Gluten free cake?

I haven't seen her for a while, but there was a woman at the SOWA market who made amazing vegan and gluten free desserts. The name of her company was Baked By Trizmo. Her stuff was delicious.

How's the pizza in Boston?

a thin crust slice from Armando's is the best in the area (they recently started selling sicilian but not a real difference between theirs and Pinnichio's). StriperGuy, please keep not going to Armando's; more slices for me.

LA transplant looking for the Best Mexican Food /Markets in the Area (ESPECIALLY MOLE!!!)

Try Emiliano'z in West Medford on Boston Ave. Really good food. Run by a father and his family. The chef is the father/owner. Great Pozole on certain days. Non-greas and lots of love/care put into the food.

Flora, meh!

Always heard good things about this place but unfortunately will never go again.

The only thing that was good about the entire evening was the corn/bacon chowder.

My salad was over-dressed and I could only eat a few bites. Entrees were mushroom spaetzle and striped bass. Neither dish had even a hint of salt, any other spice, or flavor. I am not the type to complain and I appreciate healthy food (low salt and/or butter) but this was just plain bland and boring.

For $100.00 plus, (had a few drinks) I would really expect a lot more than what we got. Maybe I'm missing something, or not getting the philosophy behind the food but I was completely underwhelmed.
