Nashua’s ethnic culinary surprises continue with tiny PAISANO’S Mexican Restaurant behind the corner market on Palm St. This is the real deal, starting with Jamaica tea (“ha-my-ka”) – made from blood pressure-reducing hibiscus flowers – yes, really) and Michelada (spicy mix of mex beer, lime and tomato juice). Then some dishes they only make on weekends: Pozole (corn hominy in broth with chunks of roast pork and self-added toppings) and Barbacoa de Res (spicy braised boneless beef shanks that one stuffs into tortillas, again with an assortment of provided add-ins). Bring cash and a modicum of Spanish.
