from a humungous burger at Tim's which I hadn't been to since returning from Australia with a burger craving 8 years ago (cuz no one makes burgers as well as the US of A). I nipped this next trip's craving in the bud (fish and more fish in Venice) with a burger w/ American cheese and a side of onion rings. The burger was slightly below the medium I ordered it but pretty tasty and huge to bite into with the tomato and onion on top. I really don't understand how people deal with the size of O'Sullivan's burgers. Onion rings unfortunately weren't nice flaky homemade ones but decent frozen ones. It was me and the guys at the bar, altho one other female was in the back room. $7 for a lot of food but I still think Miracle of Science has the best burger in Boston.
Was sick one day last week but trekked out in the wind to finally try a lunch box special at JP Seafood. Miso soup made me feel healthier, probably should have ordered something besides shrimp and vegetable tempura for the main. Shrimp were done very nicely, vegetables tended to get soggy. Plus there were two small pieces of fried whitefish, two croquette type things, some salad, 3 maki and rice, half of which I took home, a lot of food for $8 or 9. Very quiet at 2PM on a Wed.
Went across the street to Sweet Finnish and the "Village Apple Crisp" wasn't bad. People have complained about their things being too dry but I find many of the German and Scandanavian cakes I've had tend to be drier and less sweet than what I'm used to. I was worried this was gonna be dry as a bone, esp. with no whipped cream offered, but I liked it and it was only $1.75. That space really could be much more inviting, those stiff blonde wood chairs just aren't so comfy, but I hope they make a go of it. I'd still take Clearflour any day of the week tho.
