Cheap Eats ~ Boston

Boston, Cheap Eats, east coast By April 15, 2018 Tags: , , , , , , No Comments

If I had to choose a coast I would have to choose the West. I lived out there so don’t go there. But that don’t mean a brother can’t feast in the East. Ok, so that isn’t entirely true as I would love to hang my trucker hat in NYC someday but nothing wrong with quoting a little Biggie Smalls. And there ain’t nothing wrong with shining a light on the Boston food scene, which is at once historic and trending with some new foodie fads. Seems like gentrification is happening all over the map and Beantown is no exception. Finding a delicious mix of new and old in Boston is as easy as saying yes to burgers for breakfast. Oh and speaking of burgers for breakfast . . .

Bang for your OMAKASE (sushi tasting menu) Buck

Boston, New England, Sushi By December 12, 2017 Tags: , , , , , , , No Comments

The Vitals:
the spot: Cafe Sushi 1105 Massachusetts ave Cambridge MA 02138
the eats: Omakase (chef’s tasting menu of sushi, cooked items)
the bucks: $110
the full nelson: top shelf sushi meets no frills environment and an overall bargain of an omakase experience

I recently found myself in Boston searching for Cheap Eats (#staytuned) when a local chef put me in the know about Cafe Sushi, a full on Bang for your Sushi Buck place if you like to take your sushi to Omakase overdrive.  For the uninitiated, Omakase is Japanese for “I’ll leave it up to you”; essentially giving the chef carte blanche to design a tasting menu of the very best. The phrase infers respect but it also is saying to the chef – “show me what you got”. If you thought sushi was expensive, well omakase is taking upgrading your Benz to an AMG or at the right places, a full on Maybach. In the case of Cafe Sushi, I would say you are upgrading to a flagship Lexus – a relative bargain amongst the world of high end dining but far from chump change. And what is the MSRP you ask? $110 per person. Yes, this meal breaks triple digits before a single drop of sake or beer. Is it worth it? For the true sushiphile, read on and let the hunger games begin!!
