Maryland style crabs near Boston

Yes Blue crabs are the MD type crabs, but from what I have seen the ones they sell in chinatown are mostly females and on the smaller side, from what I remember males are highly regarded down in MD for their bigger swimmer meat. An afternoon cracking crabs is a social event. Almost any place (shaws, market basket etc) will sell old bay seasoning which you sprinkle on top of the crabs before steaming.

Will the oyster stand be open in the summer? In past years it and the fish mongers always go away during the heat of summer. Just wondering

Best ice cream in Boston is..

They weren't suppose to close, but change names, I went shortly after (2-3 years?)the makers of brigham's ice cream said they were stopping making brigham's ice cream for wholesale. The people there said they had secured other vendors that would allow them to keep making things that were close to the original, haven't been back since.

Missing Maine Shrimp (year 2), Looking forward to Shad Roe & Soft Shell Crabs

Fresh pond seafood in Arlington said it should be getting shad roe around now, and I'm sure court house and new deal in Cambridge will get it as soon as it's available.

Where to buy corned beef and cabbage (Waltham, Boston)?

Blue ribbon just updated their fb page to included corned beef dinners, in the past the Chateau restaurants usually has corned beef dinners on St. Patricks day. If those are closer to you.

Owner and Baker of Betty Ann food shop passed away

The beloved bakery shop Betty Ann food shop in east Boston posted the passing of it's owner Billy Scantlebury, today. The food shop has had to open and close in the past years because of health issues. I was fortunate enough to get some more donuts last year when they briefly re-opened during the summer.

This was a real old timey bakery with great donuts.

Regional snacks for gifts?

Not sure if other links already listed this but just outside Boston city lines in Milton and definitely non perishable Hard tack from G. H Bent Co ( http://stores.bentscookiefactory.com/

)

This stuff propelled New England ships around the world.

Lobster's at MB for $4.99lb...

I have had some pretty soft shell lobsters out of the lobster coops even until the first week of November. The usual reason that they are cheaper is because they are not hardshells.

Local trash fish

I did a walk by most of the seafood markets in chinatown (sun sun, happy family, ming yu) and they all had scup, macks and squid. Ming yu had chix lobsters $3.99/lb.

ISO the best noodle for lo mein

Good luck on trying to make that dish as good as 7 stars :) I think the super wok gives them an edge in cooking. I'm sure you can just ask them where they get their noodles they are very nice. If I lived closer I'm not sure I would make my own.

ISO the best noodle for lo mein

Yes sun sun is the store I was thinking about, I often will go if I'm in Chinatown because it is not a chain, and they carry the hoy toy noodles fresh, the chains usually carry a precooked noodle from out of town. Nice to hear about the owner being so helpful.

ISO the best noodle for lo mein

Have you tried the yellow noodles from hoy toy noodle company? I think they aren't in all the bigger stores, but the asian store on oxford street toward beach street from the hoy toy noodle company usually has them, that is unless you want to buy in bulk from the factory
