While waiting for our food, we chowed down on some chips. It’s easy to go overboard with chips.

For my side I ordered

Elotes de la Calle
Roasted Mexican street corn, queso fresco, chile molido

Bunny is a big corn fan. The combo of sweet and savory is what makes this dish

2nd entrée

Camarones Ajillo
Jumbo shrimp and organic crimini and button mushrooms cooked in a garlic chile
salsa, mashed boniato, pico de gallo

This reminded us a lot of Mofongo in Puerto Rico. Shrimp with a starch base, the shrimp was perfect.

You put them under your pillow and it is supposed to ward off bad spirits.

Overall Besito Mexican is a very welcomed addition to the Chestnut hill area. It serves delicious Mexican food that is fairly priced with a large diversified menu. The restaurant seems like it is doing very well. There was a decent line forming behind the Hostess. I can recommend this restaurant.
