Another Reason To Live [Jan. 9th, 2008|12:52 am]
Kelly J. Cooper

Another Reason To Live:
    Cafe Polonia's Borscht (beet soup). Damn, that's fine stuff.
Previously acknowledged reasons to live (in no particular order):
  • Dark chocolate hot cocoa from Burdick's
  • Any sushi prepared by Hiro
  • Cecilia's fried fish ball soup
  • The Japonaise Bakery's an pan, potato croquette sammich, and (most important) their azuki bean cream bun
  • My BF's chocolate chip banana muffins
  • Seeded ficelle loaves from the Hi-Rise Bread Company
  • The "Dissertation" sammich from the Oxford Spa (and their punkin chocolate chip cookies)
  • Plum juice from Nantucket Nectars
  • Bi Bim Bop (with chicken, no onions) from Seoul Food
  • Fried Peking Ravioli and Suan La Chow Show from Mary Chung's
  • Cheese from Formaggio's Kitchen (most any cheese, but especially aged gouda with little crunchy crystals)
  • Kaya from The Raffles Hotel in Singapore
  • Lindeman's Framboise Lambic
  • Toasted rice green tea
  • Romkey's dates filled with goat cheese and wrapped in bacon (also, just in general, dates stuffed with two Spanish almonds and then consumed)
  • Tapas in Spain, especially that thick tomato soup (which isn't gazpacho, but I can't remember its name), often garnished with chunks of fried bacon and bits of boiled egg
  • Well-prepared nabeyaki udon (which I don't currently have a good source for...)
  • Fresh Vietnamese spring rolls and pork sammiches, AKA banh mi (another thing for which I do not have a good source)
  • Hot spiced cider
  • Pork with rice cake from Breshnev's
  • Gin, tonic, and a dash of fresh lime, stirred with Mason's finger
  • The now-defunct Rusty Mudslide from Diesel Cafe (*sigh*)
  • Fresh, warm chocolate chip cookies
  • Baked pork buns (sans onions) or steamed pork buns (need a good source!)
  • The BF's apples and sausages with parmesan orzo

There's been a bahn mi explosion in Chinatown recently, with at least three different places I know of and probably a few more I don't. Still extremely cheap, too. Unfortunately, they all close annoyingly early, usually before 7pm, so I have to sprint to get anything if I want to eat it during class.

Pho Viet, in the Super 88 food court, does good banh mi. They also do fresh spring rolls. Allston may be too far out of your way, but at least they're open late (by local standards).
