Boston Restaurants Offering Take-Out & more during Coronavirus Crisis

The past month has been very different and we are all going through something that none of us have ever experienced before. Schools closing, working from home and staying in all the time has become the norm. I am appreciative as all we are being asked to do is stay home which is nothing in comparison to all the hard work the nurses, doctors and everyone out there are doing. The restaurant industry and other small businesses are facing very challenging times and now is a good time to support our local restaurants and businesses.

Good Eats Boston: Balani

Good Eats Boston features a number of restaurants in and around Boston. Waltham, specifically the Moody Street area, also has a varied collection of restaurants serving delicious foods. With so many restaurants on one street there is literally all the cuisines you could think of including Tapas, Sushi, Mexican, Thai and good old American fare. If you crave it, its probably on Moody street. Recently I decided to venture to the popular street to sample the delicious dishes served up by Balani restaurant. 

The Balani Burger

The moment you enter Balani, you are welcomed by a very friendly host and the eclectic decor immediately catches the eye. With unique artwork, warm tones and a comfy lounge area Balani certainly has character and is very inviting. 

I ordered the stir fried Chinese broccoli succotash which includes baby corn, edamame, shiitake with a creamy curry sauce. My husband, who loves seafood, ordered the grilled octopus with chopped salad, ginger soy dressing and crispy fava beans. We both enjoyed our appetizers, however, If we knew the portions were so large, we probably would have shared an appetizer. 

Since I was on my cheat day I knew I had to go all out for the main course. I ordered the highly rated Balani Burger made with smashed prime chuck, crispy pork belly, cheddar, house dill pickles, awesome sauce, potato roll and fries. To say the burger is good is an understatement; it’s awesome! My husband ordered the roasted Chinese eggplant with short rib and he loved it. His dish was made with a sweet and spicy soy glaze, jasmine rice, chopped salad, ginger vinaigrette and very tender short rib. The plate was cleared when he was done with it. 

Balani Waltham Grilled Octopus

Balani Waltham ROASTED CHINESE EGGPLANT with Short RibYou would think after all that food we couldn’t possible eat anything else but there’s always room for dessert. We ordered the date cake, which was easily the best dessert I have had in a long time. I told my husband I would drive back to Waltham just to have the date cake. I am not sure what the cake is made from exactly but you can definitely taste the dates, vanilla and toffee. 

Balani Waltham Date Cake

If you are in the Waltham area or looking to try a new restaurant for your next date night, I highly recommend Balani. This restaurant impressed me in so many ways from the amazing service to delicious food and a fab environment. Definitely worth putting on your to go list.

Good Eats Boston: Pauli’s

I finally went to the popular Pauli’s sandwich shop in Boston and I totally get what the fuss is about. This place is awesome and it is an easy choice for this week’s good eat’s Boston feature. What I love about Pauli’s is that there is nothing pretentious about it, just super good food and excellent service. 

Pauli's Skinny Vinny Salad

The restaurant is small but with enough room to fill a decent amount of people. I went there on Saturday afternoon around 2:30 pm and it was pretty packed which is a good sign.  I was with my hubby who ordered the lobster roll and I ordered the Skinny Vinny Sandwich. If you love seafood you cannot visit Pauli’s without trying their famous  lobster roll. You have the option to have it warm or cold. We prefer the warm version most of the time so we chose to have it warm. It was absolutely delicious even my husband who grew up around great seafood said it was really good which says a lot. 

The Skinny Vinny Sandwich which is made with eggplant, fresh mozzarella, roasted red peppers & pesto sauce is delicious. I am always worried when I order eggplant because some restaurants mess it up but this one was perfectly crisp on the outside and well seasoned. We loved the Skinny Vinny sandwich so much we decided to order the salad version for take-out. Similar to the sandwich the salad includes mixed greens, red onion, grape tomato, cucumber, green pepper, eggplant, fresh mozzarella, roasted red peppers and a house made basil pesto sauce is amazing.

So the next time you are in Boston, head over to Pauli’s and try one of their delicious sandwiches, Salads or wraps. I promise you will not be disappointed. I feel like it is a stop everyone should make when they visit Boston. I plan on going back to try their fish and chips and clam chowder. 

Pauli’s is located in Boston’s buzzing North End district and is easily accessible on the subway if you not driving.

Good Eats Boston: The new By Chloe Carrot Dog

Boston’s restaurant scene is hot with so many new restaurants opening and new menu offerings. One of my favorite new menu item is the Carrot Dog from By Chloe, a vegan spot with 4 locations in Boston including the buzzing Boston Seaport area. By Chloe has become a regular feature on our Good Eats Boston series and for good reason. They know how to do vegan food well. 

Good Eats Boston: The new By Chloe Carrot Dog

By Chloe Carrot Dog

I know what you are thinking, Carrot Dog sounds like a very out of the box hot dog style. Should you try it? My answer is yes, It’s delicious! Once you hear how it is made it will all make sense. 

The Carrot Dog is made from whole, hand-picked carrots that have been cured and seasoned with salt, pepper, garlic and oregano, smoked over local oak and maple wood, aged, and then grilled. It’s served classic NY style with sauerkraut and Sir Kensington’s Classic Yellow Mustard in a toasted potato bun. Sounds good, right? I am actually mad at myself for not thinking about this first. 

If you stop at By Chloe I highly recommend trying some of their sweets too. From red velvet cupcakes,  donuts to cookies, they have it all. You can also order smoothies and ice cream that are much needed this summer.
