Dim Sum in Boston

somebody clue me in. what benefit is there in keeping a good restaurant a secret? i thought the whole point of this board was to share knowledge that is unbiased. since so many restaurants go out of business or change their menus, it seems that the more people who request the tasty items the more likely that those items will remain available for years to come.

Boston Best Mexican Food?

of course you are right. i'll try to get over myself. i'm a Cali transplant and have been "just visiting" boston for 14 years! . . . i guess i need to check out some other chowhound threads about good seafood in boston because quite honestly, i find that the seafood that i got on San Fran's wharf has been better than anything that i have tasted here. i guess i just havent found the right places. we tried jimmy's on the wharf and i was underwhelmed, but maybe i did not order the right dishes. and then again, it doesnt help that i dont like oysters,clams,mussels and firm flesh fish.

Boston Best Mexican Food?

Amen to that. I am a S.F. native and I keep getting disappointed with the Mexican food here. seems like any hole in the wall in the Mission is better than the "best" mexican food here. but i havent tried Angela's yet, so i'll try not to be such a snub and give it a shot

The Best Donuts in the Planet are in East Boston...

as it turns out, my Mom is in Monterey right now and will be flying back tomorrow. i called her and told her to pick up some donuts for me at Red's. thanks for the tip!!

Dinner & Dancing-not a club

We are in our 40s and love a good meal with dancing afterwards. we definitely do NOT want the young teeny bop or even college aged club scene, but an elegant time with similar aged folks. when we went to NYC we found many such places. in fact one place taught swing dance lessons and we had a great meal. we danced a little, ate a little, then danced some more. it was the best. havent found anything like that here in the boston area. anybody have any recs?

recommendations for a sushi-virgin?

if you're sushi naive, you may want to try maki - a sushi with cooked fish to begin with. try a dragon maki (smoked eel, avocado, rice, seaweed, cucumbers) this is my favorite. you can also try some of the tempura based sushis. try the spider maki - it has fried soft shell crab. the best sushi i've found so far has been at fugakyu in brookline. but its very expensive - $30/person. Oishu is supposed to be even better, but i hear its a hole in the wall. fugakyu is very nicely laid out. check the boards, there are a lot of threads about sushi from people who know more. but i am not a big raw fish fan, so i can speak to the how delicious the "cooked" sushi offerings are.

best breakfast near woburn

i went to bickford's in boston near south bay mall off exit 18 (from 93) and my goodness it was the absolute worse breakfast i have ever eaten in my life. i vowed never to go to another bickfords but as fate would have it. a group was gathering at bickfords for a celebration so i did go back. this time, it was still bad but not horrible. i was at least pleasantly surprised that they had grits - not an easy to find item. i like grits cooked somewhat thick, with butter, salt and pepper. anyway, i certainly do not recommend bickfords unless you have not other choices available

LA STANZA DIVA/Woburn,MA

oh now i know where it is. in fact, i had lunch at the new japanese,asian restaurant across the street from it today. it looked kind of spooky. i thought someone might be trying to do fortune telling in there. i dont want anyone casting any spells over my food. i think i'll stay clear afterall. i'm getting less adventurous in my old age . . .

Community sustainable seafood

we love fish in our family, but try to stick to one serving per week because we have small kids and worry about the mercury content and its long term affects on the brain. any idea what the mercury content of this locally caught fish is? also, is it too late to sign up for it since its way past june 10th? finally, try frying the fish whole without flour. just cut a few slits into the fish salt and pepper it, and deep fry it. its so tasty and delicious to eat off the bone. works best with tilapia.

looking for non sweet Thai food

The Restaurant, Woburn

ugh. i went back yesterday for more fries and they have changed their fries!!! they arent good anymore. double ugh

looking for non sweet Thai food

My mom and I love Thai food and we come from San Fran where the Thai food is by and large not sweet. here, we cant seem to order a dish that is not loaded with sugar. it doesnt really bother me much, but my mother hates sweets (must be a genetic defect). it seems that many restaurants get lazy, dont want to season with authentic seasonings so that just load it up with sugar and it satisfies the American taste buds. so i would love to find a Thai restaurant, or even a singular dish on a menu that has a delicious non sweet dish.

I did find a surprise at the burlington mall, there is a new thai restaurant there that is actually pretty good. i've only tried their chicken and beef curry, but i have to say it is darn good (albeit a bit sweet!)

and has anybody found decent pad thai anywhere. i know that brown sugar had a decent pad thai, but havent been there in a while.

best breakfast near woburn

I'm looking for a good breakfast place with light fluffy pancakes, soft eggs, good sausage.

The Restaurant, Woburn

I think The Restaurant is just okay, but i like their french fries and their jalepeno hamburgers. the cooks are fun, light hearted characters and they have a kids menu that is fairly cheap with large portions for a kid -sometimees i order off the kids menu. i find the breakfast there to be just okay, but then again i am very hard to please when it comes to breakfast. i thought their pancakes were not good (dry, sort of heavy), eggs were overcooked.
