  1. Not much has changed in Portsmouth. There is a fierce Portland contingent on this board--you may want to research some of the Portland postings. I liked Fore Street and 555 and the fries at Duckfat.
  2. l'As du Falafel on rue des Rosiers is a great experience. If you are foodies, you will enjoy la Grande Epicerie at Bon Marche. Foie gras sandwich is 4 euro 95. Visit rue Cler in the 7th--it's open on Sunday, and you must stop in at Davoli while there.
  3. With so many cheap, great eats, and such tight quarters, many Thais don't cook! ← Rich Thai people have cooks, whose entire lives are spent pounding chilis--way too labor intensive to do yourself.
  4. When we were kids in Bangkok back in the 60's, Likhit was one of the first restaurants my dad took us to. I still remember the hordes of mangy cats underfoot and thinking that they were what was on the plate.
  5. Peter, as our Sukhumvit expert, are you familiar with this place: http://www.bangkokpost.com/110108_Realtime...008_real012.php
  6. Here's an older post you may find helpful: http://forums.egullet.org/index.php?showtopic=103539
  7. The Ugly American

    They should open a branch in Paris.
  8. Brattleboro VT Food

    FYI, Brattleboro is in Vermont, though you're right across the river from Keene, NH. Keene has all the big box stores and some good restaurants. If you want to avoid income tax and sales tax, NH is the place for you.
  9. You never told us how you got home.
  10. If that's the case, then CSB is a must. I am an offal devotee. ← CSB is about as far as you can get from where you are staying ($30 cab ride) in a distinctly non-urban location--I find the sub-level room gloomy and the cult of Tony Maws a little creepy. I know for a fact that the T takes me into Harvard Square... how close is CSB to the campus? WHS (or anyone else out there who has been to O Ya), please do me a favor and read this post on my blog, and then tell me if you still think I would enjoy eating at O Ya. Thanks! ← If you are a sushi purist, Oiishi might be a better option. Ten minute walk to CSB from Harvard Square T--check their website for directions.

O Ya is new face on the Boston scene--innovative sushi, but not open Monday night. (No 9 Park is open on Monday BTW). Much closer to your hotel. http://www.boston.com/ae/food/restaurants/...erene_hideaway/
  12. Worcester, Mass

    Weintraub's on Kelly Square is a great old jewish deli with hand-cut pastrami--looks like a time capsule from 1941. Good chopped liver and fries, matzoh ball soup--eh. Next door is a good Eastern European grocery store selling multi varieties of sausage, etc. Seedy neighborhood, great atmosphere.
  13. raw oysters in NH/VT

    Surf restaurant in Nashua NH has an excellent raw bar. http://www.surfseafood.com/index.html
  14. Try Angela's Pasta and Cheese in Manchester
  15. Also check out www.chowhound.com--the Boston board has a lot of activity.
