Go West Young Man - La Posada, Meat House, Walden Italian Kitchen

La Posada in Arlington is excellent homey mex. Got the chimichanga / taco lunch plate. Both very good. House made hot sauces were firey and excellent. Nothing crazy here, but solid Mexican food.

Grabbed two, two pound porter house steaks at the meat house in Arlington. Dang those were nice steaks. $11.99 a pound for meat that would have been 2X+ as much at Savenors. See photo below, note that is a 12" cast iron skillet and notice the dollar bills for scale. They were 1.5" thick and awesome.

Finally Walden Italian Kitchen makes some of the best za (heavy on the semolina flour) in greater boston. We ordered 2 pies and ate em on the spot. Can't vouch for the slices. Similar to Sabatino's in Arlington when they are on, but I would give a slight edge for the sheer awesomeness of the crust to WIK. Had one with Sausage and peppers and the other with musrooms. Generous sausage, just plain excellent pizza.
