Mexican Lunch for under $6.00 bucks in Woburn

My coworkers and I were talking and the average lunch will set you back more than $10.00 for a sandwich, chips and drink at most deli shops or take out joints.  We stumbled upon Xtapa Cantina Mexican Restaurant in Woburn Center and decided to give it a try.

Similar to most other Mexican restaurant, warm complimentary tortilla chips were served and each guest had their own cup of salsa. I loved that I didn't even have to ask because I sure do love to double dip! The chips were nice but the salsa was a bit on the watery side.

The $5.99 lunch menu was pretty extensive. There were tacos, burritos, enchiladas, and taco salads. Each meal was served with rice and refried beans.  For protein choices, there was chicken, pork and beef.

Sizzling Kitchen in Downtown Lowell

I've been meaning to try Sizzling Kitchen in the old T&M Vietnamese spot since it opened its doors late last year.  I've heard good things and that they serve macaroons, pho and Italian pasta on the same menu????

The Mo and I finally made our way there on a weekday night and we were the only dining patrons at 7 PM.  Service was friendly and quick.

We started off with some traditional eggrolls (because you know how much I love eggrolls!) and their Signature Sizzling Kitchen specialty rolls. It featured teriyaki beef, rice, kimchee, scallions, and mushrooms.  It reminded me of bimbim bap in a rice paper roll. Tit was delicious but a bit overwhelming with the different flavors and textures.
