Braintree/Canton Visit

I will have a quick trip with stops in Braintree and Canton. Wide open to suggestions particularly for those places that "you have to try in the area". All cuisines and price points are welcome. Thanks!

  1. El Sarape in Weymouth Landing (actually part of East Braintree) has some of the best Mexican food I've tried in the Boston area.

    Canton doesn't have a whole lot of places, but next door in Sharon is Coriander, which is supposed to be very good.

      I have to agree that Canton doesn't have much to offer, but Coriander in Sharon is very good with fair prices

        I agree about El Serape. If you've got a hankering for bar pizza and beer (and nothing else!), check out the Lynnwood in Randolph - great stuff!

      2. Cobbs Corner, Stoughton/Canton line, very good Chinese at Chinatown Restaurant.

        1. Just a hop, skip and 5 mile jump from Canton is Lewis' Bar and Grill in downtown Norwood. While they have a restaurant and full menu, you'll simply want to pop in to the bar side and enjoy a Lewis burger (garnished with your traditional lettuce, tomato and onion as well as your not so traditional dollop of egg salad). Order an OVC (orange, vodka and collins) to accompany the burger, and then sit back and vintage murals!

          1. Mai Place in Canton for sushi. Freshness, service, and price all good.

              I would second Mai Place for great sushi, and good Chinese. The Globe did a review a while back and gave them a very favorable review as well.

              Bon Caldo is reasonable Italian but is in Norwood. Also check out Siam Lotus in Norwood for great Thai. Both of these restaurants are on Route 1, southbound side.
