Dorchester Eats

Just moved to Dorchester - looking for some guidance and input...

So far we've checked out...
Blasi's (perfectly decent though pretty basic)
Ashmont Grill (generally love it for burgers and brunch though a recent outing yielded some pretty dismal ribs - totally under cooked and really, really tough)
Tavolo (didn't love my one meal there but am planning on going back and trying other things)
dbar (haven't eaten there recently but have enjoyed meals there in the past)
The Ledge (fried calamari was nicely cooked but came with no dipping sauce of any kind which seemed odd. Burger was perfectly cooked)

We've also had good meals from the little butcher shop in Adams Village.

Abby Park, 224 Boston, 88 Wharf, Blarney Stone and Freeport Tavern are on the To0 Try list.
Spukies and Ashley's Breakfast Shop are on the list, too. Common Ground and Sonny's have been mentioned but with some reservations.

What am I missing? Which of the numerous Vietnamese spots are the best at what they do?
