little bites

Tried a slice at Pig's Pizza by Brigham Circle last week and think I'll have to get a whole pizza to properly judge. They had four options by the slice and I chose bbq chicken w/ caramelized onions. It was tasty, the bbq sauce had a little kick, but the crust was too cracker-like for me. Which may just have been the fact that it was a slice that had sat around a while and got warmed up too much. And there weren't many onions on it. They have about 12 stools, owned by the Irish folks from the Squealing Pig. The juice bar still didn't seem to be up and running. Large thin slice w/ one topping is $2.50. Interesting combinations (duck confit is one topping) so I'll take a whole one home some nite.

Got an almond croissant at Athans (is that the spelling?) in Washington Sq. It wasn't your normal almond croissant, had a creamy custard filling that seemed like it was for the galaktobouriko (sp?). Ground almonds on top but didn't detect any almond paste and the filling didn't seem right.

Had lunch at Thai Dish on Newbury St., first time there. Newbury St. was dead as a doornail on that gray Sat. Got wide flat noodles with shrimp, red and green peppers in chili sauce, can't remember the official name. Pretty good, $6.75 with rice.
