Life by Chocolate

Chocolate, white, milk, dark, in all its forms forms life. Chocolate truffles, caramels, and other confections are at the core of enjoyment. This is life by chocolate because death by chocolate is the wrong attitude.

This is the most elegant and upscale Indian restaurant that I have ever eaten in. They have a great spice bar where a chef will mix, for a party of three or more, his own beautiful blends of spices for mouth watering dishes. It's like being a Ballywood celeb and having your own personal chef. Well, since I'm a chef, I already have my own personal chef, pastry chef and chocolatier, still, I'm going to have to find a third person so Kim and I can do the Spice Bar.

I ate their Medu Vada, lentil dumplings, which were a meal unto themselves and a trip to southern India. Dumplings? These were most like donuts. I also had the Tandoori Shrimp Shaslik, which was very good. I had the garlic naan to go with it and some side cars and a mango lassi.

I loved the wait staff. Very attentive. I loved the food. I must say, it rivals Garam Masala. This is interesting because it also has southern Indian food, a completely different take on food. They don't, sob, have goat but they make up for it in their use of flavors. Very nice. I can't wait to go back and take Kim with me. She'll love it.

Well, my educated readers, I hope you enjoyed the reviews and I hope you get to eat at these restaurants.

Napoli Pizzeria

When I was in Quincy, I decided to stop and eat here. I just loved their meatball hero, grinder, sub, whatever you call it. The only thing I didn't like was no red gravy. So, I asked for a cup on the side and I was in heaven. Actually, I liked the hero as it was, with no red sauce. But the red sauce really made it. They bake their bread fresh though they don't actually make the dough. Still, it was very good. I also loved their pizza. Again, the dough, which they make there, is the reason I loved it so much.

This is staffed by a dedicated family of Italian restaurateurs. They owned a place in New York for years. I must say, New York is the poorer for them moving to Quincy. What a find in Massachusetts. Check it out.
