In a state of hibernation. My backlog has long become unsustainable. Will probably tweet more and write less full-length stuff.

Maluken

Keith and Val apparently saw my site and wanted to try Maluken. So Becky and I went with them. I think this is gonna be Maluken's third appearance on the site...

Sichuan Garden

Didn't eat much interesting stuff this weekend. Lauren came to visit; she wants to go to BU. Halloween was alright. Also saw Sean's play over the weekend, and he was hilarious again. The other day for lunch I went to Sichuan Garden in Brookline with Becky, Lauren, Mike, Snezhana, Dave, and Ahrie. One of Mike or Snezhana's friends said they had pretty spicy stuff. It was funny fitting all of us in Dave's car...

spicy fried chicken spicy fried chicken The food was spicy I guess, but not that spicy. Still tasted pretty good though. A beef dish not pictured was well done, and I also liked the beans. They were nice and crisp. Other than that I ate pretty boring stuff this weekend... Subs, macaroni and cheese, sandwiches, and so on. Promise to bring more this week!

Pho Pasteur

Went to Pho Pasteur in Chinatown for dinner... thought it would be good to compare to Sugar Bowl which I went to earlier this week.


grilled pork and imperial roll bun grilled pork and imperial roll bun The pork was better, but the imperial roll wasn't really crispy enough. I gotta try the imperial roll at Sugar Bowl some time. Still, I think it's easier to just go to 88 since it's right next door... the difference wasn't very big (I could, of course, go to the Pho Pasteur which is like 2 blocks away).

Maluken, Super 88 Sugar Bowl, Beijing Cafe, and Uno

Finally got my computer back up and running... I guess I'll put up a few pictures of the past few days. I'll keep the comments brief since this is gonna be pretty long.

spicy beef noodle soup spicy beef noodle soup This is from Sugar Bowl in 88 the other night. Mike says the spicy beef noodle soup was good, and is the best deal in Super 88. It was the first time I tried the bun there, which was pretty good too at $6.25. I liked the pork a lot. Always goes back to the Vietnamese place being inexplicably cheaper than the Japanese place (Ajisen Ramen) by a few dollars, even though the food is better and the portions are larger.


cashew chicken from Beijing Cafe cashew chicken from Beijing Cafe Takeout style Chinese from a couple days ago... at least it fills you up.


fish sandwich from Uno fish sandwich from Uno Went to Uno twice within what, one or two weeks? Someone felt like going and there weren't any other options. As you can see, the piece of fish on this sandwich is pretty damn big. I had to kinda fold it over to fit it. Fish wasn't bad, but coulda been better... A little dry, and not enough meat. The fries were seasoned like curly fries, but not curly. I approve! That's about it for now. I'll be updating regularly again now. :D
