Soul fire in Brighton

It's the best BBQ in Greater Boston, which obviously isn't saying much, but hey. I guess the exception is the beef rib at Redbones. And BT's is in a different geographic area. Anyway, what I'm trying to say is that it is very worth going.

Best place for fried seafood/fisherman's platter?

Best New England style fried seafood plate: Take the T to Wood Island and walk a couple blocks to Rincon Limeno. Order the jalea. You can also get some delicious ceviche to go with it.

Ain't nothin' but a ghee thing, baby!

west bengal, NCT, MP, for a few weeks. I have several Bengali friends who don't disagree with me on Royal Bengal. But I guess it's closed now anyway.

Case in point: Royal Bengal is AWFUL. There are plenty of restaurants around that are not only "closer to authentic," but actually good food.

What do people think of Rendezvous in Central Square, Cambridge?

It doesn't sound real because the entity proposed to be buying the restaurant is the one that has owned it all along.

What do people think of Rendezvous in Central Square, Cambridge?

Public records indicate that Vern's Cafe, Inc. (Steve Johnson) is the legal entity that has been doing business as Rendezvous since its inception.

Perhaps kewpie was confused.

The Armenian Market, off Arsenal Street?

Garlic n Lemons is better and a better price, and with more convenient hours. Also, both restaurants are next to bubble tea shops, and the one in Kendall (Leisure Station) gets my vote for worst bubble tea in Boston.

Anywhere for good, legit Japanese style Ramen?

The Ramen Jiro Mita honten first opened in 1968, that's not really recent

My Grillo pickle mystery

No health risk, they will just get gross eventually. Same as for kimchi, even in the fridge it will go from mild to unpleasantly sour.

My Grillo pickle mystery

They'll keep going as long as you let them, faster at room temp. They probably just don't put them in the fridge at Commonwealth.

SE Asian groceries (especially Thai)?

Market Basket in Somerville has galangal and sometimes tumeric, lots of fresh and dry chile options, bigger thai eggplants. They often have curry leaves but I'm not sure about lime leaves.

Why Yelp is useless (Boston discussion on their "Top 100 places to eat!" article

Does the "search nearby" feature still exist? I couldn't find it after they redesigned the site about a month ago.

Where can I find Peanut Flour?

A food processor will turn peanuts into peanut butter. The peanut flour that used to be sold at TJ's and now is generally available online only is defatted, so it's more like a protein and fiber supplement than just ground peanuts.

Boston Cantonese?

You will get a lot of recommendations for Peach Farm. It is highly praised here, and horribly overrated.

For a single Cantonese meal I would strongly recommend Best Little Restaurant "Yat Ding Ho". They don't have their own seafood tanks, but if you call ahead or request some particular seafood item they will call next door to the fish market there and get fresh items.

For more casual eats, grab dim sum, noodles, rice plates and pastries at Great Taste around the corner.

BTW Hynes Convention Center is not in the South End.
