Anone try Crave Mad for Chicken yet?

I've been.
I went just after they opened, still working out the kinks.
I wont dwell on little service miscues.
chicken was of good quality, tasted clean and fresh.
we tried the Mad sauce, it was weak. Not much flavor.
the fry job was first rate. Wings and drumsticks were super crispy. We ordered a second plate with angry sauce to see if the flavor was better. Hot! really hot. I would have liked something in between the two.
short appetizer list, but I'm sure that has to do with just opening.
for me, its still Bon Chon.

Good Bagels in Brookline

I seem to recall that Cutty's has bagels on the weekends. Bagelsaurus? some thing like that. Kind of a bagel bakery inside the restaurant. there is a ex clear flour alum doing the baking. Hand made, small batches
Not quite in Brookliine, but Blue Frog Bakery is making bagels on the weekends too. Again small batch and hand made

Bakery made hotdog rolls?

Blue Frog Bakery makes hot dog rolls in two versions. Potato roll and a Vienna roll.
Not sure if the size is right.

Whole bean coffee: identifying characteristics and local recs

I am a fan of Rao's Coffee. They roast in Hadley MA, and they are available around the Boston Area, Just not sure of all the locations. I know that you can get beans as the Boston Cheese Cellar in Rozzie.

Commonwealth - Cambridge

I would call the chicken lightly spiced . Mind you my mouth was still a little numb from the bloody mary.

Commonwealth - Cambridge

Hit Commonwealth for brunch yesterday.
Sat quickly, server came by quickly and took our drink order. Waited about 10 min to get them. Mimosa for $5 seemed to be a good deal, fresh squeezed oj, and bubbles of some kind. bloody Mary was so mouth scorching hot, I had to send it back.
Ordered dozen oysters, fried chicken and biscuits and the pastrami hash.
oysters never came, server forgot to put them in.
Hash wasn't so much a hash as warm pastrami topped with a potato galette. Super thin strands of potato fried. that aside, it was delicious. Poached eggs were cooked perfect. chicken and biscuits with sausage gravy was HUGE! a lot of food for the price. Biscuits were crunchy on the outside but moist inside. gravy was more sausage than gravy, which is not bad at all where I come from, and the chicken was crisp and jucy.

Other than the service faux pas, Great time for $44

Went there Friday for lunch. According to the waitress they have been open for 9 years. Just took over the space next door and renovated. Had the bi bim bap. Not too knowledgeable about Korean food, but everything tasted great and was fresh.

Rossie/ West Rox eats

Masona Grill and Redds are far and away much better than Pleasant or WoC.
I find WoC just backs the Sysco truck up to the kitchen door. Pleasant is just an old school bar that happens to have food. most of it not good.

Went to see some music at Brich Street Bistro, didn't eat but the food going by looked pretty good. which would be a welcome change for BSB.

newbie. In search of... Vachon pastries for a dear friend's birthday present.

These are the LIttle Debbie cakes of Canada. If you didn't grow up with them they are not worth eating. And I am not saying this because I grew up with them and want all of them for myself. Ah Caramel! and Jos louis just make me think of my childhood!

Rocca has closed

I only went to Rocca once. This was in the first year. I don't remember what we ate. I do remember that when we ordered drinks, the bartender opened a little can of pineapple juice. In the world of the $12 custom made, fresh juice cocktail, this just didn't measure up.
I knew, right then and there, I wouldn't be back.
