Strip-T's, Watertown: Good, Wholesome Food, Bizarre Bathroom

hiddenboston | May 1, 200809:23 AM

We got back to Strip-T's in Watertown yesterday evening for dinner. I used to go there all the time for lunch when I worked nearby, but have only gone occasionally for dinner over the past couple of years. I really should go more, as the food impressed once again last night. My portabella mushroom burrito was absolutely out of this world, with black beans, rice, salsa, and various herbs and spices all in a tasty tortilla. Not sure about all the herbs and spices were used, but they really added a lot of flavor to this meal. The chicken soup was also very good (homemade, like everything at Strip-T's) and the thin, stringy onion rings were delicious.

One note about the bathroom--I had forgotten how positively weird it is. To get to it, you have to leave the dining room, head across the front room where the counter is, take a left through a door that says "employees only," go down a flight of stairs into the basement which is full of kitchen equipment and food, take a left midway through the basement and open a door that has a sign saying something like "Use extreme caution," walk about 2 feet, then take a right up three stairs, where the toilet sits like a king's throne. Unfortunately, the low ceiling combined with the three stairs forces us guys into a rather disturbing position in order to use the toilet, since the ceiling at that point is about 4 1/2 feet above the floor. So unless you don't mind having your upper body at a 90-degree angle while going to the bathroom, it's probably best to take a seat. ;-b

Bathroom, aside, I really like Strip-T's. The food is so fresh there, and there are many healthy items on the menu. Plus the prices are very reasonable and there's always plenty of parking out front. And, as I have said before, the steak tips there are outstanding--almost New Bridge-like in quality. I may have to go for them once again the next time I head over there.
