Veggie Galaxy - Why does everyone like this place?

Image
I love a good vegetarian restaurant. Veggie Galaxy isn't one. Look,  I get it. I wanted to like it too.

The burger was enjoyable-ish but not something I'd ever order again. One step up from a properly cooked Dr. Praeger's burger. Perhaps the Black Bean Burger is better.





Desserts:


Peanut Butter Chocolate Cake - Too sweet, like a sugary, child's peanut butter treat.


If you insist on or are for to eat here, I suggest getting the Rachel (I tried a few bites of a friend's once) with red cabbage slaw as your side. If you have to do dessert, the Snickers Cheesecake was the least offensive.

Holy Hungry Mother of God

I'm no longer sure Russell House Tavern is my favorite restaurant in the Boston area. Hungry Mother is amazing.

Book a reservation or get there (Tuesday-Sunday) early, by 5:10, to grab a seat in the bar area. Their dress code, straight from the front page of their website is, "Please wear clothing; proper attire not required." Now that's my kind of place.

They have four beers on tap, but they're always an interesting assortment. There are of course also fun cocktails and a nice list of whiskey, etc.

Any food you order is a safe bet, but here are some highlights from my experiences:










Also, they will pick up discounted movie tickets for you for Kendall Square Cinema next door. That makes for a great date night.
