Masa Woburn

Masa in Woburn has revamped itself into Masa Taqueria & Tequila Bar (formerly called Masa Southwest Bar & Grill) and they also have an updated website and a completely new menu.

New signage, the same location conveniently located next to Whole Foods. Plenty of free parking.

It looks the same inside apart from the new wall decorations and posters.

The nice linen napkins are gone and replaced by, horror! paper napkin wrapped silverware. Gone also is the delicious bread and the spreads, the only thing left is the cornbread and the maple butter spread that, of course, was the one that I didn't really care for.

The lunch menu is the same as the dinner menu, so all the reasonable priced lunch items are gone. I picked the Taco Plate with four tacos ($12) and ordered two with charred shrimp, mango and jicama slaw and two with the crispy fish and remoulade. It also comes with yellow jasmine rice and black beans. The shrimp taco had one (1) overcooked shrimp on it but the crispy fish ones were seriously crispy to the point you could have driven nails in with it but despite that it was not overcooked. Apart from that it was really nice and the pickled onions added a nice tartness and the remoulade was also nice and spicy. The rice and beans were OK. I'm not too thrilled by having the food served on a quarter sheet pan. They only serve lunch Thursday and Friday but are doing brunch on the weekends.
Update: Restaurant is sold and will be closed on Mothers Day, May 8th.
