Brains in Boston
We've never seen brains on the menu of any Boston restaurants, nor seen brain for sale at any local butchery. Guessing cow brains, but are open to suggestions.
Help us find a local place that has brains on the menu, or better yet, a purveyor of brains. Love to try cooking ourselves!
We're west/northwest of Boston, but are open to any venue.
And as with so many other unusual food items, I have seen these for sale in Chinatown. Not all the time mind you, but on occasion I do spot them in the refrigerated sections where they keep meat or the frozen food sections (not where the dumplings are kept, but the frozen fish, etc.) I recall they actually come in a little plastic tub, and I think they're usually pig's brain or maybe sheep's brain but there may be other kinds too. I'd stick with the larger stores like cMart, HK Market, etc.
I've had calves brains at KO Prime. That was over 2 years ago and I'm not sure if they still have it on the menu.
I remember Devra First of the Globe mentioning that there's some dish at Menton in the Fort Point area that has bits of brains in it, but I'm not sure which dish. Anyone?
