I'm a New York writer who's in Worcester for two weeks of research, and I'm am eager to check out the hounding scene here. Anybody have great recommendations for cheap eats, little gems, the best of the local diners, and must-try spots (other than fancy dining -- as I said, I'm a writer and living on a writer's budget....)? Fortunately, I love Vietnamese and Middle Eastern (apparently Worcester's two specialties) and most other ethnic cuisines.
I've already been to Pho Dakao (really good pho, but a little pricey, I thought) and tonite I had two dogs with the works at George's Coney Island (yum... I could've gone for a third). I plan to check out One Love soon, too.
I heard there's a bahn mi place nearby -- anyone know where? And all other recommendations welcome. I have a car and can get out to some of the nearby towns as well if there's something I've gotta try while I'm here.
