Boston Restaurant Blog -- November, 2006
Monday, November 27, 2006
As I have mentioned a few times times in this blog (or was it my other blog?), Mass. Ave. between the Arlington border and Harvard Square has an amazing array of dining spots. You can get excellent Greek, Afghan, Chinese, Indian, Thai, Cambodian, Mexican, Korean, and Japanese food, just to name a few. But among the exotic ethnic restaurants along this stretch of road, there is also an old-fashioned American restaurant and bar called Cambridge Common that serves good dinners, good beer, and perhaps the best boneless buffalo wings in the Boston area.
The boneless buffalo wings at Cambridge Common can be ordered either mild or hot, with the hot version being the one that I like so much. Beneath the spicy coating appears to be some kind of glaze that boosts the hot pepper flavor even more. The glaze also imparts a crunchy texture that is rather unique; too many places don't seem to bother with adding a crunch to their boneless wings, making for a rather uninspiring eating experience. And while I can think of a few places in the Boston area that get their boneless wings done right (Donohue's in East Watertown is one), none seem to approach the level of Cambridge Common.
If you would like the address for Cambridge Common, here it is: Cambridge Common, 1667 Massachusetts Avenue, Cambridge, MA 02138. The phone number is (617) 547-1228.
Made another trip back to Cambridge Common last night, and yes, we had a round of tater tots, and as usual, they went perfectly with the drinks (especially the beers). Also had their outstanding boneless Buffalo wings, and an order of nachos that was rather uninspiring, unfortunately.
