Does anyone know where to find good kabanos (polish hunter's sausage) on the peninsula? These sausages last forever and so are great to take on camping trips, but I haven't been able to find a good source. Close to San Mateo would be preferable. Thanks!


Truly Bostonian Restaurants

I lived in Boston for eight years before moving to the Bay Area. For regional, not-too-expensive choices (my expertise, since I was a grad student at the time) I would suggest:

The Barking Crab - in South Boston. Picture long tables on the waterfront covered with brown paper. People in bibs all around you cracking crabs. You get the idea.

Grendel's den in Harvard Square, Cambridge. Come here for the atmosphere. The food is adequate, not great, but really cheap - especially during happy hour. But the crowd is great! Lots of students and academics. While you are in the square, get a hot chocolate at Burdick's or stop by Cafe Pamplona.

Mary Chung's is an MIT institution. Not too fancy chinese food, good spicy noodles (dun dun noodles) can be found here. Or you could just try wandering around chinatown.

Addis Red Sea is a great Ethiopian place in the South End, not TOO far from the convention center.

Just some ideas...

Hi all,

I'm trying to find a local source for Zuckerhut, the sugar cones used in the german flaming sugar-spiced wine drink called Feuerzangenbowle. Does anyone know any sources for this, or any likely german/international food stores? Something close to west san jose or palo alto (or points in between) would be great, but I'm willing to drive...
