Rite Spice Jamaican Lynn

Thanks for the recommendation. Tried the oxtail and browned chicken with gravy and both were delicious. Looking forward to their patties and jerk pork and chicken as well as curried goat.

Gene's Chinese Flatbread Coming to Boston

Your snide comment is uncalled for. Had no idea that i was supposed to follow the advice of Chowhounder 'experts' to the t like you or risk such remarks. The board above the register did not state that the noodle soup was made of regular non-hand pulled noodles and i was in the mood for noodle soup.

Gene's Chinese Flatbread Coming to Boston

Made the mistake of getting No.5 which is the spicy noodle soup with bits of pork and what looked like frozen peas and carrots. Thought that perhaps the amount of noodles used was too much. The broth was ok. (not really spicy-did they alter the broth for the downtown lunch crowd?) but disappointed that noodles were not the hand-pulled variety. Cumin lamb skewer was flavorful but a tad dry and chewy. Not sure what the hype and excitement is all about.

Savage inequalities

Yes, i enjoy and value good food and creative cuisine like everyone else, but within reasonable means which is of course a relative thing. For me, splurging well over a hundred bucks per person on a meal seems pretty excessive to me.

Good for you for thinking about the less fortunate. I personally find it hard to justify making big splurges on meals in light of disturbing reports like this.

Are chowhounders affected by food insecurity? Do chowhounders care about this issue?

Is there anywhere Houndish in the Stoneham-Wakefield-Melrose area?

There's also a good no-frills Moroccan spot on Salem St in Malden.

Bizarre Boston?

No big deal. They are just referring to the use of belachan (shrimp paste) in some of the dishes. It adds a slight funky umami salty dimension and used in moderately small amounts. You find it in other south east asian cuisines too, under different names.If you can handle fish sauce you can handle the dishes.

Anyone with knowledge or experience with food trucks... I have a few questions.

Overall there is also less creative fare to be found in Boston food trucks.

What's for Dinner #187 - the "We're Cooking Right Along" Edition [OLD]

Made a nicely seared diver scallop (crusted with dukkah) with Hunan salted Fresno chili and forbidden rice, stir fried noodle with chinese veggies and shrimp and a snow pea salad (recipe by Daniel Humm) recently. Oh yes, some spicy tofu fajitas too!

Anyone remember David's on Stuart Street?

The food at David's was rather mediocre New American if i remember correctly. The quirky decor with its stage-like red walls and somewhat dramatic lighting was more memorable than the cooking.
