Cactus Club Review - Part Two/Update

Way back in the summer of 2009, I posted a review on Cactus Club in Back Bay. Back then, "gluten-free" wasn't in their vocabulary, and all you could do was cross your fingers and say a prayer that you wouldn't die. However, Cactus Club has had a new chef for several months, and they are now all-aboard the gluten-free train, and my recent dining experience there was both safe and delicious!

In the past, my favorite meal was their black bean enchilada, but now they have a new and more authentic version of the dish. The enchilada de frijoles has a creamy tomatillo sauce, spinach, red onions, cheese, and a nice kick of heat.

As much as I missed my old black bean enchilada, the new and updated version surpassed my expectations. The sauce was the best part, as it had a combination of tang and sweetness that was well balanced. The portion size was too big for me, but I was happy to have my leftovers for lunch the next day.

I also tried the tostada de aguacate with avocados, tomatoes, romaine lettuce, and a black bean spread. The tostada is a great appetizer, and the contrasting textures (crunchy tostada, creamy avocado, and smooth black bean spread) is enjoyable, fun, and fresh.

Items that can be made gluten-free are marked on their menu, and most of their menu can be ordered gf. I also have to point out that Cactus Club has the best chips and salsa in Boston, and phenomenal guacamole. The margaritas are delicious and addicting also. Enjoy a great meal on their outdoor patio, or head over after work for half-priced appetizers Monday-Thursday.
