3 Country Bistro Woburn

3 Country Bistro in Woburn is located smack in the middle of downtown and I have only visited once but decided to give them another try. I looked at Y*** and have seldom seen more 5-star reviews for a restaurant.

A very unassuming outside.

I decided to start with Tatsuta-Age ($5.25). Ginger batter fried chicken tenderloin, Japanese style. I didn't pay attention to that the menu said tenderloin and was expecting dark meat. It was fried nicely but ended up being a bit on the dry side.

You get soup and salad with the entree. The miso soup was OK, not a fan of miso soup, but the salad was nice and fresh with a light dressing.

This was the reason for the visit, Chirashi ($16.95). Assorted fresh fish and vegetables over a bed of sushi rice. This looked very nice with a little heart stuck to the wasabi. It was chockful of good stuff, Pickled veggies, flying fish roe, spinach and some very thin avocado slices. The fish was very fresh and I especially liked the lightly charred salmon belly (left) and the eel. The pretty flower at the bottom was slices of hake artfully wrapped. The rice underneath was seasoned properly and at the right temperature. This might have been on the expensive side for a Chirashi, but it was very good and might be worth another visit.

It's a small place with just a few seats at the sushi bar and not too many tables, but it was immaculately clean and the service was very good and everyone was very nice.

  1. Hidden Boston lists the Indonesian fried rice as one of their top 15 dishes ...
