Today we went to New Deal Fish Market, a fish market in Cambridge. This fish market has a lot of fresh fish and other seafood that Japanese people like (but difficult to get at other fish markets) , so it is very popular by Japanese (and by Americans as well) who live in the Boston area. The main purpose for our visit today was sweet shrimp (very cheap but sooo tasty), but because of the snow storm we had last week fishermen could not go for fishing and thus they did not have any... So we just bought two pieces of salmon collar (I grilled them at home, and they were so fatty and tasty) .
|その後、どこかで遅めのお昼ごはんを食べようということになり、同じ通りにある Muqueca というブラジル料理のお店に行ってきました。ここはシーフードがメインのブラジル料理店です。|
After fish shopping, we wanted to have the late lunch, and decided to go to Muqueca, a Brazilian restaurant, on the same street (near Inman Square). This restaurant offers the dishes from the region of Santo (lots of seafood).
This is called "pirão", kind of fish gravy, came with the moqueca.
It also came with rice.
We also ordered the fried whole red snapper. It was crispy outside and we loved it, too.
Underneath the fish were fried plantains, french fries and some fresh vegetables. I also loved the plantains (so soft and sweet).
The container of hot sauce (quite hot) was on each table. The fried fish was even tastier with this sauce.
|昼食後、おなかいっぱいでおまけに外は極寒なのに、夫がアイスクリームを食べると言い張るのでレストラン近くの Christina's へ。ここは私たちの大好きな手作りアイスクリームのお店です。|
After the lunch, I was so full and it was very cold outside but my husband insisted to get some ice cream at Christina's (also in Inman Square). We love this ice cream shop and come frequently (in summer).
They always have ~40 different flavors of ice cream.
