The Farm Grill and Rotisserie

What a let down! Given the other reviews for this place, maybe it was just my experience that sucked. This place is busy so it must be good or over hyped.

I ordered my food. I sat and waited. Then I waited some more. They were calling people’s numbers and were busy so I figured they were just backed up. I waited some more. I finally go check on the counter and there was what looked like our meal just sitting there. I asked and surely it was. I couldn’t have missed them calling my number as I sat right next to the counter. Also, couldn’t help but notice a young man who appeared to be the owner greeting some friends. Someone else came out to greet them too. Why weren’t they preparing food instead? It’s so busy. Whatever at this point.

The food was the big let down. The half chicken was so dry and shriveled up. It’s like chicken leftover for 2 days and then microwaved. I ordered kabobs and the outside is dry as hell and inside was nice and chewy…then I realized its raw inside. Pink and squishy. Ugh! Not more than 10 minutes after I left this joint did my stomach feel like the scenes from the movie Twister.

Again it must’ve been just me since most people love this place (based on Yelp reviews). But one bad experience like this was enough to swear away from ever returning here. On a good note, plenty of off street parking in the back.

Shaanxi Gourmet

Maybe hand pulled noodle joints are just not my thing. I didn’t enjoy my experience here at all. I’m not talking about just the food. We were seated right in front of the door and my kids were freezing cold. The servers were not tentative to our needs at all. It was a little busy and they were not able to handle it at all. Even the chefs had to come out in jackets to help serve food.

Food was not good for my tastes. The pork belly was sliced extremely thin (think cold cuts thin) and the preserved veggies were damn salty! I love salty foods to begin with and even I thought they were salty as heck. Fried dumplings were cute…very small portion.

I won’t be back. They are lucky to be on route 9 where their place is highly visible and suckers like me will go in at least once.

Godavari Buffet in Woburn MA

South Indian buffet. Love it. Very fresh, tasty and clean. They had duck curry which is not something I usually see at Indian places. Plenty of briyanis and vegetarian options. The red wings are very good! You’ll pay just $15 per person. Worth it for the quality of food offered here.

If you’re finding this place with GPS just note the place faces the Main Street, across from dunkin donuts. Just look for the crowd of Indians waiting to get a table.

Oppa’s Kitchen and Bar

This place is right next to Malden Center on Pleasant street. Plenty of street parking on the weekends. Portions were small, prices were a tad high. Flavor is hit or miss. The spicy pork belly was very good and melts in your mouth. The Galbi is ok..not the best or worst but it was $20. The seafood jigae wasn’t very flavorful. I think Woojeon in Hmart is much better and almost half the price. The chewy rice cake thing with cheese came out better than expected. Spicy chicken gizzards was something unique.

For $250 and 9 of us we only had 4 very small side dishes. This is not normal for eating Korean!! I would’ve taken pictures of the side dishes but you wold the notice them cause it’s so small and insignificant. They didn’t look good either so whatever.
