Cambridge Allston Updates?

I immersed myself in our new software looking to research lunch/supper (as opposed to 'Dinner') possibilities.

So far, have come up with:
--Reef Cafe
--Dok Bua. (what's best for this Lotus Of Siam/Issan afficianado?)
--Shanghai Gate (Garden?) (what's best?)
--Color, homestyle Korean, Korean fried chicken

Are these all still good? Would Dok Bua deliver to hotel (see below)? Is the menu online? How good is Aneka Rasa--is it exc?

I guess fried clams are out of the question absent a CH convoy to Essex Seafood. Sigh.

Could not find any consensus on exc. Portuguese. Anyone?

I've a couple of lunches and suppers this week, while headquartered at the D'tree Guest Suites 400 Soldiers Blvd in Allston bouncing over to the Royal Sonesta on conference days...on foot, hotel shuttle, by cab, and by bus. Galleygirl? Limster?

PS--closest decent b'fast near this hotel?

Culled from research:
Galleygirl: "Just remember, it's Victoria Seafood, not Victoria Cafe! So, of course, if you stick to the seafood, and specials, you'll do better. Their twin lobster with ginger and scallion, or however you choose it, is equal to Peach Farms', at a smaller price...they do very good stuff with greens and crab, conch and veggies, and anything on the special menu. Check the tanks. Ignore the clay pots, they do, indeed, suck..."

more galleygirl re Dok Bua 411 Harvard St., Brookline. From 3 years ago...Squid Salad, off menu Thai Seafood soup, "And speaking of "HOT", that's how we ordered everything, Thai Spicy...I've been told to add, "Pet,pet", the Thai thanslation...It must be working; everytime I leave, the glow follows me for hours, as I plan my next visit."
