Chester Fried Chicken Salgadhinos? The BEST!

MB fka MB | Apr 15, 2006 05:01 PM

Went for pedicures today on Medford Street at Broadway in Somerville (Magoun Sq. right by Wang's Fast Food). Right next door to Mimi's nails (decent job for $23 by the way), there is a little Brazilian take-away restaurant(-ish). Above the awning is an old Chester Fried Chicken sign and on the windows in vinyl lettering some menu items are listed. Pasteis, juices, etc. They've got a case on the counter right in the front full of salgadhinos - there appeared to be a lot of variety (also listed on the menu), but it was quite tough to get an explanation and we just ended up with being offered chicken or beef.

Anyway, I had the BEST salgadhino ever. Normally ham and cheese is my thing, but I got a beef one. First, they were giant, so be warned. The dough is a bit thicker than most, not greasy, but the filling is what won me over. So bright and tasty. The beef was ground, but not too finely, some onion, green pepper perhaps, a little sweet. It had lots of green onion that really wowed me. Great deal for $1.30.

A little further down Medford St. (away from the Square) is a Brazilian buffet - my friend had stopped in once and got a great meal, but I've never tried it. We popped our heads in today and I've got to tell you it was the freshest looking I've seen. Lots of usual suspects, plus fried chicken, lots of meat dishes and a full on meat grilling station at the end. Sorry that I don't remember the name...perhaps someone will chime in. Oh, and it was BUSY.
