DH and I are (sadly) moving away from Watertown to Braintree. I’m thrilled with being closed to Chinese grocery stores and restaurants in Quincy, but really sad to leave excellent stores like Russo’s and Sakanaya behind. Was wondering if anybody has any recommendations for the Braintree/Quincy/South Shore area nearby, to ease our pain of separation? Any restaurants recommendations will be helpful too!
The things I’m looking for:
- Middle Eastern grocery: mainly for the pita bread
- Bakery: we normally get the crusty white loaf or the brioche from Russo’s for sandwiches
- Cheese and deli: speck and prosciutto cotto at Russo’s - we will miss you!
- Sushi grade fish: we don’t make sushi that often, but it’ll certainly be a nice option
Also just a question for folks in the area; are there any good coffee shops around? A search on Yelp returned nothing. I love milk tea shops with a deep and unrelenting passion but it boggles the mind that there’s not a decent latte around there.
