M&M Ribs [swoon]

Maybe I need to try these again. Last time I tried the ribs they looked and tasted like they had been boiled and slapped on the grilled just to give marks. There wasn't a hint of smoke ring.

Taro and Ti Leaves?

Thanks for the suggestions. I should have been clearer in my title...I'm looking for Taro leaves and Ti leaves.

I'll hit Kamman this weekend/

Taro and Ti Leaves?

I"m trying to hunt these down for a friend. I've checked Supper 88 with no luck.

Has anyone seen these around town?

Coming to Boston from Austin and need HELP!! Please!! :)

Yes, there is the Q Restaurant in Chinatown.

I was just correcting PinchOfSalt's comment that Little Q Hotpot is in North Cambridge when it is actually in East Arlington.

New Jumbo is one of our favorites and I can't resist the Salty Spicy lobster. So good.

Helmand is a 5-6 block walk from the Lechemere stop on the Green line or 1/2 a mile to the Kendall stop on the redline. Neither of which are bad walks at all.

A Post-Thanksgiving Review of Boston Area Pies

This happened to me!

I was quite po'd when I found my Thanksgiving dessert was a big pile of mold instead of the lovely pumpkin pie I was looking forward to eating.

$10 mold pie. What a waste.

Where are good restaurants in Boston and Burlington, when you want to have oysters and lobster?

I don't think the 80 year olds in the party will want to schlep around on the train much.

Neptune Oyster in the North End is exactly what you are looking for. It's a small place that gets crowded at night so I would recommend lunch if you aren't up for a wait. If you don't mind the wait you can put your name on the list and they will call your cell phone when your table is ready.

Epic last meal in Boston

If there is a line Neptune will take your cell number and call you when your table is ready. Waiting on the Greenway is great.

20 people, wants lobster, Chinese style

Which garage? We love Jumbo, but the hubby hates the parking. This could mean there is more Spicy Salt lobster in my future :)

1st Annual Food Truck Festival

I respect Clover's decision to not participate and I don't think they hurt their business at all by doing so. With 3 trucks that regularly have long lines and a brick and mortar opening in the near future they seem to have built their own enthusiastic audience that is sustaining their business beyond their original expectations.

For what it's worth, I wouldn't wait 5 minutes for M&M ribs. When we tried it the ribs had obviously be boiled and barely touched to the grill. Definitely not the bbq we expected.

Speeds is good but not 2 hour wait good.

Clover didn't participate because, according to their blog, they do not get involved with promoting other for-profit brands.

Fat Cat's XXX Wings

You taunt me! We still haven't been able to hit it when it doesn't have 1hr + wait times.

We attempted Fat Cat a few weekends ago and encountered a 2 hour wait at 5:30! We couldn't even squish into the bar to get drinks. It was crazy.

Annapurna horrible disappointment

Seems odd that they won't honor a gift card, did they give a reason?

Lord Hobo

Thank you, celeriac! I live in the neighborhood as well and am very happy to have Lord Hobo. Just because they have high priced items on the menu doesn't mean you have to order them!

Like celeriac, I don't really understand the big difference between the beloved B-Side. Obviously the beer list is different, but both have/had high priced menu items and low priced menu items.

I don't know, once I figured out that punching myself in the face hurt, I'd stop doing it. Seems silly to continue punching myself in the face and then complain to everyone about how much it hurt.

Lord Hobo

My husband and I went right before Thanksgiving and enjoyed ourselves. I know the place is new, but I was really struck by one of the bartenders lack of knowledge of the beer and beer list. He really had no clue about the beer at all. I asked if they had a particular beer on still on tap and he said no. period. No offer of 'If you like that, you might like this'. I was a bit peeved when I saw the beer I asked about being served in a bottle....uh, why didn't he tell me he had it in the bottle? We were 2 of 6 at the bar and most of the staff were more interested in chatting with each other in the service area than dealing with customers.

Anniversary dinner for a beerhound

Unless they have more than what they show online, it's not very impressive for a Belgium lover. Chimay, Ommegang and Brooklyn are pretty standard.

I'd hit up Publick House for a few before dinner especially if he's into sours.

Thin pork belly - braise?

I purchased a pork belly to braise and when I unpackaged it, I discovered that it is only half an inch thick including skin. Would you still braise and if so, for how long?

Pre-pregnancy feast

<how do you know when to have this meal if it's PRE-pregnancy? well I guess you can just keep eating everything on the list until you get preggers.>

That's what I was thinking...
As someone who is, a year later, trying to get pregnant I wouldn't think about having a 'forbidden foods' meal. Live it up while you aren't pregnant and cut back when you are.

Inexpensive wedding cake or wedding cupcakes

I love the cupcakes at Whole Foods @ $3.99 each you'd be able to do it for well under $700. With a simple stand you could get a 6 inch cake for cutting and you'd be all set. The WF cupcakes have huge roses and I think would make a beautiful display.

Good eats near Franklin Park Zoo or surrounding area

Singh's Roti is on Columbia Rd. Right at the intersection of Columbia, Mass Ave and Boston St.

Definitely worth a stop.
