

Tenoch Mexican Restaurant Now Open in Medford Square
Medford Patch, 3/6/12
Tenoch’s menu features items expected for a taqueria, like burritos, tacos and quesadillas. But there are also some unique options. Its Tenoch Torta – a sandwich served on oval-shaped bread with beans, pork, ham, Oaxaca cheese, chipotle mayo, avocado and onions – is already receiving lots of positive feedback, Sandoval said.
