I’ve been kind of MIA here the last couple of weeks, due to impending life changes–I’m finally moving back to Boston full time. (I haven’t even gotten to putting up my thoughts on Sei Bar Wakefield & Man-o-salwa Kabob & Grill because I’ve been packing up my upstate NY crap!).
So here’s the thing: my job up here ends today, and the new gig I have doesn’t start until Jan 2. So I’m taking a month off…my main plan is just to kick around town, do some museum/library/film stuff and eat lots of lunches out. Will probably go to Chinatown a couple times, I want to go to Allston at least once and since I still have wheels I might take a road trip to somewhere nearby that I haven’t been (like Methuen/Lawrence or some such). I’ll also be living near Union Sq in Somerville.
The one place I’d most like to try is the Sapporo style ramen place in Brookline (Ganko Ittetsu) and I’ll probably scope out Ruckus Noodles on one of my downtown trips. Might try to add some content to the roast beef sandwich thread. But otherwise I’m just casting around for ideas.
Mostly I’ll probably aim for cheap eats/midrange pricewise since I’m not bringing in cash this month, but I’m not destitute at all and might entertain a Xmas present to myself once or twice at something more upscale. So I’m up for most any kind of suggestions. So where would you go if you had some free time to explore the local scene? I’ll happily report back on anything I manage to get to like I did on the Waltham recs. Thanks for any help!
