Boston Restaurant Blog -- August, 2006

We went to Zaleks, a little sandwich shop behind Wakefield Center the other night. It is literally a hidden gem, as it cannot be seen from the main street, and I had no idea the place even existed until last week. I was very impressed by Zaleks, however, as the food was above and beyond what you typically get in a sub shop.
Zaleks is a bright, clean place with a handful of seats both inside and outside of the restaurant. The menu has all kinds of sandwiches, as well as a number of seafood dishes and a smattering of Greek entrees. We ordered the monte christo, chicken kabobs over rice, and grape leaves, all of which were very good, though the rice pilaf was a bit on the bland side. It took awhile for us to get our food, but again, this Zaleks is a step up from your typical sub shop, so mostly everything here is cooked fresh.
I may end up featuring Zaleks on our site, especially since we will soon be adding a new section to our cuisine list--sandwiches--and Zaleks would be a good candidate for this section. But I want to try Zaleks a couple more times before we add it to our site. I will try to report back on the place as soon as I can.
