Thali at Rani’s World Foods

You may not expect to find fresh Indian cooking hidden inside a supermarket, but that’s exactly what’s happening at Rani’s World Foods. This cafeteria-style spread is best sampled with a thali, an Indian mixed plate consisting of two vegetarian dishes from a rotating selection, dal (lentils), roti (Indian flatbread), basmati rice and pickles. Sure, you may end up eating in the refrigerated foods section, but you won’t find fresher Indian food in town — even outside a grocery store. — Jim Begley

All-you-can-eat at Goyemon Sushi House

All-you-can-eat sushi is not for everyone; however, under the right circumstances, it can be quite the windfall. This is true of the spread at Sushi House Goyemon, where high-quality fish is served alongside Japanese staples. Besides the sushi, don’t miss the seared pork belly or innovative desserts. And here’s an insider secret: If you’re dining there after 11 p.m., you can even order Monta’s renowned shoyu ramen. Just keep that secret between us — they’re busy enough already. — JB
