I've been trying to get back to this Cambodian place in Revere for a few weeks. Finally made it today. Took the Blue Line...which ended in Maverick Sq..then a bus for the rest of the route. I thought it would be a pain in the ass when I realized the train wasn't running all the way...but that feeling went away with the first bite of "tiger tears." This is a crisp fried, spicy beef salad with an amazing burst of flavors... 1 of the top dishes in the Boston area...something I'd eat once a week if it was downtown. Fried quail with a pepper/vinegar dipping sauce was also delicious.

Traveling above ground; I was able to pass many "chowhound faves"...several tacqerias in Maverick, Uncle Pete's, Zefferano, and Santarpios.

Worth a trip!
