8/16/10; EGGPLANT, How Do I Love Thee?Let Me Count the Ways

So, I will start with some of my favs:

Toro- Escalivadas( Eggplant Salad) the one dish that keeps me going back
Eastern Lamejun- Baby Eggplants Stuffed with Rice and Pine Nuts
Mary Chung- Deep fried Eggplant Sandwiches filled with Pork
Town Diner- Deep fried Eggplant spears(essential to have with lemon wedges)
Sevan Bakery- Eggplant and Mushroom Salad( w/ tomato and garlic base)
that Pizza restaurant in No. Cambr. brick building - Eggplant Parmesan
La Fe (Lynn)- Dominican stewed Baranjena(Eggplant) with Pork (alternates daily with fab. okra[molandrone])

As I'm compiling this, I am realizing that I have not seen eggplant dishes in Mexican cuisine.hmmmm...
I am anxious to learn of your favs!

    1. re: maillard

      Via Matta - Crunchy Eggplant app... so crunchy on the outside, so creamy on the inside.

    2. Spicy eggplant and pork at Shangri-La, possibly the best eggplant dish I have ever had.

      149 Belmont St, Belmont, MA 02478

      1. Chili Duck on Boylston across from the Pru - Spicy eggplant with chopped chicken (laab style)

        And, a dream of a stuffed eggplant dish that Ana Sortun made in a cooking class at BU a few years ago. If this ever shows up on one of her menus. I'm there.


        1. eggplant at Helmand...deliciously done with yogurt sauce to balance it out.

          1. Not exactly the most stellar thing ever, but the egg/eggplant sandwich from the clover food truck deserves an honorable mention.

            The best aubergine dish I've ever had: my wife's eggplant/tomato thingamijig...pure heaven.
