Quincy favorites?

Lived in Quicy for about a year now and still haven't found that "favorite" place where you can go often and not get sick or broke eating. Suggestions?

  1. any preference for your favorite type of food?

    there are certainly plenty of inexpensive asian restaurants in quincy: you can get pho at pho yuen dong or pho hoa for about $8. quincy dynasty has good chinese food. and, of course, little q for hot pot.

    kagawa in quincy center has consistently great sushi. in addition, the service is always good and their prices reasonable.

    gennaro's has very good, inexpensive italian. fat cat is a pricier but their food is solid and you can usually get a well-made drink (which can be frustratingly difficult in quincy).

    if you venture over to dorchester, check out the common ground or ashmont grill.

      I agree about Quincy Dynasty. Is Kagawa still open? Looked recently I didn't spot it.

      A place with very nice food- but few seats and early hours - is next to the Quincy Center T, on the path from Hancock, I think called Good'n Fresh (not to be confused w/ another place around the corner right on Hancock, I think called Eatin' Healthy, which is ok but didn't draw me back).

        I agree about Quincy Dynasty. Try the green mussels, the duck in plum sauce...Is Kagawa still open? Looked recently I didn't spot it.

        1. re: DeQ

          I believe you are thinking of Get Fresh Rotisserie and Grill. Julie, the owner, used to be the chef at Fava in Needham. She is very nice and a fabulous cook.

      2. Lately I've been going to Fuji on Hancock street. Good sushi, reasonable prices, good service. I've been going to the 1546 Fuji on Hancock, at least I think it's 1546, or 15 something, essentially downtown near Albas. For American type cuisine Bay Point Inn is pretty good. Nothing fancy, but the food is good and the price reasonable. Portions are also generous.

        1. What do you like to eat? That's my first question. However, I'll give you some favorites of mine:

          Gennaro's--excellent Italian-American with no pretensions of anything fancy. Huge portions, fair prices, good service. They have great pizza/calzones, if you like that.

          Fat Cat--just went there again last night for dinner. Excellent food, reasonable prices. One of the best hamburgers I've had in a long time, and one of the only places around here that will serve it to me the way I like it...cold and red inside.

          Siam House--it's a bit threadbare inside, but the food is excellent. The Pad Thai, Drunken Noodles, the Seasame Chicken are all my favorites.

          Grumpy Whites-A local "hole in the wall" with cheap prices and good basic comfort food (meatloaf, lasagna, burgers, fish and chips, mac and cheese).

          Coop's Bar and Grill--Slightly upscale pub food, excellent quality and a very pleasant atmosphere.

          Kagawa-Very good Japanese. Yes, it's still open.

          Punjab Cafe--Good Indian, reasonable prices

          Also, this has been discussed before. I don't think the thread is that old, so most of the places are still in business. Just do a search on "Quincy" on the board here.

          1. Some of my favorites (Quincy Dynasty, Fat Cat) have already been mentioned. Fat Cat in particular is good for sandwiches - the pulled pork with fries is $7 or $8, and I can take half the sandwich home. I'll add Little Duck Thai just outside of Quincy Center on Granite Street and Schoolhouse Pizza at the corner of Hancock and School Street.

            If you're in northwest Quincy, A Lighter Fare in East Milton Square serves a nice breakfast and lunch.
