Allston dinner crawl tonight?
The food court is the Super 88--make sure you get banh mi from Pho Viet's! If you're going later, they may be sold out of some of the banh mi, though.
Inside of the Super 88 you should also get cumin lamb skewers at One of the Kind.
I second Garlic 'n' Lemons
Deep Ellum is right next door to Lone Star (same owners) and has some pretty good food.
Jo Jo Taipei
Kaju Tofu House is good Korean. I've never been a huge fan of BonChon.
If you're willing to zigzag from Brighton Ave to Comm Ave, Ittoku for yakitori. Shanghai Gate is also very good Chinese food.
Thanks for your suggestions.
Ended up with
1. Individual Banh mi at Pho Viet
2. Split tofu soup and Bib im bap at Kaju Tofu House
3. Individual tacos at Lone Star
4. Split Chicken Schwarma pita wrap and individual falafel at Garlic and Lemon
Lots of fun, tasty food at every stop, nice walks between stops, a little rainy but not too bad,
To be honest everything was very good.
I especially liked the chicken banh mi at Pho Viet and the fish taco at Lone Star.
My son's favorites were a beef banh mi and the tofu soup at Kaju Tofu House.
I think we caught a break on the timing. The rainy night may have scared away some people. Even though it was Saturday night we found parking on Comm Ave pretty easily and the waits for tables wasn't bad. I think Allstonian is right about the impact of the kids being away.
