Market Basket, Shaws if I’m in a pinch.
I’m not crazy about the pizza around here and think that bar pizza is just so so. My favorite is the original Regina on Thatcher St. in Boston and the homemade square pizza they sell in the North End bakeries. Umberto’s is a favorite too.
Sticking with Bamboo Cafe on Belmont St., love the hot and sour soup.
La Scalla, I haven’t found anything better in the area.
