Taro Chips near Boston?

I thought I saw them at Costco the other week, but not 100% sure, I will look next time I'm there.

You can try this link not sure if it is up to date since they still list bread and circus, but you can call the stores any way.

two nights in boston with family

here are a couple of links to help you refine your questions.

You should specify price point and what kinds of food that interest you the most also where you are from so we don't send you to somewhere you home is noted for. Like bbq if you are coming from memphis. When are you visiting? Graduation time in Boston will be hectic (may).

Lamb chops?

If you are in the Needham area you can try Dewar's at Volante farms, you can call and see if they can get what you want.

Reservation Confirmation.

The policy doesn't bother me, but I'm sure you are just one of many.

If you understand the reason, is for the restaurant to make a profit and stay in business maybe you should be more flexible.

This maybe a disconnect between open table and the restaurant does the restaurant get your email address from open table or just phone numbers?

I hope in your world you would also think about solving more serious problems and just execute those who double book reservations or don't show up.

Weekend lunch at Chestnut Hill?

Haven't been in ages if you are looking for Asian food Benard's is much better than typical mall food/chains.

2014 Food Truck Schedule for Boston released

And one would think that Lilian's Smokin' Rack Barbecue would have ribs :)

Or something that is probably banned in bean town.

2014 Food Truck Schedule for Boston released

I went by today and they started without any ribs, they apologized and said they got behind and didn't do any today. They said they should have them next week.

I didn't taste any smoke either forgot to ask if they actually smoke their stuff or not. I got a chicken and a pulled pork slider on nice buns (iggy?).

I liked the the meats, weren't soggy or mushy. The bbq sauce was like duck sauce ran over by bbq sauce tasty but different.

Big Pig BBQ, Lynnfield

On site or just roasted pig brought on site? Places will charge you much more to do it on site since they need to dedicate manpower to just one thing.

Here is a link about someone looking for bbq catering for south boston. I think since the scene for good bbq is limited in Boston, I can't think that there will be much better up your way.

no lobstertail in MA?

This email thread is pretty old 2012, I think the law changed recently so that frozen lobster tails are now legal for whole sellers can sell them in MA now.

Sell outs/things that sell out fast

I stopped in there a while ago after seeing this article, good pizza. Staff seemed to be younger than 60 so your Louie might have been off that day.

Searching for a great Hot Dog as winter winds down.

Looks like Mendon/Bellingham is south of the pike out by 495, I found this page that says rte 140 in Bellingham.

https://www.facebook.com/groups/76218...

I found some older links at other addresses that seem to be wrong (23 Cape Rd Mendon, MA 01756, 264 N Main St Bellingham, MA 02019).

Good luck and let me know what you find

Boston's weirdest desserts?

I love them both Indian pudding, and the "soup" you get after a Chinese banquet either tapioca or red bean.

BYO in Boston

this is to a link a couple years old, but I don't believe it has changed in Boston proper, but it seems it's up to local towns to decide if they allow it or not.

Have you tried an Asian store like C-mart or H-mart? I thought I saw them in the Chinatown store last time I was in, but can't be sure.

Good source for pie?

Well not sure you will find better, Petsi's has a new cafe just 4 blocks north of lechmere station, you might have to call ahead to make sure they have what you want.

Pink curing salt in Boston?

For some strange reason this topic seems to come up about the same time every year :))

A little searching will work wonders, just in case it isn't covered in the posts have you tried Christina's in cambridge?

90 college kids for dinner?

How about some of the bigger places in Chinatown, I have seen bus loads of people going to Hei la moon, but I would imagine any of the big places down there have room and you could make a menu that fits your price point.

I haven't been but their website says they have cup cakes maybe the clerk didn't understand your question or maybe didn't have them in stock.
