Tasty on the Hill Opens in Medford
A new eatery has opened a few miles north of Boston, and it features a Portuguese sandwich that cannot be found anywhere else in the region.
The Medford Transcript is reporting that Tasty on the Hill is now open in Medford, taking over the space on Boston Avenue where Tasty Gourmet had been until closing in June. The article says that the new dining spot offers traditional American fare such as bagels, breakfast sandwiches, waffles, pancakes, omelets, salads, and burgers, with its signature item being a Portuguese specialty called a Francesinha, which is similar to a club sandwich and includes layers of meat, cheese, and eggs, and is topped with a house sauce. Variations of the sandwich include traditional, burger, grilled chicken, smoked salmon, bacalhau (cod), and vegetarian, according to the Transcript. Owner Antonio Pereira doesn't believe Francesinhas can be found in the Boston area, or anywhere in the United States on a regular basis for that matter, though a website check does show it being offered in a handful of places around the country.
For now, Tasty on the Hill is open for breakfast and lunch daily from 7:00 AM to 3:00 PM, though the restaurant may start offering dinners at some point as well.
The address for this new dining spot in Medford is: Tasty on the Hill, 321 Boston Avenue, Medford, MA, 02155. Its website can be found at http://www.tastyonthehill.com/
