SILK ROAD BBQ

According to their Web site, Genghis Kahn declared this Asian-inspired barbecue "not bad." They seem like honest folk at Silk Road BBQ, so we have no issue taking their word at face value. The Mongol emperor himself could not be reached for comment, so it can only be assumed that it's the "secret stuff" that goes into Silk Road's pomegranate chili sauce that satisfied the soft-spoken Kahn. Whatever the secret, they add it to their pulled pork and jerk chicken sandwiches grilled with a side of slaw. Food Network's Canadian show Eat St. was just there, too, to help keep this charcoal-grilled tradition alive. The Mongol tribesmen under Kahn feared nothing, not even death. The Silk Road guys are kinda like that, except death is bad weather. They definitely don't fear bad weather at this four-seasons joint. So get a skewer of jerk chicken, pork tenderloin, or leg of lamb and take a leisurely walk down to Boston Harbor on a nice or not-so-nice afternoon. If the Kahn says it's "not bad," then you'll love it for sure. Those fuckers were crazy.

    Summer in Boston traditionally means exploring the city, getting sunburned, and ironically (but totally seriously) drinking Mike's Hard Lemonade. But now that meals-on-wheels mania has put the boot on our fair city, it also means chasing down every food truck in town.
  •   CARNIVORES AND HERBIVORES MAKING PEACE -- ON A BLANKET  |  June 13, 2011
    When dinosaurs roamed the Earth, the carnivores often ate the herbivores. But then we evolved. Today, meat-eaters and plant-eaters can coexist — and even share a blanket for a jolly picnic in the park.
