3. Soulfire 737 Huntington Ave, Boston, MA 02115 (Mission Hill)

One thing the world needs more of is quality BBQ. Knowing this, Soulfire branched out to this second location ensuring that its famous pulled pork sammies, ribs, and mouthwatering sauces will satisfy the Boston masses. Try the fried mac and cheese and collard greens (trust us). If you’ve still got room for dessert, the fried dough is fantastic and can be shared between 2-3 people.

5. Buff's Pub 317 Washington St, Newton, MA 02482 (Newton)

West Newton's Buff Pub looks just like any pub -- with dark wood, televisions set to Boston sports games, and a row of booths and some tables. But the buffalo head mounted on the wall is an indication that you shouldn't think about passing on the Buffalo wings. They're so coveted because they're so traditional. Squeeze through the crowd of locals and BC students to snag a table, and go classic Frank's RedHot OR the Honey Hot, which is the former sweetened by a drizzle of honey. Stop yourself from drinking a side of the sauce, or don't.

6. BonChon 57 JFK Street, Cambridge, MA 02138 (Harvard Square)

After two years of construction fits and starts and tantrums, the much anticipated Korean fried chicken and tabletop-BBQ-grilling basement spot Bull Korean BBQ is now officially open in the Galleria at Harvard Square! Only thing is, it's now under the umbrella (and name) of NYC Korean chicken powerhouse BonChon -- so don't call it that other thing, or stuff will get awkward really fast.

7. Myers + Chang 1145 Washington St, Boston, MA 02118 (South End)

From the creator of Boston-favorite Flour Bakery, Asian-inspired Myers + Chang cooks up American twists on Taiwanese, Thai, and Vietnamese classics in its quirky South End location. The “punchy and craveable” menu options range from “Dim Sum-y Things” like a rich Crab Rangoon Dip to “Buns, Baos, Rolls + a Taco” like a tangy Korean BBQ Sloppy Joe to “Mama Chang’s Favorites” with options like, Wok Roasted Mussels with grilled garlic toast and Twice-Cooked Lamb Belly Stirfry with hot mustard and noodles. At lunch try variations on Vietnamese Banh Mi like Braised Shortrib and Asian Pear with traditional carrot-daikon slaw, pickled jalapenos, and sriracha aioli dressings. Stop in with a date on Monday or Tuesdays for themed menus and great deals on shareable meals.
