I have a strange request. I'm going to book a solo dinner for myself at Saito but I was wondering if there was anything around there that's also good to eat. My wife is not a sushi lover and she would rather not drop $200+ on a meal that she won't really enjoy.

Any places that you can recommend around there. Would appreciate your thoughts. It doesn't even have to be high end...hehe.

Thanks!

Has anyone been to this place before? There's one in Ginza and one in Kobe. Did a search but didn't come up with any results.

Would love to know if anyone has tried it and if it's good. :)

Best Chinese outside of Chinatown?

i go to victoria's on a weekly basis and i've never had a bad meal. what are you ordering there that makes it poor?? their selection of rice plates is nice and cheap.

again i ask you, what did you order at new trend? i've been there several times and never had any problems at all.

chinatown- pea pod stems, wonton soup

if you want some authentic wonton soup, head over to hong kong eatery. they have great wontons over there.

if you're willing to venture out to somerville, soundbites is great. that place seriously serves some of the BEST breakfast and it's pretty cheap. they expanded recently so it seats more ppl now. there's always a line out the door.

Has anyone tried Kaya in Porter sq lately?

it's over priced and not that great either.

the only decent korean food is over at bukk yung in union square in somerville. you go there for the jjajangmyun which is noodles in black bean sauce and onions. don't go to bukk yung II in brighton. it's not as good. if you've ever been to taiwan cafe, they have ja jang mien there, but it's the chinese version. it's tastes different and they also use a black bean sauce...it's a more brownish color.

other stuff you can try over at bukk yung is kam pong gi which is deep fried spicy chicken. it's actually not that spicy. their jampong is not bad either. it's a noodle dish with seafood (cuttlefish, mussles, prawns, squid) in a RED spicy soup. this is actually pretty hot.

sadly, the best places for korean is in LA, VA (annandale) or NY (flushing)/NJ (fort lee, pal park).

i laughed at their slogan when i first saw it too the other day. i'll try it for the sake of trying it but pinkberry's is also highly overrated.

Best Dim Sum in MA/RI?

actually i don't think tha'ts true. hei la moon is one of the better places in boston and NYC. chinatown in NY is so hit or miss and i'm not very fond of the dim sum in NYC.
