Hot Breads in Woburn

Went there last night before a movie. They're open until 9 pm each night.

The place still looks like the pizza/sub shop it must have been, and there's no seating unfortunately, but the food is good.

We split an order of vada pav - 2 small pressed sandwiches on nice rolls with a potato patty with coriander and tamarind chutneys and dabeli (sp?), similar but with chickpeas, sev and maybe some cashews. The dabeli was spicier, but they have hot sauce to squirt on if stuff isn't spicy enough for you.

We also had a pastry that was kind of like a fluffy brioche with cheese and jalapeno slices. And a couple of cookies: a square buttery shortbread with raisins on top and a less buttery round cardamon cookie.

Very nice folks, interesting stuff. Hopefully they'll do well enough to renovate the place and put in a few tables. The sandwiches wouldn't do that well as a take out, as they would lose their fresh pressed hotness, so you're forced to eat over the napkin/condiment counter.

My Indian friend who went with us said that vada pav is relatively new in India, but that Hot Breads version is very much like that he's had there.
