N-GON Viet Subs, 321 Crescent Street in Brockton on Thursday, June 15, 2023.

Starting up the list strong with N-Gon's new Vietnamese coffee located at 321 Crescent St. I've tried the coffee, and it's a mixture of sweet and robust coffee flavors, almost like a strong tasty espresso shot. You can taste the ground coffee beans with a kiss of sweet creamy milk. This drink isn't like anything I've tasted before in Brockton and surely can compete with big coffee chains as it's locally made in Brockton. The drink starts at $5.25, and for a large, it goes up by a dollar. The restaurant is known mainly for its savory Bánh mì, a sandwich on a French baguette, stuffed with uniquely spiced chicken and pickled vegetables. The restaurant has also added rice plates to add more variety to their iconic chicken sandwiches.

Brockton Beer Company

Brockton Beer Company's new updated menu comes with a variety of new food items including poutine, to pork belly adobo bao buns, "beer-ia" chicken eggrolls, soft baked pretzel, and oxtail gyro bao bun. Oct. 19, 2023.

Burgers, craft beers and sweet desserts have arrived at 121 Main St, Brockton. The local business updated its menu to wave summer goodbye and introduce new creations for the fall. Patrons can enjoy bomboloni, a flaky stuffed dessert with three flavors to choose from, but I suggest trying all. An exciting twist to the menu is the communal appetizers that are meant to be shared, from poutine, to pork belly adobo bao buns, "beer-ia" chicken eggrolls, soft baked pretzels and oxtail gyro bao bun. The restaurant is mainly known for the beers and sandwiches, but they're shaking up the momentum. 

Yaz's Table

Cleopatra's Royal Gimlet is made of hibiscus-Infused Barr Hill Gin, house lavender honey, lemon juice and Butterfly Pea Ice Bomb. Yaz's Table, which serves up new American cuisine with an Egyptian twist, is located at 1209 Bedford St. Abington on Thursday, April 28, 2022.

Yaz's Table, located at 1209 Bedford St. Abington, is serving an Egyptian flare that flows from the food and the crafted cocktails. Customers can expect a change of the boozy elixirs as the Autumn season rolls in; specialty cocktails include their take on a signature bloody Mary with a blend of Egyptian spices. One cocktail I highly recommend is the espresso martini. Right in the middle is a solid espresso sphere with sparkly garnishes that slowly melts into the creamy cocktail.

"The cocktails are designed with all the five senses in mind and every taste region of your palate: bitter, sweet, sour, salty, and savory. Our menu is where science and art meet, crafting beautiful experiences with delicately infused spirits and liquors and memorable garnishes that cause the insatiable need to snap a picture before even taking a sip," owner Yasmine Zakhary said.
