Hometown/Buk Kyung, Union Sq., Somerville

gangponggi is awesome -- be sure to get it the wings on the bone. Great Korean-Chinese fried chicken in a sweet & sour sauce.

yangzhangpi -- a melange of meats and vegetables with chewy bean sheets and a serious chinese mustard sauce -- huge serving, but somehow not as complex as I would have liked it. Still good and fun with a crowd.

gangjajang - my old favourite of the sludgy bean paste dotted with meat and chopped onions and zuchinni with noodles. As good as ever.


Cafe Baraka, Central Sq., Cambridge

The squab bastilla is still as impressive as before, evocative mint above the aura of mutlifaceted herbal and fruit flavours, savoury and sweet, wrapping themselves around the earthy squab. Densely sweet figs, fragilely crisp filo. Delicious.

Fries and ultimate veggie platter were also excellent as in the past.
