East Somerville Foodie Crawl - Reports?

  • 2

Anyone else attend the East Broadway Foodie Crawl last night in Somerville?

For me, the highlights were the following:

Blessing Caribbean Restaurant: Rice (dark colored, made with mushrooms) and Turkey Stew. Both had nice flavor, and made me think I should definitely try this place again sometime. It was my first time ever inside.

Fasika Ethiopian: I liked the lentils, which had a nice amount of spice. They were definitely on the sweet side, but very flavorful.

Taqueria Montecristo: Fried plantains were surprisingly good, especially given the large quantity they were serving.

I didn't get to try it, but I also heard good things about the food at Maya Sol - something about a soup containing mint?

Curious to hear what other people liked, and what people thought of the event in general!

  1. Was I really the only hound at this event!?

    1. SWe loved the food crawl. Agree on Fasika and will return with our veggie daughter, and the Monti Cristo plantains were fabulous. Other favorites: Casey's steaktips and suprisingly good pizza, Taco Loco veggie quesadilla, Los Paisanos chicken taquito, Gauchao pork sausage and the fried casaba.
