• Cabot’s Brazilian Combo is a behemoth (four ice creams, four sauces, and “enough whipped cream to give several Brazilians a close shave”) but it’s totally acceptable to eat one by yourself. [Food On the Food]

• The iced tea at Brown Sugar Cafe is to die for: “Sweet but not too sweet, creamy but not too creamy…you get the idea.” [Fork It Over, Boston!]

The Boston Shaker is “ike a modern apothecary, with tons of shelves full of small bottles and interesting tools and equipment, including an array of options for cracking ice exactly to your specifications.” [BellyGlad]

• This is what it’s like to eat the Pasta from Hell at East Coast Grill: “Imagine the hottest habanero you ever eaten. Imagine the rip-roar flash burn of a Jalapeno, the prickly Novocain of a Szechuan peppercorn, the sour sizzle-pop of a hit of Tabasco. Then multiply that by hundreds of thousands. Imagine an unchecked forest-fire flame searing your throat and tongue and the roof your mouth to a well-done cannibal’s steak. Water only prolongs your agony. Milk barely dampens the flames. That, my friends, is the Pasta From Hell.” [Lingbo Li]

Osushi “has gotten even better over time.” [Fun and Fearless in Beantown]
