Restaurant week is not over and the from the looks of things, it will not end anytime soon for Buddha Bar.  The Mass. Ave. restaurant will feature a prix fixe menu for $20.11 year-round.  Menu items include Miso Soup, Vietnamese Spring Rolls, Korean BBQ Sandwich’s and Japanese Sea Bass Tacos.  This is good news for those on a budget, Buddha Bar can typically run you a nice tab without the prix fixe prices.

California Tortilla has debuted the Korean BBQ Taco.  Marinated steak, Korean BBQ sauce, kimchi slaw, fresh salsa, toasted sesame seeds and chopped scallions form the newest taco in the Cal Tort family.  Arguably it’s the largest of the taco bunch too…
