The Spicy Tofu and Vegetables might not be on the menu when I go back. But, I am certain that my next experience at Dalat will be just as outstanding.
And unlike meals that you may get out at larger chain restaurants, this meal left you feeling satisfied but not overly full or weighted down.
Dalat on Park Avenue always makes the most yummy of foods and you cannot really be disappointed if you have an adventurous side and a willing palette.
There’s nothing like a wonderful “chef’s special” to tease my tastebuds. Also, knowing that it is something “special”. It adds a bit of mystery to it.
Knowing the Vietnamese culture embraces a strong work ethic—that kind of dedication is exactly why Dalat is a stand out for Vietnamese cuisine in this area.
Overall, Dalat is a restaurant that I would have no problem going back to but it would not pop into my mind as a place that is a “must go back to.”
Over the past few years, Vietnamese has become one of my favorite ethnic foods and Dalat Restaurant on Park Avenue in Worcester doesn’t disappoint.
I have never met a person that I have introduced to Vietnamese cuisine that did not fall in love with it. In addition, truth be told, I am addicted!
Vietnamese food is more than just phở and upon stopping at Dalat Restaurant on Park Avenue in Worcester, MA, I chose from one of the other 104 menu options.
The preparation of the Chicken Sautée from Dalat on Park Avenue in Worcester, MA was perfect; both the chicken and veggies were cooked just right.
The Hu Tieu My Tho from Dalata on Park Avenue in Worcester had clear noodles and well filled with seafood. I added Sriracha sauce to spice things up.
Dino’s may not be the prettiest, shiniest, or most innovative, but it is great nonetheless for its charm and consistent level of quality.
The promised combinations were far more interesting on the menu than on the pallet: the pasta, the meat, and the stuffing were all too similar in texture.
The Seafood Calabrese from Dino’s was huge; unfortunately, the flavor was not.
The crust on Dino’s Vesuvius Pizza was very thick, and, overall, it was a good pizza for my mature pizza palate.
I can honestly say that the meat lasagna from Dino’s in Worcester is something I would come back for.
The portion from Dino’s in Worcester was enormous, but I would rather have had less food with a more consistent sauce and a better ratio of fresh seafood.
The hot summer day lent itself to enjoy a small appetizer pizza and the Italian Antipasto from Dino’s on Lord Street in Worcester, MA.
Italian at an Italian restaurant? I went with the sirloin steak and Caesar salad from Dino’s Ristorante Italiano on Lord Street in Worcester.
I chose Dino’s Veal Soprano: veal sautéed and topped with prosciutto, Fontana cheese and fresh sage in a sweet, light tomato sauce with leeks and tomatoes.
The ingredients in Dino’s veal cutlet parmigiana were there to make this an outstanding dish, but it just seemed to lack some finesse and seasoning.
After some discussion I decided on a spicy Chicken Parmigiana from Dino’s, which is my “go-to” dish having enjoyed it at many of Worcester’s restaurants.
Give me some spice and you made my day; the “The Green Chili” burger from The Fix on Shrewsbury Street in Worcester was what I was going to be having.
A vegetarian option from The Fix: Seared tuna, spicy kimchi, sesame chips, Sriracha aioli, sweet soy, on a sesame roll. I loved this non-burger, burger.

For good measure (and to add a little health to this burger) I opted to add avocado. The burger was a well prepared perfectly cooked top quality hamburger.
The Classic Burger from The Fix was perfect: the avocado was fresh and plentiful, and the combo of gouda, avocado and bacon on a pretzel bun was amazing.
The Fix on Shrewsbury Street in Worcester, MA offers unique, artisan burgers, including the Chef’s special, Lamb Burger.
A beef patty served on a brioche roll, with sautéed mushrooms, grilled onions, arugula, provolone cheese and truffle mayo; this was no ordinary burger.
The crunch of the bacon was a great counterpoint to the soft texture of the burger, and its the smoky flavor was just enough to peek through the BBQ sauce.
The Fix’s very appropriately named, “Classic Burger,” is without exaggeration, the best burger I’ve ever tasted anywhere, anytime, period!
Skip your vegetables and go for red meat; the Pork Belly Burger, Crunchy Burger, are to die for, whereas the veggie burger was not my favorite from The Fix.
The Fix’s take on a salad: a huge classic burger, grilled perfectly, on top of an iceberg lettuce wheel, finished with soft Brioche roll croutons.
I chose The Fix’s house grind combination for my burger with a focaccia roll, blue cheese and crispy fried prosciutto served with a side of veggie fries.
