Montecristo is a small hole-in-the-wall Mexican restaurant in downtown Lynn, a Mexican restaurant that is actually owned and operated by Salvadorans. The menu therefore includes both Mexican and Salvadoran dishes, so treat yourself to something other than the typical tacos and burritos. One great thing about this place is that they're open for breakfast, so if you're in the mood for something different, I recommend that you try the "plato tipico" (eggs with tomatoes and onions) or "huevos con chorizo" (scrambled eggs with Mexican sausage) or for a meatless breakfast, try the huevos con papas (scrambled eggs with potatoes). Special treats that you cannot find at other places are the Tamales de Chiplini, a legume from Central America that is used for its aroma and flavor. A favorite of mine is the "Plato Mixto" which includes one tamal, one pupusa, yuca (also known as cassava, a root vegetable very delicious!
