Cafe Azteca

Reviewed By jgot - WORCESTER

We have been to Lawrence twice in our lives. The first time, we went to Cafe Azteca on the recommendation of friends. The food was excellent. Turns out, the restaurant was closing the next day for renovations. So, on our second visit to Lawrence, we knew we had to try Cafe Azteca again. We needed to see if the food suffered with the changes.

It did not. In fact, everything we ordered was labeled "new" on the menu and each ranged from very good to excellent

Started with two sodas (we had a drive to get home). My husband got root beer, but I went for one of the Mexican sodas, in pineapple, which I thought perfectly complemented the Mexican fiesta feel of the restaurant.

We munched away on the chips and salsa, assuaging our guilt because, after all, the chips were made from corn and the salsa was made from tomato and onion, that means it is a salad, right.

For an appetizer, we went for a trio, which was cheese quesadilla, steak taquitos and chicken flautitas with guacamole and more of that addictive salsa.

The quesadillas were OK, made better by dipping the triangles in the salsa. The chicken flautitas were crunchy on the outside, moist on the inside, but needed a bit of extra zip from the salsa to really pop. The best were the taquitos; the steak held up to the other flavors well. My husband said the chunky guacamole was some of the best he has had, though, honestly, we are not guac people.

We wanted to sample a lot, so went for three sauces: Mole, tomatillo and chipotle salsa.

The complex mole came on the tamale: Corn meal with cheese and dark meat chicken, steamed in corn husk and bathed in the dark, rich mole. We scraped every drop into the take-home container. This was my husband's favorite.

The Enchiladas divorciadas (one chicken with tomatillo sauce and one beef with chipotle salsa) were excellent. I thought the beef was good (might have liked a little more sauce). The tomatillo sauce would taste good on a shoe, but tasted even better on the chicken enchiladas.

Both entrees came with flavorful rice and a choice of beans (we sampled both the black beans and refried - my husband preferred the refried, but made sure all the leftover black beans made the takeout container.

We were full - and we had three takeout boxes with leftovers - but figured we wanted something a little sweet. And that is just what we got with the Buñuelos - triangles of crispy fried dough, topped with powdered sugar and drizzled with honey. They were still a bit savory, but definitely a little sweet.

Cafe Azteca not only didn't disappoint the second visit, it made us wish Lawrence was just a little closer.

Their menu is quite varied and is sure to please even the fussiest eaters. I'm not a huge Thai fan but I have found a number of tasty dishes that I love. So if you love Thai food, this is your kind of place.

Tripoli Bakery Incorporated

Reviewed By travelingteacher51 - Pepperell, Massachusetts

I am fussy about my Italian pastry! I was told that this is the best around so I ordered an Italian rum cake and drove 40 miles to this shop. so glad I did!.
The cake is just as great as any in the North End of Boston. It was wonderful. Whipped cream with nuts on the side, pudding and strawberries in the center of the 3 layers! It could have fed about 30-40 people. $50 was a great price.
Of course I also stocked up on other pastries too. They had samples of a spinach pie that was so delicious, I bought two to freeze--$4 for a huge slice. My husband bought pizza slices --fantastic.
I can't say enough about this little place. And the prices were less than in Boston.
The staff was friendly and helpful. There was a long line because of the quality but the line moved. I hope to go back if I am in the area!

Dolce Freddo Gelato

Reviewed By pandccoppola - Methuen, Massachusetts

A few years ago, my family visited Sicily and enjoyed gelato sometimes more than once a day. At almost every opportunity I have gelato at various places when on vacation or just traveling about.
Yesterday I stopped at Dolce Freddo Gelato with my grandson. This gelato is the "real stuff". I have found my true Sicilian gelato.
For those who do not know what gelato is.....think ice cream on steroids.

We dined here twice on our Andover trip enjoying a great atmosphere with food and wine to match.. This busy little place serves good wine and Italian food . We ate indoors once and at the rear of the restaurant is a lovely small outdoor area which we really enjoyed. Food is cooked well with loads of flavours(shrimp linguine) was superb.
Staff are friendly and attentive in this busy fun place and well worth a visit.

Thwaites Market

Reviewed By Bill B - Methuen, Massachusetts, United States

After twenty-some years living in Methuen, I just discovered this little gem for Anglophiles and others. This is a small grocery store and butcher with a selection of products from the United Kingdom. The meat pies were delicious, though slightly different from the kind I usually get in the UK. The meat is ground and holds together. The crust was golden and crisp. A couple beef and couple lamb pies with some homemade gravy made a wonderful weekday dinner. Another evening we fried up some English bangers and had the traditional 'bangers and mash' with onion gravy. It was yummy. The staff were lovely. I suggest getting there early in the day to get a better pie selection.

Burtons Grill & Bar

Reviewed By LKWendel - Westfield, New Jersey

We wanted a place that was outside of downtown Andover, where parking would be easy and had a varied menu (for gluten-free and regular) and this fit the bill. We were not disappointed. Aside from a glass of Chardonnay being a bit pricey for average brand ($9/glass) the est of the meal was fine. Our group ordered the baked stuffed zucchini as an appetizers and it was delicious. My son ordered the cheeseburger was a bit well done but very good. My niece ordered the Cuban burger which was surprise my very juicy and tasty. I had the wild mushroom ravioli and found the sauce a bit heavy and benign. The Mediterranean salad was fresh and inviting. We treated ourselves to the MJ tasting dessert trio- one dessert was better than the next!! We ordered the butterscotch crumble, the chocolate mousse and vanilla cheesecake. We had an argument about which dessert was best and everyone had a different opinion so glad we ordered all three! Fun atmosphere and great service! We will be back!

I normally order the same items whether it be tips, scallops, baked stuffed scrod or baked stuffed shrimp. the appetizers are tasty as well - ,my favorites are the stuffed mushrooms and fried zucchini. the bread is always fresh and delicious. This is a definite constant to return to for delicious food that is cooked to perfection.
