Savory Scone Update: Mariposa

Getting back to basics and spending more time in the 02139, I dropped in at Mariposa Bakery and got reacquainted with my old friend, the savory scone. Mariposa offers several scones on some kind of rotation, but I always gravitate to the savory (try their pretzel rolls!) which usually means some combination of cheese and allium,…

Operational Efficiency at Roxy's Grilled Cheese

Two weeks later, I kept my Cheese Weasel Day date with Roxy's Grilled Cheese truck. You know how I like a simple menu: they offered five sandwiches, two add-ons and a single side.

The Multitude of Mites on Mimolette

I had the strangest dream this weekend: I dreamed that people were hoarding precious balls of bright orange cheese. When I woke up this was on the radio: The FDA is cracking down on Mimolette, a wonderful cheddaresque French cheese. Mais pourquoi? Cheese Mites, that's quoi. All you wusses better hold on to your hand sanitizer,…

Did you know that buttery pastries can help reduce the risk of macular degeneration?  You probably didn't know that because it's probably not true, but that didn't stop me from picking up a savory scone at 3 Little Figs on Somerville's Highland Avenue on the way to see my eye doctor.  Hey, it's not as…

The Full Monty inside the Christo sandwich

Sometimes, a package is wrapped so beautifully, you don't want to open it.  When the package contains food, I can get over that feeling pretty fast. Here's something you may not know: everybody's favorite West End French-themed Korean deli with a kick-ass salad bar, Bonne Chance,  serves the best-wrapped breakfast sandwiches you'll ever see, even…

Arise, you prisoners of cheese depirvation

What is the alternative to the alternative?  Is it the same old thing?  Well, after making such a fuss last week about a breakfast sandwich from the crepe truck, my bluff was called on Friday by the presence of the Grilled Cheese Nation truck.  If they can't make a knock your socks off cheese sandwich,…

Viva l'alternative!

You know that guy who orders the fish at a steak place, or the burger at a pizza place?  I am not that guy.  I like the odd things on the menu just fine, but I like to go for the core competencies most of the time.  Checking out the falafel truck?  I get the…
