Woojeon and Woojeon II, Burlington

The first place is dedicated to Korean hot soups. The second place is for rice dishes and noodle dishes. The second place has a Super long wait for food to be cooked. If you order multiple dishes they do not cool them together. You’ll see your delicious pad Thai sitting there for 15 minutes till your second dish is made. Meanwhile, many other orders are prepared. So inefficient! But food is good. Just be prepared to wait.

Cabots Ice Cream and Restaurant

Had brunch here for the first time. Small restaurant that’s similar to Friendlys. Prices are very reasonable. Service seems good but we waited so very long to get our order. It didn’t seem like anyone else around had to wait so long. We didn’t order anything special either, just two omelettes and a waffle. Skip the Coke. It didn’t taste right at all. The food was about what I expected. The potatoes that came with the omelettes are cool. They look like potato chips.

Pho Pasteur in Boston Chinatown

It’s been a while since I’ve been here. We decided to go there this Tuesday night and boy what a big mistake! The place is busy but the service and some of the food was beyond horrible. My waiter was super cranky and gave me attitude as he took our order. The fried spring rolls were cold. Not sure how that happens for a dish that is deep fried in hot oil. Fried quail was warm but taste like nothing…no flavor. Dac Biet is their staple noodle dish and it was fine. The fried rice didn’t look appetizing. We didn’t eat it. The coconut shake was good. The beef teriyaki was decent. That was hot. My friend went to this place a day later and also complained of poor service. Oh, it took 30 minutes just to get the check. We asked repeatedly too. These guys just don’t give a damn. They don’t care if you ever go back there. They are grumpy employees. They just rely on their name to draw people in.

Dumpling Daughter in Weston, MA

Finally got to try this place out. The most popular dish seems to be the three day old ramen. This is a noodle soup dish with an egg that’s slightly runny and three slices of braised fatty pork. One order sets you back $12.

We also tried a few other items from their menu. Everything tastes fine. Nothing that would make me force a trip out here to eat. The soup dumplings were juicy and hot. The fried dumplings were lightly fried on one side. The scallion Lo Mein was very buttery tasting…and it cost $3 to add dry chicken to it (skip the meat next time). Just the plain buttery noodles cost $9 already and they charge $3 more for some meat?!?

The prices are a bit high, but that may not be a problem for the locals in Weston. For the rest of us from the city, it’s just one less reason to drive out to Weston. It’s not like there is anything else in Weston for folks to enjoy. Plus we can get similar or better food
In the city for less.

The service here is really good. Decor is nice and trendy. People are very friendly. We even had our soup dumplings (XLB) comped because they missed our fried dumplings order. The owner herself walked over to apologize for the mix up. She and her staff seem to genuinely care about how our dinner and experience was.

So the food was good, not spectacular or special. The location is out of nowhere for the city folks. The prices are a tad high. I’d say it’s worth an initial visit…dunno if I’d go out of my way to go there again though.
