Review: El Jefe's Taqueria

Rafael "El Jefe" Trujillo (right), former Dominican dictator, reviews the newest authentic Mexican cuisine in Harvard Square.

By El Jefe

During my annual meeting with Drew Faust, I received a restaurant recommendation from DGF herself - El Jefe’s Taqueria. It was about time my influence made its way beyond the Dominican Republic! Flattered but not surprised by the namesake of the taco joint, I headed inside, my hopes as high as the Pico Duarte mountain. What could be wrong when your restaurant is named after the greatest visionary to ever live?

And boy, was I right. The tacos? Perfection! The quesadillas? Ooey, gooey, and delicious. Sure, there could have been a few more monuments erected, but damn, that hot sauce was like the fire of the Gods!

Once I finished my meal, as content as a secret policeman with an execution list, I spoke to the employees about their noticeable lack of portraits of me. “There is simply no reason to deny costumers the pleasure of the handsome, chiseled face of their revered President.” I winked.

“Excuse me?” the girl responded.

It looks as though I’ll have to tell the SIM to gently remind the workers of the establishment of the man they are honoring. And while they’re at it, maybe lower the guac prices a little bit? $2.50 extra is an outrageous price. But then again, a wise man did once say, “He who does not know how to deceive does not know how to rule.”

Overall, 4 stars. Viva Tacos, Viva Trujillo.
