The Hot Spot, Allston MA


#1

was in Allston briefly on Sunday, so I went to this place that had garnered some good recs. with Noodle Month in mind, I ordered the kitchen sink noodle–an offal filled bowl of tripe, kidney, intestine, pig blood, fish ball, dumpling & etc. For a post snow bowl of richness, it fit the bill. soup was a little thin but subtly spiced with star anise and scallion. Lots of meaty goodness for the ten dollar tag.

The people here are really nice and the restaurant is well decorated and comfortable. Lots of other Cantonese/Hong Kong things in the menu for good value.

the braised beef brisket (with tripe and tendon) is good too
