El Indio Mexican Cafe receives an additional star convert in April when the modest Tiny Italy shop is featured in a new e book about American cuisine — decided on to signify a “classic Mexican-American menu.”

Published by the creator of “Diners, Travel-Ins and Dives,” the ebook is called “Food Americana: The Extraordinary People and Extraordinary Tales behind America’s Favourite Dishes” — which can be pre-ordered on and elsewhere.

Writer David Webpage describes it as the within tale of “how Us residents have shaped a nationwide cuisine from a environment of flavors — from lox and bagels to sushi, tacos to pizza.”

He spoke to Jennifer Pesqueira, the 3rd-era operator of 81-12 months-outdated El Indio, staff members Nico Robles (performing there 37 a long time) and Alvardo Perales (21 years). An affiliate interviewed many clients.

“It’s not like a 5-star restaurant,” Pesqueira claims in the guide. “But it’s 5-star foods at charges that every person can manage,” like its signature taquitos.
