Missouri Chowhound visits Belmont/Waltham

I moved away from Belmont in 1991, and just went back for a visit last weekend.

I was blown away by a wonderful lunch at Vickie Lee's. Beet salad, stuffed grapeleaves, a cookie for dessert. I sure wish such a wonderful place existed 17 years ago.

And then I went to dinner in Waltham, where I used to work. In 1991, you could get a pizza or a sub in Waltham and that was about it. In 2008, I went to Ponzu, with friends, and Ponzu's Asian tapas got a big thumbs up from all of us. I sure wish such a wonderful place existed 17 years ago.

  1. Sounds like a fun visit, thanks for reporting back!

    1. I have harped on Ponzu's fantastic sashimi several times on this board, and will do so now again because I went there for lunch last week and was blown away for maybe the 4th straight time. The $12.95 sashimi lunch special is one of the best deals around, and the quality is superb.
