Over the eight years that we have lived in Cambridge, we have developed so many favorite places and in some cases specific dishes. During the last couple of months in town we tried to enjoy as many of these locations and dishes as our stomachs (and waistlines!) could handle. Instead of going into detail, below I list the places we returned to our favorite dish that we visited for in particular (in no specific order).
Davis Square/ North Camrbidge
Burren – curry fries
Gargoyles –love to sit in the bar and enjoy the creative dishes and changing menu
Red Bones – everything pork
Anna’s Taqeria – tacos al pastor
Hana Sushi – our local sushi joint
Qing Dao – typically the delicate pork and leek dumplings but this time case they were sub par with thick skin, not sure what happened
Dave’s Fresh Pasta – everything
Mr. Crepes – Nutella crepe
Sofra – lamb shawarma
Gran Gusto – anything with truffles
Chez Henri – cubano
Tanjore – our favorite Indian restaurant in the Boston area
Spice – crispy basil chicken
Hungry Mother – shrimp and grits (unfortunately they were not on the summer menu)
Helmand – any lamb dish
Lala Rokh – any lamb dish
The Lobster Pool – lobster roll
Athans Bakery – everything
Zen Sushi – volcano roll
Oishii Sushi – just the best sushi in Boston
Hi Rise Bakery – everything
Unfortunately, we ran out of meals and missed a few places that we would have liked to return to. But, these are on top of our list for visits back to Boston!
Upper Crust – the best pizza in Boston!
Cambridge 1 – potato pizza with chili oil
Toro – Maíz Asado con Alioli y Queso Cotija
Publick House – moules frites
We really enjoyed some great gems in our area of Davis Square. We are looking forward to finding our favorites and must-return-to-for… places here in the Triangle.
