Lowell food scene - WCVB Chronicle Tues/11/19/13

Channel 5 is checking in on the current developments in Lowell, which will include food and drink.

Hi, Mods: Could you please leave this where it is? Chronicle is locally produced and aired, only shown on Boston TV.

  1. Speaking of Lowell...I was at Hong Cuc Sandwich Shop on Dutton Street on Saturday to pick up a BBQ beef bahn mi and some other goodies.
    I noticed that the assortment of prepared items and desserts on Saturdays has really expanded, or maybe I just got there early enough to see it all before it was sold.

      Jealous now! When I go to Hong Cuc it's always late afternoon, so it's a crap-shoot if they'll have run out of banh mi fixings.

    2. I saw that but not so current since it originally aired in 1999 according to the website!
      Wonder if that is correct?? I know Simply Khmer is going to be on it, not sure they were even around in 99?!?

        I just watched it and obviously the info posted on the website is wrong. They mention how simply khmer was on food network so definitely not that old.

      2. During my brief stint in Boston a couple of years ago, I decided to take a day trip to Lowell. The purpose - viewing the Cambodian consulate, having larb - was successful, though unfortunately my camera broke along the way.

        There was a small but decent walk by the downtown mills too, seems part of the area was renovated.
