On Our Radar:
Delicious & Down to Earth
Posted by:  Patrick Hellen

Albondigas. Even the word itself is delicious. Now picture them, slow cooked with onions and spices and black olives in a tomato spicy sauce, and served with a pile of rice and beans. If you are now salivating like I am, then Don Ricardo's is a destination you need to hit up. This place is hidden gem status for those of us outside the South End, as it's on a lesser travelled street, unless you're looking for the post office next door. The older couple that run the place are FREAKING ADORABLE. They chat with people, and sit and talk with each other while you dine. I totally saw them hold hands, and they are crazy nice. The menu itself is very varied, with a great deal of fish offered, but my meatballs were so damn amazing I've gotten them twice. I also highly recommend the flan, as it's the perfect after touch to their slightly spicy meals, and is so damn good I'd bathe in it if I could get enough. Take a stroll off the normal beaten path of the South End and find Ricardo's, and I guarantee you'll keep coming back for flan again and again and again and again...
