Lucky locavore lunch on the Greenway

I'd stayed up late making a week's worth of lunch boxes, each one a work of nutritious bento art, and naturally I left all of them in the fridge at home. How serendipitous, I thought, the Boston Public Market on the Greenway is right next door, I'll just get lunch there! As it turns out, a…

Got to go see the Gozi

I got one of those mysterious messages from Lyons Communications (the people that brought you news of the giant Concord cheese wheel) that more or less said, ”you've got to see the gozi” will who could resist such a come-on?  I set out last week with Sprout Lender and cookbook entrepreneur J for a preview at Piperi Mediterranean…

April (Food) Truck (Wrap) Up

I began April with a simple mission: eat at every food truck at Government Center.   I figured it would take about two and a half weeks, but now, 30 days into April, it appears that I will fall short of the mark, mainly because two of the scheduled trucks never showed up. Here's a…

One of the three most important meals of the day

When the weather gets into the 90s I try to stay inside during daylight hours, as much for the shade as the humidity-cutting air conditioning.  So it's important to have lunch material on hand to avoid having to go out.  What I thought was scraping the bottom of the barrel today turned out to be…

Lunch factory

Every now and again I get inspired, usually while avoiding some other work, to cook a lot of food.  Sometimes a week's worth of lunch at a go.  After violating one of the cardinal rules of grocery shopping - don't go while hungry - I came home and whipped up a week of lunch.  There's…

Davis Square cheese sandwich quest: The Ploughman's Lunch

The cheese sandwich quest continues.  Following up on a tip from Brian, I ordered up the Ploughman's Lunch at The Burren here in Davis.  It came with excellent chips (fries) but the cheese was less than it might have been.  Apologies for the sub-par cameraphone shot, I was caught out without my Ricoh. The menu…

The three chickens you meet in Tibet

I'm a big fan of lunch.  It's one of my favorite three meals of the day.  Yesterday I went with tangyslice and our CTO to a new to us place, Martsa on Elm for a Tibetan buffet.  We weren't sure what to expect but we were happy with what we got. I'm not sure how…

A guide to Davis Square chuggers

No, I don't mean the trouble all those college kids are getting into, I mean Charity Muggers, or "chuggers" as the limeys call them.  I was at lunch with @tangyslice in Davis square today and observed him live-blogging the local charity panhandlers.  Being who I am, I couldn't help but geolocate Tangy's observed data. Perhaps…

Sushi and ice cream

Lunch is one of my three favorite meals of the day. Taking a break from the usual grind of burritopalooza or wolf-at-your-desk, I sought out that Davis Square oasis of calm, Snappy Sushi. While some people are off in Japan nom-nomming their way across the island, I still find Snappy to be above average in…

A tale of two Davis square cheese sandwiches

I had just one thing on my mind heading out to lunch yesterday: cheese. Pizza? No. Cheeseburger? No. Cheese fries? Ugh. Can you just have a slab or slice or chunk of cheese for lunch? Not that I haven't done so before, but it's somehow just not done during a lunch break from work. So…

Tempest in a Tiffin

[caption id="" align="alignright" width="300" caption="Photo credit: me."][/caption] You know how sometimes it seems you can't do anything without causing some kind of fuss? First it was the Lake Champlain Chocolate Kerfuffle, and now this: Last week I went to lunch with A at a Diva, an Indian restaurant near my office and was pleasantly surprised…
