Mulan, Kendall Sq., Cambridge
A competently made taiwanese stir-fry of thin rice noodles with a variety of julienned vetebales and strips of pork. The saucing on the rice noodles is quite pleasant, I'm guessing they use the braising stock from making braised minced pork (a standard at most southern Fujian places and a heavy source oof influence on the Taiwanese) to flavour the noodles.
Good deal with a an "amuse bouche" of salted peanuts and pickles, as well as a standard free but ordinary dessert of chilled sago and melon in a thin coconut milk.

Great crepes, eggy, thin but with a good hint of chewiness. Menu says it's a Russian mother's recipe, so not expecting breton-style buckwheat crepes. Pretty good filling of aparagus, choppped ham and cheese. I'd probably go back to try the beef stroganoff crepe. Ordinary coffee.
Blue Frog Bakery, JP
Crisp, buttery danish with great flakes. A touch of cheese and large sweet glazed strawberries. As good as I last remember. A bakery that's a bit low key but excellent all the same.
La Mamma, Allston
A generous chiliean sandwich/chacerero. Good balance of avocado and beef, quite a bit of tomato wish there was more string beans. Very satisfying, veen if the beef was touch on the tough side. great fresh bread for the sandwich. Good glower on the hot sauce.
