Among area bar food, I highly recommend Olde Magoun’s Saloon in Magoun Square (Broadway and Medford Street in Somerville).
Besides have a fabulous menu, they have a specials every night from Fish Taco Mondays ($6 plates) to Cajun/Creole Wednesdays.
One recent Wednesday I was blown away by the Crispy Catfish Bites served with a mouthwatering shrimp remoulade, Pan-fried Green Tomatoes with a buttermilk sauce and Rosemary Skewered Gulf Shrimp – all delicious and perfectly cooked with large servings even though they are all appetizers.
It’s also a great neighborhood Irish bar with lots of space and a really laid back atmosphere to grab a drink, dine with a friend or just people-watch. Try it.
