Ate at the Acapulco on Centre St. in JP by So. Hunt. for the first time in many years. It was very pleasant, nice room and service. They had quite a choice of chicken, fish and meat dishes that were more adventurous ($10-15) but I went with a tex mex combo of a meat enchilada and chimichanga (sp?) w/ black beans and rice for $8.25. The chips weren't too exciting but the meal hit the spot (keeping in mind that I'm not much of a Mexican expert).
Down the street, hit Sorella's for some pistachio French toast ($4.99). The nuts were nice and embedded in the thick cut slices. Always such a hard choice as to which crazy combination of pancake, french toast or omelette to get there. A friend had a huge cheeseburger w/ grilled onions and spicy fries that looked good.
Had Fri. off so I figured this was the time to finally go to Sound Bites in Ball Sq. Somerville. Got the last table at 10:30 and went with more French toast, stuffed with cream cheese and apricot jam ($6.99). Tasted good and more important, no one screamed at anyone to get out after they finished their meal. But I made sure not to hang around in any case.
