The 2 versions that I'm going to include here- I have not heard mentioned on previous years' posts.I've been enjoying these for years and wanted to share w/ youall.
Sonsie on Newbury Street, in addition to consistently innovative and delicious food, has just the BEST onion rings- for me. They are smoked in a small smoker, then coated w/ flour and fried. no batter.
I get them takeout and they keep a good week or more in the frig.I reheat them in a toaster oven, on a bak. pan, covered with a disposable alum.take-out pan(so they heat to get crispy, but don't burn); oven set on Bake at 350 degrees- ready in 7 plus minuites. YAY!!
Lucy's Wok and Noodle at Huntington Ave/Mass Ave corner.Wonderful toothsome noodle dishes and so many other things. Their Rodeo Rings are spicy crisp, again no thick batter, and perfectly accompanied by a super chipotle catsup.
