Chowhound "Yum" Steer

A couple of months back, I posted a thread that got some traction on 'bum' CH steers. Well, today's fun is focused on "Yum" steers, i.e., places you were directed to via a fellow hound or were able to direct others too that were especially yummy.

Here's a recent list for Yum Steers given, and taken:

Yums Given

Souper Roll Up, East Camb. - Best place that gets no love on CH board.
New Deal Fish, E. Camb. - Touting this place since 2007. I love Carl Fantasia's fish monger heaven.
Fuloon - A benefit of living on the near north shore.
Uburger - Free Uburger in 2009 that is. I'd recc the U any time, but speecially when they are giving UCheeses away.
Sessa's - Best Italian sandwiches in Eastern MA. Still.

Yums Taken (best of many!)

Craigie on Main - Crispy pig tails! Burger too. Thanks hounds.
O Ya - Still paying the tab, but worth every penny
Tupelo - Southern love
Highland Kitchen - Oh man, thank you!
Angela's Cafe - Muy gracias!
Taranta - Peru? Italy? Who cares!
BBQSmith - Damned if that special smoked pork, kale, sharp cheese creation I ate back in August doesnt rank as my best sammy of '11.

Thanks hounds!

  1. Second the "Yum steer" experience for both Taranta and Highland Kitchen and would add Rincon Limon in Eastie to the list. Great rotisserie chicken.

    2. Thanks for Monica's Mercato

      1. My first experience w/ the Boston Board was when I came up to Boston a few years back to scout out the area for a possible job relocation. Research on Chowhound led me to Paramount in Beacon HIll for breakfast, Euno in the North End and Teatro on the Commons. All great meals.

        Other restaurants/ shops that I frequent due to Chowhound:

        Maria's in the North End

        Russo's in Watertown

        El Pelon

        Food Court @ Super 88

        So Thank You!

        1. This is so much more up my alley than the Bum Steer thread, which just made me sad with all the people yukking each others yums.

          Just a few places I wouldn't have known about but for the Boston hounds:
          Biryani Park
          Esperia Grill
          Serbian festival (not a place but a happening)
          Best Lil Restaurant
          ..... and about a gazillion others....

          Thank you hounds.

            "This is so much more up my alley than the Bum Steer thread, which just made me sad with all the people yukking each others yums"

            If it was the bum steer thread, don't you mean "yukking each others bums"?

          2. -Prezza, especially the egg yolk ravioli (when it's on, I'm in heaven!)

            -Island Creek Oyster Bar. Not sure I would have thought it any more than just another glossy seafood place if I hadn't read so much about it here.

            -Angela's Cafe.

            -the bar at No. 9 Park.

            -burger at Craigie.

              I forgot about the Prezza egg yolk ravioli. Another great yum steer, thanks!
