NOT coming to a restaurant near you! What foods never make it to restaurants -- and why?

The Mandalay was the best! There is a Burmese restaurant in Allston, MA now - Yo Ma. Haven't liked it much, unfortunately.

worst sushi

Worst includes Takeshima and Mr. Sushi in Brookline, Ginza in Chinatown. Ginza in Brookline is better. Fugakyu and Oishii are best in Boston area. Inaho in Yarmouth/Cape Cod is the best sushi in Massachusetts!

What's good in Waltham?

If you like tapas, the small plates at Solea on Moody Street are good.

Waltham Lunch Recommendations

Watch City Brewery is fine for lunch, esp if you like to try different beers. Menu has improved and expanded in past couple of years.

for next time- Sol Azteca has great Mexican food on Beacon Street a block further west after Elephant Walk. Great sangria, best salsa and chips of all time, and wonderful entrees. Dine inside or out.
