I've promised some friends that I would take them on a food tour and then cook up a storm. They live in the South End, so there is no need to include Las Ventas, Formaggio SE or the excellent middle eastern store next door.
I have no plans to include any of the Russian stores and won't hit Pensey's....
We live in Coolidge and plan on starting from my place.
I absolutely plan on including:
Formaggio Cambridge (so much better than the SE location)
The New Deal Fish Market
I am debating between Reliable and the Asian market in the Porter Exchange and may roll into the Live Poultry Fresh Kill.
I also was thinking about a liquor stop. I could hit the wine & cheese cask - great small store... roll into Davis for Downtown or go up to the Provisions....
Am I missing anything? And if I do include one of the Armenian shops, Arax?
Also, any help structuring this trip in terms of geography (gas prices are down... but I still don't want to waste time / gas....) would be appreciated.
