Best Alfajores?

I've never found them in Boston so thanks for Rincon Limeno.

I know this is the Boston page, but if you ever find yourself in the West Palm Beach area, there is a bakery on Dixie near Forest Hill called "Napoleon" that has the most amazing alfajores EVER. this place is a national treasure.

Patak's Indian products...yay or nay?

agree on the biryani -- very disappointing. the garlic relish is addictive. Mango relish also good.

Miss Saigon in Amherst, MA

I finally got around to trying Miss Saigon, and it's GREAT! No one had gotten around to adding the restaurant to Chowhound yet, so i just did -- so go rate it if you want to.

Exceptional Mexican Food in Somerville

Mexican food is not the top of my list, cuisine-wise, but it is for my boyfriend. And every time he's in town he wants to go to Tu y Yo.

It really is exceptional Mexican food -- fresh, sophisticated flavors. The most amazing, tender, little tamales. Fragrant sangria. A good date night restaurant.

Very good Indian resto found in WPB

Saffron Restaurant is VERY HARD TO FIND in West Palm Beach, but fabulous, authentic food.

Taco "trucks" or roadside stands - WPB, Boca, Delray

Great Mexican truck behind the stables in Wellington: It's called "La Villa" and it's parked under some ficus trees at the corner of Pierson and Southfields Rds. in Wellington. Take Lake Worth Road west past 441, turn north on 120th Ave, west again on Pierson -- Southfields is the next cross rd. Fab burritos, tacos.

Sheila’s Famous Conch and BBQ in Lake Worth

Great conch salad! I usually don't like fish and chips -- too greasy. But Sheila's was light and fresh and very tasty -- made me understand the whole fried fish thing. Sadly, BBQ wasn't ready when we went there in early evening.

best breakfast in palm beach county

Once you try the keema omelette at the Pelican in Lake Worth you will crave it for the rest of your life. Also, the 'carrot cake' pancakes are awesome.

Palm Beaches - Best fried chicken?

You're not going to believe me, but Publix does a pretty damn good fried chicken in a box to go...

Something better than Central Kitchen?

Desfina in East Cambridge has really good Greek food. Midwest Grill on Cambridge St outside Inman Square has great quasi-Brazilian food. The Helmand is a little more expensive but worth it. Also a little more expensive than Green St but a nice laid-back place with great food is Lineage in Coolidge Corner.

one day in Boston, best Lobster Roll to brag about...

The lobster roll at J. Hook was the best in town, although it was strictly take-out. Definitely the most meat, very fresh. They say they're going to be opening up a retail trailer or something again.

Lineage?

I've been going there since it opened, just went back the other day -- IMHO it's one of the best restaurants in Boston. The oyster happy hour is brilliant!

Bistro 5 - Inconsistent Service

I live quite near Bistro 5 and go there several times a year, and have never had bad service. The food is very good, parking is plentiful, and I think it's a very romantic place for a date.

Worst of the Cape?

I have been going to the Cape since 1964 and have NEVER found a good restaurant.

Any Portuguese Food left on the Cape?

There used to be many good little Portuguese restaurants on the mid- and upper-Cape, in Hyannis, Falmouth, Mashpee, etc. Are there any left? I'd rather not schlep all the way up to Provincetown. Thanks!
