                  Great blog! I am always looking for authentic traditional Asian recipes and you seem to incorporate those nicely along with the more innovative stuff. I hope you will have an opportunity to review some restaurants in San Francisco. I am curious to see what you will think of them.

                  So thrilled to find this list- I moved to Davis Square last month and I work at a pharma company between Central and Kendall. What a good list!

                  Are you from Ohio too? I unfortunately don’t know the Ohio food scene nearly as well because my family didn’t eat out that much when I was a kid! I went to school in Boston and have stayed ever since! Plus I’m from Toledo, which isn’t even one of the biggest cities in Ohio!
