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.

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.

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

Seafood dump on the table in Boston

Anybody have comments on the Yankee lobsters crab bucket? I haven't been but have seen some good reviews of other items on the menu. Are they the local rock crabs?

Tried to do the Harpoon tour on Sunday they were already sold out by noon, so even though they last tour is at 5 get there early to get on the list and either sit down for a drink at the bar or do some local touring and come back.

Any special MA or NE foods to look for try out/buy?

on the similar topic brown bread in a can, not sure if super markets outside the NE have it or not, not real special but a treat if you have been somewhere without a big fridge for a while.

Ethnic Markets that sell these Steamers?

Try the two commercial cooking supply place in china town, I forget the name, one is opposite Eldo cake house the other near Hei La Moon dim sum place, also Ming's supermarket just south of chinatown
(1102 Washington St Boston, MA 02118)
or the cmart location just down the street from ming's. Both groceries have parking lots.
Good luck

It's Strawberry Season Again! Anyone seen the local ones yet?

I've gone to sunshine farm/dairy in Sherborn/natick, and you can grab an ice cream before you leave. Here is a good resource to find one closer to you.

Boston to Cape

B.T's smokehouse the place in Sturbridge is more like a 10 minute detour, but call ahead since they are pretty popular so there may be a wait at peak times, closed on Monday's. They don't have table service and is byob.

Visiting Boston with a toddler

Had lunch at Galleria Umberto today, their posted vacation is 6/29-7/28, since you have kids go early to avoid the lines, and no A/C.

Visiting Boston with a toddler

FYI Galleria Umberto's usually is on vacation in July so you might want to have a back up plan in the NE, and check to see if anyone posts their vacation schedule.

Have a great visit,

Asian Soups w/ Delicious Broth, Even w/o the Solids ?

I haven't been in a while, but seven stars bistro in Rosindale has my favorite hot and sour soup.

Call ahead since they get busy, pretty much dinner take out only wed-sun.

I think that they make each soup to order so might be willing to do special requests.

Oh I like the broth in the sichuan meatball from sichuan gourmet (billerica) very thick soup and not spicy at all, maybe you can get someone to eat the meatballs and vegs that are in it.

Hope your 6 weeks go by fast.

My first meal at Island Creek Oyster Bar -- not great

No I am not, but I am sympathetic to those who make a living tending crops.

What was your point? Other than oyster farming is a racket to make money, because of the government subsidize.

Not sure how much of the profit the oyster farmer gets from a place that has $4 dollar oysters, or when a place runs a $1/oyster special since they probably wholesale for about a dollar.

I’m sure that there is no pork left in the 3 trillion dollar budget for agriculture other then oyster farmers.

Like you I do vote with my dollars.

Sure an easy life where the red tide rolls in or too much rain runoff with dog/human feces will shut down your production. Plus all the other things that target those tasty morsels. Isn't it a business where free market should control the prices?

Ethnic or Interesting in and around Metro Southwest

There is a branch of Sichuan Gourmet in Sharon. The middle eastern groceries/takeout(sabbs?) place on route 1 near ocean state job lot in Norwood. Haven't been in a while but there used to be others on 1a (Byblo's?). Taso's greek food at the airport in Norwood. Byblo's has Belly dancing on Friday's and is probably more of going out place then the others.
