Home Taste in Watertown to Open New Location in Former La Posada Space in Arlington Heights

by Marc Hurwitz

A Chinese restaurant in Watertown is expanding to Arlington, moving into the space where a Mexican dining spot had been until late last year.

According to a note from @kcbaskin of The Boston Globe and a post from Your Arlington, Home Taste is planning to open on Mass Ave. in Arlington Heights, taking over the former La Posada space. Based on the menu at the location on Mt. Auburn Street in Watertown Square (which opened back in September of 2015), expect to see hand-pulled noodles, handmade dumplings, Chinese "burgers," mala pots, spicy Szechuan dishes, and more at the upcoming restaurant. No opening date has been given as of yet for the new location of Home Taste, so keep checking back for updates.

La Posada closed its doors last December after being in business for a bit less than eight years.

The address for the upcoming Home Taste in Arlington Heights is 1312 Massachusetts Avenue, Arlington, MA, 02476. The website for the Watertown location can be found at

[June 27 update: Wicked Local states that Home Taste plans to open in Arlington Heights in mid-July.]

[July 29 update: A post on The Arlington List Facebook group page indicates that Home Taste opens its new Arlington Heights location on August 1.]

[August 1 update: A check on the place last night indicates that the opening of Home Taste in Arlington Heights has been delayed and that it is now looking at an August 8 opening.]
