Flora....Where it all began for Arlington as a food destination. They keep putting out great food and are great people.

Both Thai Moon and Sweet Chili for Thai food. I prefer the Spicy Chicken and other dishes at Thai Moon more but Sweet Chili is quite good too.
And how can I not mention Pasha...the wait (always!) is worth it. Such flavor! Amazing Turkish food.

Not Your Average Joe's is almost perfect all the time, and yes, they have an interesting take on food.
ZA on Mass Ave in East Arlington has a mac'n'cheese pizza that is a must try.
Sweet Chili is my favorite lunch place in Arlington Center. Awesome Thai food, nothing super glamorous but the flavors are always very bold. Try the hot basil fried rice.

Scutra for food combinations that are amazing, Tryst for the desserts, ZA for the lettuce wedge, and Gemma for some really fresh Italian.. but where do I eat the most often? ichef's (the Heights) buffalo chicken rollup is the best I've had.

I'm a fan of Olivio's on Mass Ave. The food is deeeeelicious, can't go wrong with having the half portion option. I highly recommend having a cantaloupe martini & save room for the Panacotta.
