Day trip from Boston

Yes-- and the redcoats only had unicycles. Advantage, colonials.

Finally, Mary Chung: order what?

Thanks, Slim. I was hoping you'd chime in all concise like that!

Finally, Mary Chung: order what?

Somehow, after 15 years of eating across Boston, I've never made it to Mary Chung. What are the classic dishes there?

I am a Victim of Their Success

Like Yogi Berra once said: "That place is too crowded. Nobody goes there anymore"

Moody's banh mi

I'm usually a Dorchester Ave banh mi guy, but this is the second time I've had the Moody's version and it's just a thing a beauty, hounds.

You Are My Gyro: Mindblowing sandy at Ma Magoo's

Taralli gave the link-- Esperia has a pork version which is a little harder to come by in the world of shawarma/gyro.

You Are My Gyro: Mindblowing sandy at Ma Magoo's

On swank's swoony report, I tried the sandwich at Mama Goo's tonight. It is a gyro loaf version, with slices grilled to order instead of carved off a spit. Soft pita, cukes and dilly yogurt sauce. Tomatoes were better than the sub shop usual. I'll take Farm Grill and Esperia over Mama Goo's, but theirs is a solid rendition of the "gyro from a kit" genre.

Broccoli romanesco, a psychedelic (looking) vegetable!

Formaggio has had it recently.

H Mart Open in Central Square!

Yeah, on second thought maybe Spam is a good thing to miss out on. It's amazing how an American military presence in a country leaves such a dreadful culinary legacy.

Well, there are like twenty varieties of Spam that you'll be missing... ;-)

El Centro: Awful. Boston, terrible food city.

Slim, there's just no way to compare Boston cruel service to New York cruel service. If I really want to experience cruelty, I go to New York. I've given up on it here in Boston.

Best charcuterie - retail?

Moody's in Waltham. Formaggio does some of their own stuff.

Abe and Louie's.

I have a few hundred dollars in gift cards there. How should I use them? A side of French fries and a big pricey bottle of red?

Seriously though-- any particular steaks there that rise above their others?

Boneless Veal Shoulder

Try Fresh Pond Market on Huron Ave. If they don't have it, they should be able to get it in fairly short order.

My Grillo pickle mystery

katzzz, your post epitomizes why I love chowhound. Excellent sleuthing. I've found variance in grillo's pickles myself, but haven't associated it with "fridge-aging". Some batches just seem tangier.

BBQ Catering?

Tennessee Barbecue in Quincy does catering. We've used them a few times in recent years for a group that is about two-thirds carnivore and one-third vegetarian.

Cooks on Bailey Island near Brunswick is open.

Moody's Delicatessen and Provisions

With all due respect, meow, I think it's unfair to judge their sandwiches so harshly when sampled as take out.

Looking for Prime Bone-In Thick Cut Ribeye or Portehouse Steaks

They are located in the Milton Fruit Center. Good stuff.

Surprisingly good/bad coffee

The coffee at Darwin's, for all their hoop-de-doo about it, is really dreadful.

Pubs with cool fireplaces

The James Gate in Jamaica Plain. And while the food is only moderately good, the bar at The Red House in Harvard Square has a lovely little fireplace niche with three or four tables. You'll feel like you're in a Vermont inn.

Rooster Sauce

Rooster sauce=Sriracha. A judge in California ruled that the plant produces noxious fumes and therefore Sriracha must halt production.

Vegetarian near/on Charles Street?

Last minute plans change-- any suggestions for vegetarian-strong choices along Charles Street?

Best NY Style Pizza

Former New Yorker here myself. So you mean thin pies, manhole cover size, gotta fold the slice in half? Hard to find but I will say that Armando's in Cambridge reminds me of the NY pies of my childhood.

Fresh pita bread - where to get in Somerville / Cambridge?

The Middle Eastern shops along Mt Auburn Street in Watertown (right over the Cambridge line) are one option. You can find out what the delivery days are at Arax or Massis, to name a couple.
