100% Delicias Express opened its doors on Centre Street for the first time on Sunday and there was quickly a steady stream of eager customers.
100% Delicias Express is a sister restaurant of the same name on Hyde Park Avenue and both offer a large and varied menu. Unlike the restaurant in Hyde Park Avenue, the new Jamaica Plain spot only has a few tables for customers in its small space at 660A Centre St.
The JP version sells 10 different types of empanadas, including a ricotta & spinach version, a crabmeat one and quipe (deep fried bulgur).
The empanadas are one of owner Civelis Marte's favorites. Also, the cativia (yucca patties) and pork mofongo (a dish with mashed plantains as the central ingredient).
The restaurant also offers rotisserie chickens, grilled seafood plates, grilled meats such as churrasco and they all come with tostones. There are also several fried meat offerings, including longaniza (sausage), pork belly, beef and other options, too.
There's also a breakfast menu that includes mangu con bacalao (mashed plantains with cod fish) and several other options. You can also get fresh squeezed orange juice, lemonade and fresh fruit smoothies made to order.
