So much good food in Waltham these days.
And for me a visit to Waltham is never complete without a visit to Waltham India Market for provisions, mangos, fruit and veg. I don't buy rice there though. Don't forget Kebab and Tandoor AND the food court in the basement.
New fancy looking resto called Redbird opening on Moody:
Recently had my fave Pork Gordita and Tamal at Antojito's, killer delicious as usual.
Also hit Moody's for the Pastrami sandwich yesterday. Comments:
The zingy mustardy rich dressing they use overwhelms the meat. The griddling of the pastrami also takes some of the deliciousness out of the pastrami. The first time I had it, it was plain and right out of the smoker. Pastrami that good looses some of it's pastrami essence when griddled. I'd rather have it just room temp with a smidge of sharp mustard, or maybe very lightly steamed in beer (my preferred approach). A truly delicious sandwich, but somehow a tad adrift from the purity of pastrami. Also for $12 they ought to throw in a pickle.
Good empanadas at multiple locations, great sandwiches at Dominics, Best in Boston Wines at Gordon's (just avoid the senior wine guy there, a bit of a snob), half decent vietnamese, good Columbian (reported on this board, but not sampled by me) multiple latino groceries, Haitian groceries, and some very adventurous 5&10 type places.
Really reminds me of Somerville, er Paris in the 90s. ;-)
