Best place for fried seafood/fisherman's platter?

ICOB is a great recommendation for fried clams or fish. Not sure they have a fisherman's platter on the menu but maybe they would do it for you. Atlantic Fish might be another option. It's funny I haven't noticed Fisherman's platters on very many menus lately. I also actually like Salty Dog. It's fun to sit outside and watch on the people walking by and they do a good job with fried stuff.

Inn at Bay Pointe in Quincy

I like the Inn at Bay Pointe. While maybe not chowish, the food is good. The space is comfortable and welcoming with many windows and water views. During warm weather there is dining outside. They also have a function room so the staff is experienced with larger groups. We had a company holiday party there once and it was the one time that no one had any complaints.

How long to cook stuffed pork chops?

Pork chops were successful. I browned them lightly on both sides first then put in a 350 degree oven uncovered, for 45 minutes. The meat was moist and the stuffing cooked through. Thanks all!!

How long to cook stuffed pork chops?

Thanks for the advice! I'll let you know how I make out. It's funny I've always considered myself a good cook but pork chops are something I haven't mastered.

How long to cook stuffed pork chops?

I'm not a big fan of pork chops, maybe because I've never had much luck cooking them. So I'm trying again with some store bought stuffed chops. I thought I would brown them a little first, then cover them and put them in a 350 degree oven for an hour? Any thoughts?

Trader Joes Chocolate Cheddar

I ended up using it to stuff dates and it worked out quite well.

Hofbrau Quincy moving up a notch

The Hofbrau is a local dive bar that has been around forever. Many locals would just drive right by. That could change now that they are offering food. We stopped by today with let's say not very high expectations well we had a nice surprise. The pizza was exceptional; bar size but not a bar pie. Traditional crust, tender with a nice crunch. Sausage sub served on a crusty toasted torpedo rolls served with handcut French fries and the double burger on an onion roll were all good. I want to go back and try their pulled pork. Kitchen is open at noon on Fridays and Saturdays and 3:00 on weekdays. They finally got it right.

Pepes Pizza coming to Boston

Saw an article on Boston.com this morning that New Haven's Pepes Pizza is expanding to Boston. White clam pizza anyone!

Trader Joes Chocolate Cheddar

It's a Trader Joes label. Description says "A creamy, mature English Cheddar with rich dark chocolate curls". Says it's a product of England. I like the idea of a fondue, or possibly in a pasta dish as a garnish grated on top. When I tasted it I felt the cheddar was prominent. Can't say I loved it but thought the flavor was interesting and if paired properly could be something special.

Trader Joes Chocolate Cheddar

Fondue could be really interesting! I'll have to look for a base recipe and adjust.

Trader Joes Chocolate Cheddar

I purchased a block of this cheese partially because it sounded interesting and partially because I tried chocolate goat cheese which I loved. Unlike the goat cheese which I knew exactly how I wanted to serve (spread on shortbread and topped with a strawberry) I'm having a hard time coming up with ideas for this cheese. It's a sharp cheddar with subtle undertones of chocolate. On it's own it's really rich. I'm thinking maybe I'll make something chocolate to pair it with. Any ideas?

Turducken question...

My feeling is if you skip the. stuffing you're losing out. I've only cooked one. I bought a boneless one for New Years at roche bros and if I remember correctly I roasted it for around 3 hours.

March 2014 Openings and Closings

Not sure when but DiNeros in Cohasset has closed. I happened to go on their website with plans to check their menu and their was a notice from the owner that it was closed and would be opened under new ownership. Since it's been awhile since I've been there maybe it already has reopened. Anyone know?

McKays (Quincy) not just breakfast

McKays has been on my to go list forever and while well known as a great breakfast spot they also do lunch. Today we headed out on a mission for fish and chips. At noon they were still busy with regulars having breakfast but we opted for the fish and chips and a fried scallop plate. Portions were large with 2 huge pieces of nicely fried and fresh fish. There is nothing better than a good fry job at least IMHO. The scallops were plentiful, easily 15 good size scallops. I also was surprised at the number of lunch items being offered and how good the prices were.

Butcher house south of boston

I live in Quincy and go to Kinnealys when I want steaks. The Butcher Shop in the Adams Village section of Dorchester has a good variety of sausages that they make in house but I don't like their steaks as well

ISO Port Muffins - the "Three Meal" muffin

I buy them at Hannafords in North Quincy. Used one this morning for an egg sandwich with bacon. The sweetness of the muffin goes great with the egg and bacon.

Clementines (imported from Morocco)

I picked up some at Hannafords in North Quincy. Very easy to peel.

What are you baking these days? February 2014 edition! [Through February 28, 2014]

My husband saw an episode or Mexican Made easy in which Marcela made a Cocoflan cake. He had been bugging me for ages to make it so I gave in. It was delicious. Nicely moist chocolate cake with a flan top, drizzled with Mexican caramel and chopped pecans. The only problem was I liked it so much I was having it for breakfast!

I must admit: I love the North End

While I don't in as often as I used to, I still enjoy the North End, even in the summer. My new favorite has been Beneventos. They do a great job with mussels. When I want to relax and sit at the bar my choice is Artu. For pizza even though I like Regina's I'm much more apt to go the Waterfront Cafe. When it's chicken parm I want my choice is Antico Forno. There is always a stroll afterwards with a stop at either Maria's or Paradiso.

food from the 60's

Cream cheese and cherry sandwiches made in crustless white bread cut in circles with a biscuit cutter. The same method for ham salad sandwiches.

"The China"?

That's a shame. We haven't tried it yet and I was thinking of maybe a takeout; now not so much. Parking isn't always easy there either. I suppose for a place to stop and have a few drinks maybe?

January 2014 Openings and Closings

That's too bad about the Ledge. It's a nice space and the staff is pleasant. Love their dry rub chicken wings and the Mac and cheese with butternut squash. Thir summer patio is one do the nicest around. When I was there a few months ago I felt like they had gotten everything right.

Swedish bakery products?

That's cool. I am the original poster and this thread is a year old but I do appreciate your info! I continue to order from Swedish Bakery in Andersonville and have been pleased with their products.

Two New Openings.

I would be curious about Memphis Joes. It would be fabulousto have a decent bbq in this area. While I haven't been to YoCha I do see people going in and out but it doesn't seem busy. Frozen yogurt this time of year doesn't really interest me but it would probably be nice to try their teas.

LOOKING FOR RABBIT IN A RESTAURANT

Marliave has rabbit on their menu. When I was there it was rabbit three ways which was quite good. I see now their menu says prosciutto wrapped tenderloin.
