Cryan's of North Branch

The Cryan's of North Branch restaurant is now closed. Very sad since I actually wanted to visit it sometime.

Cryan's of North Branch was an essential part of dining and entertainment in Somerset and Middlesex Counties since 1999.

Kowloon is Chinese Restaurant in Saugus, MA which features all sorts of excellent Chinese dishes. This is not your ordinary Chinese Restaurant. You can find Polynesian Specialties, Cantonese and so much more.

Kowloon has a large dinning room, so even if there's a lot of people waiting on a Saturday night, the wait time isn't very long. The Boston Comedy connection has a space upstairs at Kowloons, so you can go for an early dinner and enjoy a comedy show afterwards!

The food selection is excellent and the food is very good. The Pu Pu Platter seemed to be the big hit for most guests, almost every table had the Pu Pu Platter flame going. The General Gau Chicken was outstanding, and there was plenty of food to take home.

I would highly recommend that you check out Kowloon in Saugus, its worth the drive! Download the takeout menu and think about going back to Kowloon!

Fortune Cookie

Found on a Fortune Cookie:
If your cookie is still
in one piece, buy lotto.
Fortune cookie was not in one piece, so I won't buy lotto.

Metropolitan Bar & Grill

Yesterday I had lunch at the Metropolitan Bar & Grill at the new Natick Collections in Natick, Massachusetts.

The Natick Collections opened up a new wing early this month, which featured elegant stores such as Nordstroms, Neiman Marcus, Apple, Brighton and many other find stores.

The Metropolitan Bar & Grill is located near the entrance between Sears and Nordstrom. It is right across from P.F. Chang China Bistro, which isn't open yet. Metropolitan Bar & Grill features a bar with several flat screen TVs and a nice lounge area. The TV screen were all tuned to ESPN, which were talking the Sunday football games.

I ordered the corned beef sandwich($11) and a Diet Coke. The Corned Beef was on a white sour dough toast bread and there was a lot of cold slaw with only a couple of slices of corned beef. It came with cup of french fries and a small cup of pickles. It was a pretty good meal. However, I have had better Corned Beef sandwiches that offered a lot more meat, at least the Metropolitan Bar & Grill corned beef wasn't dry.

My co-worker had the Bacon-Egg-Burger from the special Burger Menu, and he ordered a side of french fries. The side of fries was a waste. For $3 you get a small cup of french fries, much smaller than what you would get with small order of small fries at McDonalds. The burger looked really good, and my co-worker said he enjoyed it. The burger cost $9.

We were surprise when the waiter brought over the salt and pepper. The salt was in a little square container that you scoop out the what you need. Also the ketchup and mustard were in open container square dishes. Cool modern design.

Overall it was a good experience, the service was very prompt and we were in and out in less than 40 minutes which isn't bad for a lunch crowd at the mall. The restaurant wasn't that crowded and people were able to get a seat almost immediately.

This is a fancy restaurant for a mall location and they seem to cater towards the power lunch crowded. I would recommend stopping by and trying the hamburgers. If your looking for some really good Corned Beef Sandwich, try Michael's Deli in Brookline.
