Did a food trip south of Boston today, starting at Emma's in West Bridgewater for some bar pizza. Once again, the pies there were very good, and they had a 99-cent pizza special, so we each had a small pizza and a drink for about $6.00 total, give or take.

Next stop was at Montreal Fries, also in West Bridgewater, for some poutine and hot dogs. The poutine was outstanding, in my opinion; the hot dog and corn dog less so...what made the poutine so tasty was the fact that they use cheese curd with the fries and gravy, unlike some other places around Boston, which use regular cheese. It was a completely unusual place, and one of those roadside joints that I absolutely live for. It was probably the highlight of our trip.

Next up was a hot dog joint in Brockton called Frank's. The place was a bit on the dark and gloomy side, and it was about as no-frills as you'll get, but the dogs were very nice, not unlike Simco's in the respect that the not-quite foot longs extend well outside the bun, and the grilled hot dogs and buns are greasy and salty, but not overly so. This one surprised us a bit, as I had very low expectations of the place, considering there is no information whatsoever on it.

Finished up with fried chicken sandwiches and beer at Grumpy White's in Quincy while watching another frustrating Red Sox game. The fried chicken sandwiches were every bit as good as the boneless fried chicken plate that they have, and the fries were good once again there, but honestly, I was just about tapped at this point and was unable to finish my meal.

I won't mention the ice cream we got at Marina Bay afterwards because, well, it was rather ridiculous heading there after all the food we tried, but what can I say...
