Last year around this time I wrote about my favorite restaurant, and my favorite dish at that restaurant. Well, I’ve found that same dish, or at least a very close approximation closer than Watertown. Last week Les and I went to Orinoco in Brookline Village (22 Harvard Street). What you see pictured is parrilla caraquena, a grill plate that includes chorizo, steak, chicken, guacamole, and yucca frita. No special orders (save for a side of plantains, of course), just a big paleo friendly plate of meat. Orinoco has a couple other locations as well, in the South End at 477 Shawmut Street, and in Harvard Square at 56 JFK Street. Apparently they’ve got a lot of other good stuff on the menu, and rumor has it their adult beverages are quite tasty, but I’ll probably stick to the parilla caraquena. If you’re in any of these neighborhoods looking for a real good meal, I highly recommend giving Orinoco a try.
