Who has the best feet in the Boston area?

  • 9

I've been on a little foot fetish at home experimenting with pig and lamb feet, and have had some pretty tasty pigs feet plates at a couple place Lawrence and in Lynn recently at La Fe Restaurant and D'Leomar.

Any recommendations in the Greater Boston area for Cow, Lamb, or Pig feet, please let me know. You can even include Chicken feet if you have any favorites places for.

  1. Mulan in Cambridge does a great version of the pig


    Wings in CTown was also great but not sure if they still offer it after their menu change a few years ago.

    1. The goat foot (paya) at Darbur in Brighton is spicy and excellent!

        Had the paya last week at Darbur. Very good, and a nice spicy kick to it. Great call as was La Fe Rest. that you turned me onto from your post a while back.

        Hoping to try 9lives suggestion later this week at Mulan.

            Thanks for your list. This will keep me busy this winter.

              I second the recommendation for chicken feet at Winsor. Truly awesome.

            2. The callos at Estragon is a very nice, spicy stew of tripe, morcilla, chorizo and trotter.

              Bissonnette occasionally incorporates trotter into dishes at Toro and Coppa, but I haven't seen it on the current menus. Ditto Journeyman.

              The Salty Pig styles itself as a "snout to trotter" restaurant, and offered a pig trotter ragout on its opening menu, but it's already gone.

              I can imagine Bondir doing something with trotter -- Jason Bond offered a stuffed trotter dish back in the day at Beacon Hill Bistro -- but I haven't seen it there yet.

              I had a stuffed trotter special at Pigalle about a year ago, but it was a massive disappointment, just an all-around failure of a dish.
