More Watertown:Fordee's(falafel) and Town Diner

opinionatedchef | Dec 7, 201009:54 PM

In a recent WGBH auction, we purchased a Town Diner card, so we've been trying more things there.
Today My Love's burger was a hit for him- rare and flavorful and a good whole wheat sesame bun. My turkey sandwich was on excellent sourdough and the turkey was real, but it was wicked dry, so i may not order it again. My highlight was the Warm (baby) spinach salad with balsamic reduction, chevre and VERY abundant highest quality bacon. We were sooooo disappointed they were out of the eggplant fries which we love. (I just really have a hard time believing they are frozen, [but they are, per the waitress] because they have full eggplant flavor and are not watery or pithy. As with zucchini fries and calamari, they're great with a lot of fresh lemon juice.)

Since finally acting on an old review of MCSlim's praising the falafel, we've recently been twice to Fordee's, 2 blocks down from Town Diner, on the corner to the right of Massis. We didn't care for the dry chicken kabob wrap, but the falafel and lamb kabob wrap(w/ added tahini sauce) are both top notch. And the owner- what a sweet man. He wasn't there on our first visit last week; maybe he works nights and not the day shift. If I lived in the neighborhood, I'd go there every day just to feel his genuine warmth.
