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

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