“Good Food”
Reviewed June 30, 2013

Enjoyed a chicken quesadilla and the fried were delicious! Was very close and in walking distance to the Holiday Inn. Very reasonable priced. Thanks!

“A heavy meal”
Reviewed January 27, 2013

This place is not great for public transport. It's a drive. And it's tucked away in a small shopping plaza and is easy to miss.

The food is very creative and fairly inexpensive. We ordered rostie, which are pies made with veggie, protein, and a ton of hash browns. It was good, but way too heavy and a bit oily. Many vegetarian choices overall.

“Inexpensive, interesting, and filling food”
Reviewed December 22, 2012

This Portuguese-influenced little place has an eclectic menu (burritos, seafood, salads, etc.), but features "rosti", BIG puffy potato pancake-like things stuffed with different kinds of protein, cheese, veggies, etc. I had the bacalao (cod), with olives and cheese, and it was delicious. It's very close to the Somerville Holiday Inn on Washington Street between Union and Charlestown, just north of East Cambridge, off McGrath. We did takeout -- there were plenty of tables at 6 pm on a Friday.
