Chacarero Restaurant Review: Chilean chacareros in Downtown Crossing? Who would believe a pushcart would evolve into a sandwich counter that feeds the masses of business people who crowd here weekdays? Simplicity rules: beef, for instance, comes barbecued or as tips, topped with Muenster cheese, steamed green beans (don’t knock it until you’ve tried it), spicy hot sauce and creamy avocado spread. Like any worthwhile between-the-buns venture, the secrets here are fresh ingredients and soft homemade bread, plus expert seasoning. Pair your sandwich with a side of sweet oven-fried potatoes and take a rice pudding to go. If you get addicted, you can buy the rolls separately. Also located at 101 Arch St., Boston, 617-542-0392.
