S&S Deli in Cambridge MA

This place is pretty good. I’ve seen many delicious dishes come from this place. For one, the S&S pizza. This is what I got today for lunch :

The French toast is amazing . It’s thick and eggy and soft. Has a sprinkle of powdered sugar on top. The breakfast sausage was good too. It also came with a side of fresh fruit.

Go check them out!

Chilipa at Super 88

This is the new place that opened up at the corner near the front entrance. The idea is you get to pick your ingredients from their raw buffet and they’ll cook it for you.

You start by choosing your meats at $8.88 per pound, then either a small or large basket of veggies for a fixed price. I think its around $5.50 and $7.50 for small baskets and large baskets, respectively. All of the ingredients are things you’d consider for a traditional Asian hot pot… Except this is a stir fry.

The place is busy and service is friendly. The lady up front even speaks decent English… Important in describing how this place works to us.

The only question they had was how spicy you want it. I guess everyone’s meal tastes the same. The only problem I have with this place is unfortunately the flavor. There is something in the ingredient list that leaves a weird after taste in my mouth. It was strong enough to make me not want to go back. I haven’t figured out how to describe the taste yet or determine what it is. I just don’t like it.. Could be just me.

Anyways we didn’t go crazy and our dish with 2 sides of rice clocked in under $20. This could easily feed 3 or 4 people.

Sesame mochi

These are unique snacks you can find at any fine Asian grocery store. It’s a soft munchkin like pastry snack filled with sesame paste inside. The shell is doughy and soft… Kinda chewy. It’s all wrapped with sesame seed goodness!

I like’em and think it’s worth the few bucks to get 6 or 8 per box. Check out the pictures:

Spicy Korean soup – Woojeon Hmart, Burlington, MA

Korean soup… Very flavorful and spicy. It’s all about the super hot brothy soup with various meats, mixed with rice. It is very satisfying and you’ll enjoy every last drop of the soup. I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves.

And here is a shot showing how it is served (rice, soup, kimchi, bean sprouts):

Food at Woojeon is very good and the prices are well worth it. These dishes range from $9-$14. This restaurant is located inside Hmart where it can be tough to find a table if you go with a group larger than 4. Parking is plentiful, the grocery store has some of the freshest meats and veggies you’ll ever find and the location is good. There is also a new Hmart opened in Central Square in Cambridge.
