La Qchara | Melrose, MA

This past Saturday after a long day of perusing Estate sales and finding some nifty things me and my friend stopped by a place that happened to be nearby the last sale we went to. On a whim found it on Yelp and boy was it absolutely amazing.

Promoted as a Latin American spot, I typically have high expectations as my Puerto Rican background dictates that the flavors, spice and all around feel have to be pretty good.

We decided we would get a few things and just split them, because everything just looked wonderful.


  • Domino Arepa (100% Corn Buns) filled with Black beans, sweet plantains and Queso fresco
  • Torta de Pollo (Mexican Sandwich served with Yuca Fries) filled with chipotle chicken,cheese, avocado,onions, lettuce,black bean spread and chipotle aioli.
  • Torta de Pernil (Mexican Sandwich served with Yuca Fries) filled with roasted pork, tomato, avocado, crispy onions, and chipotle aioli.
  • Chips & Salsa
  • Tostones (Fried Green Plantains) served with Chipotle Aioli Sauce
  • Sparkling Limeade

Rating: Everything was fresh, flavorful, and there was enough spice where needed. 10 out of 10

Desserts & Coffee

  • Dulce De Leche Cake
  • Tres Leches Cake (Sponge Cake soaked in three different kinds of milk)
  • Cubano Coffee (2 shots of Espresso with a raw sugar reduction)
  • Vietnanese Coffee (Espresso with Sweetened Condensed Milk)

Cakes were perfect and light, not too heavy. Coffees, strong and perfectly sweet, no need to add anything.

Over all I was completely impressed, the ambiance, the location, the food, the people. I will make the 30 minute drive to Melrose, because the food is worth that and more! Check out the link below!

Enjoy Life!
