Distraction Brewing Co. 2 Belgrade Ave, Roslindale Brewery • $$
2 Belgrade Ave, Roslindale

“The Tall Man and I were looking for a low key hangout with baby in tow, and Distraction Brewing was the perfect place. This new-to-us brewery on the cute pedestrian-only Birch St. had an outdoor patio but we opted for seats inside.It's not a big place, but it has a good number of tables and bench seating in a brightly lit space. The Tall Man got the autumn flight of 4 beers (one being one of their maltinis), which he enjoyed for their variety. I wasn't up for imbibing so I got a Health-Aid kombucha from the fridge. (They also carry Athlete's nonalcoholic beer in cans.) They have some packaged snacks for purchase, but they encourage people to get food from local businesses to eat there. It was pretty darn convenient to pick up lunch from nearby Chilacates. It made for a very chill lunch and sip. We weren't even the only ones with a stroller! It was a relief to find a brewery that's not utterly mobbed and where we could bring the little one. I would definitely come back for another relaxing hangout.”

“It's been a while since we had been here. It was a birthday dinner so we wanted something special. Alas, it was mixed. The Mediterranean salad and the antipasto plate were good. The gnocchi in a meat sauce was excellent. The shrimp and pasta dish could have used more garlic and spices. Alas, the eggplant and chicken parm dishes were not that good. I could have done better. Basically, there was no real sauce, it looked like a can of stewed tomatoes had been poured over it - no spices, nothing. I could tell it was real eggplant, otherwise I would have thought it had been some random frozen thing. Not so sure about the chicken one. The service was pleasant and we appreciated that the waitress warned us that the bottle of wine we ordered was only half a bottle. The place is as cute and cozy as we remembered. Overall, a mixed bag.”

“I've been to the original Shanti in Dorchester years before, and liked it. But this was my first visit to their outpost in Roslindale. Their location made driving there a bit of a workaround. But one nice thing is, when you place an order online ahead of time, it gives you the option of curbside pick up. I was a bit late picking up my order. And then I still had to get it home before tucking in, so the bread was cool by then, the apps warm, while the entree remained hot. I gave their onion naan a go, and it was soft and good, but I'll probably go back to my garlic naan norm. The Veg Shanti Platter came with an assortment of their vegetable appetizers and 2 portions of each of 3 sauces. I only gave the sweet and tangy brown sauce a go since the other two tend to be spicy when I've tasted them elsewhere. There were 2 vegetable samosas (with a touch of heat in the potato filling), 1 aloo tikki patty (same, if I remember correctly), and a handful of vegetable fritters - some mixed, some likely quartered slices of potato, and I think I spotted a cauliflower one or two. Those weren't spicy, but were rather good. In place of my often ordered saag paneer, we got the malai kofta which came with either 2 or 3 (couldn't tell) rather sizeable vegetable balls hidden in a tasty vegetable cream sauce, which was accompanied with an order of basmati rice. This was ordered mild. It arrived spicy, north of what I'd consider to be light spicy, but manageable by me. Not so much by another diner though, unfortunately. I wonder if this was truly their mild, or if they read my order wrong, and defaulted to their normal spice level.”

Every time we have ordered from them, the service was prompt and the food is great. We have never eaten there since it’s more convenient to pick-up the food and take it home.”

“This is the only Subway nearby I will go to. They guy that owns it runs it and he's nice. There is this breakfast sandwich on flatbread...Black Forest Ham...where you can add your favorite toppings...lettuce tomato olives etc...then YES! orange chipotle sauce! This is the best breakfast sandwich ever in my opinion espec when you are tired of them on english muffins or bagels or in croissants etc. Anyway, everywhere else they bug me to tell them what I want for toppings while the item is heating up in the oven. That's so pushy and I hate that. Like they are gonna remember all the things and I won't have to repeat myself. God forbid they have to make small talk instead for the brief time it's in the oven. One place was so rude the guy didn't even bother to ask me if I wanted white or yellow for the egg. They have both normally and ask which you prefer but apparently he was out of one so just went ahead hurriedly with the other without telling me. So just go to this partic Rossie location and don't be put off. The personal pizzas are a fun treat.”

“This hits the spot, very good portions, like the crab rangoons (maybe put in a bit more crab or if you use imitation crab), spicy Singapore dish is great, good garlic chicken or beef, a bit stingy on the shrimp dish. Good appetizers. All cash keeps prices down but they have gone up a bit twice. Always have to ask for fortune cookies they never ask.”
