Braised pork with preserved vegetables and ginger scallion Salmon

This is a home cooked meal. You can’t ask for a better combination than this. My father in law made the braised pork with preserved vegetables and my wife prepared the ginger scallion salmon. The pork just melts in your mouth like butter. The salmon just tastes special. Everything is so tasty!!

Fried Chicken from State Park, Cambridge MA

The place is known for their fried chicken. You walk in and see the bar but there are actually plenty of tables inside and out. We were there for lunch on a weekday and it didn’t seem too busy. Two Asian girls run the place and they are friendly and helpful.

On to the chicken…the regular is tobasco honey and there is the spicier Nashville hot fried chicken. I had the tobasco honey and it was delicious. The flavor was not marinated into the chicken meat but the skin is smothered with this sweet flavor. I didn’t taste any tobasco flavor at all…and that’s okay cause it would feel like I’m eating buffalo wings.

The chicken itself is very juicy inside and seemed to have been cooked just right. An order comes with a thigh, drum stick, and breast. They are small pieces so don’t worry about getting too full. The dish comes with some perfectly cooked collard greens on the side. They are not too soft or too raw tasting. I also ordered a coke but it tasted kind of flat.

If you haven’t tried this place and their fried chicken you should do it at least once. It costs like $16-$18 a plate though.
