Masa Woburn

Happy, happy Friday! As you might imagine, I had been worried about this week for quite some time, and I am feeling a major sense of the relief now that this little interview is over. It’s been a busy week of work and blogging events, and I am looking forward to a relaxing weekend. We have to take the boat out of the water which will require a day of work, but I am also hoping to wander around the Head of the Charles and to have some delicious brunch.

My favorite brunch in the world was again cemented last week when, on an errand in the burbs, we decided to check out Masa’s Woburn location. I have long proclaimed Masa as my favorite Boston brunch spot, and it’s suburban outpost was just as delectable. I started with a Bloody Mary, as spicy as they could make it, and they were not shy with the horseradish! I also chowed down on the pickled jalapeno, which I always think adds a nice touch. This drink is like a meal!

I usually pass the bread basket in a restaurant except for at Masa. Fresh, warm corn bread to adorn with three different spreads is usually devoured before our brunch entrees come. I am a big believer in corn bread, and I love start my brunch of this way.

And then comes the best part, my Southwest Eggs Benedict which feature biscuits, avocado, salsa, and a spicy Hollandaise. The flavors in this meal are outrageously good, and it is always cooked to perfection.

The chefs at Masa are not afraid of a perfectly runny egg. As I soaked it up with pieces of biscuit, I praised them aloud, proclaiming the dish a plate of awesome. Our server heard, and it made him laugh. But he did agree. Smile

The nice thing about the Masa in Woburn is that it was maybe 1/3 full during our brunch so it was very quiet as opposed to lots of city restaurants during brunch. It’s also next to a Whole Foods for stocking up on Grillo’s pickles and kombucha.


Feeling relaxed and full after our perfect brunch, we decided to do some leaf peeping in nearby Lexington and Concord. I love how many historical sites and beautiful pastures dot the landscape in these areas, completely unassumingly. . . like oh hey, there’s the Little Women house! We definitely live in a great area for things like that.

Brunch and aimless driving made for a great Saturday with my favorite person.

    Holy egg goodness that looks amazing! I may have to venture out that way ASAP!

    Thanks for sharing this hidden jewel!

    Oooh I used to go here all the time! I like it much better than the South End location actually. A relaxing weekend for me also includes brunch. And yoga. And shopping :)

    I agree, that dish is all kinds of awesome. I’m totally craving it now!

    Adam loves grillo’s pickles! I’m a big fan of moonbrine myself.

    Such a pleasantly unexpected location. Especially convenient when grocery shopping after the $1 tapa happy hr at the bar :-) I love that bread basket too and they’ve got a great tartare appetizer I get just about every time I visit.

    This looks great! I’ve always been curious about Masa. My most relaxing weekend entails brunch, being outdoors, and just doing nothing!

    This whole post looks pretty relaxing to me. Jon is a little bit of a history buff and always talks about going to the Concord/Lexington area for a drive; maybe we will go soon and have brunch!

    Looks like all that spicy food you love! And what a perfect yolk!

    I just saw Masa on TV Diner. I swear you go to every restaurant I see on there. Lucky girl :)

    I love finding suburban spots for brunch! And I have heard amazing things about Masa. That looks like just the kind of dish I would get too. If I didn’t get so full on cornbread! :-P

    My boyfriend and I went to the Boston Masa for dinner at the bar last night, and it was such a disappointment, because I’ve gone there for brunch a couple of times and have LOVED it too. I’m hoping it was just a fluke… we’re going to head back for brunch instead soon, and hopefully my faith in them will be restored!

    I haven’t been to Masa in Woburn but it is a lot closer to me now. I’ll have to check it out. :-) I’m having a relaxing weekend so far. Baking, running, cooking, hiking and hanging out with friends!

    Yes absolutely delicious and its becoming hard for me to stop myself as it’s looking like eggs are appealing to me so that I can eat them.
