It truly is amazing how many gems are scattered across this country. It never ceases to amaze me. I found a listing for Masao's Kitchen on Happy Cow on my iPhone and about a 20 minute drive from Bedford's Hanscom Field we drove up to this place. It's half the size of the two surrounding restaurants, to the left a Guatamalan/Salvadorian restaurant and to the right a bargain pizzeria. It truly is amazing how we eat in this country where we have so much of everything yet mis-allocate our food and turn it into junk to eat.
|Food = Happy Pilot.|
|Salads and condiments to the left. To the right the display counter.|
|2 steam tables offer plenty of choices at $8.50 per pound.|
There was complimentary bread and a big container of filtered water.
After eating that delicious plate of food I saw a few sandwiches in the display case. "Ah, for the trip home," I thought. Then I thought about just a little taste. I cut it half to share so I wouldn't be the only feeling like I overate and before you knew it, it was gone. A perfect ciabbata, toothy and yeasty, lettuce holding the thing together with a crunch, a mayo type coating and the bbq came together in a perfect union of flavor and texture.
|The proverbial question, "Why can't I buy a sandwich like this everywhere?"|
|My dish came to .98 pounds. Not a bad price for a full plate of food.|
|There should be a 3rd word ... "delicious."|
|Masao should allow cell phone use here to call your friends to come and eat!|
It's so nice to know that 20 minutes away from one of my more common destinations is this little perfect place to eat. And for those who refuse to have a meal without animals, there are 3 other places within a stone's throw that I'm sure can serve you cruelty on a plate. Bravo Masao on your 11 years here.
