Flavor Boom Is Opening in Watertown

A couple of months ago, it was reported that a new dining spot featuring pizza and Mexican food might be replacing a Watertown pizzeria that also featured Armenian dishes. Now we have learned that another restaurant is coming to that building, though it looks like both new spots will apparently be opening in the same block now.

According to a poster within the Friends of Boston's Hidden Restaurants Facebook group page, Flavor Boom is now planning to open on Arsenal Street where Flaming Pit had been, with signs in the windows showing a logo for the place. A website for the restaurant mentions that it will be a "gourmet fast food restaurant and caterer specializing in slow-cooked Asian dishes with an international twist. Served over rice or as sandwiches." No opening date has been given as of yet, so stay tuned for updates.

Back in May, a sign out front indicated that VR Las Amigas was planning to open soon in the former Flaming Pit space; it is not known if that dining spot might still be taking over part of the space (we will post an update on that as well once we learn more).

The address for Flavor Boom is 222 Arsenal Street, Watertown, MA, 02472.

[August 3 update: A poster within the Friends of Boston's Hidden Restaurants Facebook group page says that VR Las Amigas will actually be opening in the Flaming Pit space while Flavor Boom will be opening in a former catering space in the same block.] 

[August 15 update: A Facebook post within the Boston Bike Party Facebook community page indicates that Flavor Boom is now open, and that it features Indonesian food.]
