a slightly upscale comfort food spot just outside of Maynard Center that is a local favorite.

Sapporo Ramen, Cambridge, MA
a tiny Japanese place in the Porter Exchange building that serves up some of the best ramen in the Boston area.

One-on-One Food Chats

We have been hosting a number of discussions with panels of experts talking about food and restaurants, and now we are starting to get into one-on-one chats with people around the Boston area.

This Issue's Feature

Pinning on Pinterest!

As you may know, the Boston's Hidden Restaurants site has hundreds and hundreds of food photos, along with many more pictures of various restaurants around the region. So when the photo-based social media site Pinterest started to take off over the past few months, we decided to sign on, and we are now posting photos to that site nearly every day.

Are you on Pinterest yet? If so, let's connect! Our Pinterest page can be found at the link above, and please note--we also re-pin a lot of food photos from other folks, so if you have a good one, let us know!
