Moody Street in Waltham has been adding some great restaurants lately, but my favorite for 2013 is Moody's Delicatessen and Provisions. Part deli, part sandwich shop, part cafe, part specialty grocery store, this addition is full of character, and meat. And those are my two favorite things.
Look at those sausages hanging above the counter. All made by the guys who run the place. I bought some of their garlic sausages around thanksgiving to use in my stuffing and boy were they delicious. I also bought what is now my favorite cheese I've ever eaten in my life - Pave D'affinois. So creamy. So expensive, but worth every penny.
This time, we decided to order lunch and eat-in. We've heard great things about the sandwiches and I want to take my friend Katelyn here in a few weeks when she's visiting. I wanted to be able to offer a few suggestions.
I will definitely be suggesting that she get a bag of THESE. House made truffle chips. Rob and I ate the whole bag before our sandwiches were ready, and I seriously considered buying another bag.
The Bahn Mi. Oh my. This sandwich fell down from sandwich heaven. Crisp pork belly, country pate, smoked pork, daikon, carrots, cilantro, sriracha aioli on a baguette...I don't even really know what half of the ingredients are, but I know the combination of them is one hell of a good sandwich.
In addition to the regular coke products, they have lots of cool colas to try. This Cherry Tree cola was fascinating. Like a tea-cola - I can't explain it. Next time, I'm going to grab a can of Dr. Brown's Cel-ray soda - CELERY SODA - to try.
This shop is not cheap, but so far everything we've gotten from there was worth the extra money. I love having this type of place so close to us, and I intend to continue taking advantage of it's unique offerings.
