Ideas for healthy Back Bay/Downtown takeout to take to the Hatch Shell?
Thinking about going to the outdoor concert Wed. night on the Hatch Shell, what would be some good takeout to get?
I really like that WF location - so many more options than other stores.
A bit more of a walk, but I'd go to Mei Sum in Chinatown and get a variety of bahn mi to share. As long as you're not carb-averse, they are pretty healthy. You could add in a shredded cabbage & poached shrimp salad, or fresh rolls from Xinh Xinh across the street. Any of the bun dishes would travel well, too.
I believe Chacarero closes at 6. The Chilean sandwiches are by no means diet food, but they always taste solidly nutritious.
Sultan's Kitchen purveys some very tasty Turkish cuisine, which tends to be reasonably healthy.
Knowfat and b.good each tend to aim more for low-cal/low-fat/low-carb than great taste, but they post all their nutritional info, so at very least you know what you're ingesting.

This may be further away than you want to venture, but the South End Formaggio is a fun place to stock up for a picnic. You can choose your own produce and get a little bread and cheese or deli meat. Also in the South End: Flour Bakery. They'll turn any of their sandwiches into salads, if you're low-carbing or just want more greens.
Really? I've been a little worried that the board of health keeps shutting down DeLuca's every couple of months. That combined with the sight of rotting produce on the stand has made me very leery of getting anything involving meat or cheese at that place and mostly relied on the place for wine, port and sherry only.
