Three guys, strangers, standing on a corner on Dot. Ave. One looks like Leon Russell - all gray hair and classy -he's a Greek. The second guy is small, wiry Asian - he's Vietnamese. The third is a big bald guy - Swedish blood. That's me -the last one. I ask - "Who has the best Greek food around Boston?" The Greek guy tells me - a place just off Coolidge Corner on Harvard - turns out to have to be Niko's at 187 Harvard. Anybody know this place and how the food is?
The same question about the best Vietnamese -the Asian dude says "The Pho Pasteur on Brighton Ave. in Allston." He also says that my pick as the best Vietnamese on Dorchester Ave. is where we are standing outside of - the Pho Hoa.
They don't ask me for Swedish places - I'd have to tell them "NYC" --- and Stockholm:- )
