Small bites

Joanie | Jun 9, 2003 07:36 AM

Got a pizza to go from Pig's in Brigham Circle and it was delish. Remembered they had duck so called up for that, not realizing it's the most expensive on the menu ($12.95 for a good sized small). It's duck leg, potato and roasted red onion w/ fontina cheese. I'm a huge white pizza fan and this was great. Potato seemed like it had a little spiciness but I couldn't figure it out. Duck tasted salty, almost like prosciutto. Whatever, it was good and better than the slice I had of bbq chicken there a while ago which may have sat around too long. Better than the slice at the Coolidge Corner Upper Crust which I just tried on Tues. It was fine, spinach, garlic and mushroom I think. Maybe it's just cuz I prefer white so much that if I had one from UC, I'd like it as much.

Was in Roslindale Village where I saw a big "doughnut" sign in the window of Diane's Bakery and tried another in my quest for the perfect donut. This was a plain w/ chocolate frosting which I like better than the frosted donuts on raised style at DD and KK. Could only have a couple bites of its good crunchiness cuz I was getting breakfast shortly at the Air Field Cafe in Stow, MA which I'd heard about a lot. Including Phantom Gourmet loving the place. It's about 5 or so miles off Rt. 2 in the middle of nowhere, except the little airfield with tiny planes. Sat by the window but no planes took off while we were there. Pricier than I thought it would be, a cheese omelette was $5.95 before anything else got added. A single plain pancake cost $3.95?! I had a bacon & cheese omelette which was fine altho the home fries weren't as good as the waitress said. My friend had the basic 2 eggs and sausage for the same price I think. Their peasant white and grain breads were really great tho and the waitress was fun. Glad I tried it but no need to go out of the way for it.
