Best Steak & Cheese in MetroWest?

Thanks for the replies. Yes I have tried Carls and it is good. I was hoping for some hidden gems in the area from Holliston and Ashland down to Bellingham or anywhere along 109.

Found a great 'slow' hot dog in Bellingham

Moved to route 140 in Mendon.

Best Steak & Cheese in MetroWest?

Where is the best steak and cheese sub in the MetroWest area? I am not a fan of the finely chopped junk they sell at most every pizza place around here. The best I have found so far is at Oliva's in Milford, but the hours make it so that I can almost never get there. All replies are appreciated.

Best Providence Bakery

Thanks again for the suggestions. We ended up just getting dessert at the restaurants as it seemed that most of the bakeries in the area were closed at that time.

Best Providence/Federal Hill BAKERY

Thanks again for the reply OOliver. After reading your response, I looked online and DeLuise definitely fits the bill, but there is one detail that I did not mention. We are going to dinner at 8 and would like to grab dessert afterwards. DeLuise, and I would imagine most bakeries, are going to be closed when we are done eating so I suppose this will limit our options.

Best Providence/Federal Hill BAKERY

Thanks for the reply shutterbugRI. Yes, by traditional I meant Italian pastries like Mike's. Scialo's, while it fits the mold, just had bland and flavorless pastries as compared to the quality of Mike's and Modern. Thanks again.

Best Providence Bakery

Hi,
We are going to Federal Hill tonight for dinner. Last 2 times there, we tried 2 different bakeries that disappointed. Pastiche and Scialo Bros. Scialo was slightly better than Pastiche, which was more of an upscale coffee shop than a bakery. We like traditional dessert style bakeries like Mike's and Modern in the North End. Can anyone recommend a place in the Providence area that is comparable? It does not have to be right on Federal Hill as we are driving. Thanks in advance for all replies.

Werthers Popcorn

Wifey found some of this Werthers Popcorn in the Myrtle Beach area. This is caramel popcorn by the makers of the hard candies. Has anyone seen it around here? I know I can order it online, but if I can buy it locally that would be easier. Thanks in advance for all replies.

Any great donuts in Metrowest?

Bringing this thread back. Carrie Anne's is closed. Any good donuts in the Franklin/Medway/Millis/Holliston area? Thanks.

Jammie Dodgers

Thanks very much catsmeow.

Jammie Dodgers

Thanks. I checked the international aisle but didn't see an Irish/English section at all. This was at the Millis store. The grocery manager was very helpful and said he would try to order them in for a future shipment.

Jammie Dodgers

devilham are they in the regular cookie aisle? I checked another Roche Bros and they did not have them. Thanks.

Jammie Dodgers

Thanks very much for all the replies.

Jammie Dodgers

No, just intrigued by all I have read online about them.

Jammie Dodgers

Thanks very much.

Jammie Dodgers

Does anyone know where to buy Jammie Dodgers in the Boston area? I know that Wegmans in Northboro has them, but are they available anywhere in the Boston area or Woonsocket RI area? Thanks in advance for any help.

FLAVACOL for popcorn?

I am an Amazon prime member myself. When I looked the other day, the single carton sized portions of Flavacol, which is over 2 pounds and will literally last a family YEARS, is only available to purchase with Prime as an add-on product and not by itself.

FLAVACOL for popcorn?

Thanks for the replies. Yes, we use coconut oil in our popcorn machine and yes, it is readily available online. I am looking for a source to buy it from locally to avoid paying $8 to ship a $2 item.

FLAVACOL for popcorn?

Does anyone here know where Flavacol can be purchased in the Metro West or Boston area? There is a place in Lawrence but I never get up that way. For those that do not know, Flavacol is the ingredient that movie theaters add to their popcorn that gives it that flavor that you can never reproduce at home without it. Thanks.

Ben & Jerry's Cannoli ice cream

Anyone find cannoli on the shelves yet?

Ben & Jerry's Cannoli ice cream

Key Lime is available at the Roche Bros in West Roxbury.

Food Truck Throwdown

Sounds interesting FinnFPM. Where is it available in the Boston/RI area?

Ben & Jerry's Cannoli ice cream

Still have yet to see the Cannoli flavor...

Ben & Jerry's Cannoli ice cream

catsmeow I saw Key Lime Pie at a couple of different Roche Bros supermarkets within the last week. Anyone seen the Cannoli flavor anywhere yet?

Herrs Heinz Ketchup Potato Chips

Which Ocean State was that Bear? Thanks for the info.

Herrs Heinz Ketchup Potato Chips

L2K I went to Village Market yesterday afternoon and they had none. Unless you mean the other small store on the right side of the road just before Village Market, which is on the left side when coming from Main St. Thanks.

Herrs Heinz Ketchup Potato Chips

Thanks for the replies. I looked online for Market Basket in Everett and couldn't locate a store there. Did you mean Chelsea? Thanks again. I will also try OSJL too Jenny.

Herrs Heinz Ketchup Potato Chips

Struck out everywhere despite the good suggestions. Anyone else have a place that carries these? Thanks in advance.
