Scorpion bowls and Tapas at Moonstones in Chelmsford

The Mo and I took his parents out to dinner at Moonstones for a belated father's day celebration.  I wanted to do small bites instead of large heavy meals so we could try a few different things.

Being the lush that we are, my mother in law and I split a scorpion bowl for two. It even came with the flaming 151 shot in the center of the volcano bowl.

Drinks and appetizers on the outdoor patio at Tavern in the Square

Tavern in the Square was a welcoming addition to the Burlington bar/restaurant scene.  With so many new corporate offices being built in the area, there was a lack of bars to support the after work drinking crowd.

Although, its awkwardly located in an executive park, the modern bar/restaurant has plenty of parking and a great al fresco area.  The clientele during the lunch rush and after work are typically business men from the area.  There are lots of umbrellas, plants and trees to camouflage the background traffic.  After throwing down a few drinks, who even notices the cars anyway?

During a beautiful afternoon, my friends and I were able to score seats on the patio.  We split a few appetizers and ordered a round of drinks.  The Thai calamari was served on a large platter with daikon and drizzled in Thai sweet chili sauce.  The portion was small and it was more "tapas" like.  I think our order was just messed up because the table nearby also ordered it and got doubled the amount.  The drinks were good. I got the Buddha martini which had lemongrass and ginger and my friend got the mai thai served in a cute Hawaiian mug.

Thai Calamari $11.99

Newly opened Tech Heng Cambodian restaurant on Chelmsford Street

This hole in the wall restaurant space has undergone many different owners and cuisines.  When the Mo and I first started dating, it was known as Koh Kong over a decade ago.  It was unoccupied for a long period of time before becoming Neak Meas Cambodian restaurant selling $5.00 noodle soups to compete with Simply Khmer.  After that didn't work out, it was a Chinese takeout selling roast ducks and pigs.  Needless to say, the Chinese takeout didn't last either.
