Brussels waffle with strawberry and whipped cream
There is no need to cross the Atlantic Ocean when the taste of Belgium is only a short walk away. Located at 1154 Massachusetts Ave., Zinneken's serves two types of authentic, freshly-baked Belgian waffles—Liege and Brussels.
To offset an operating budget deficit, Harvard University Dining Services has implemented a dining restriction at Harvard Hillel that will curb the number of non-Jewish students eating at the kosher dining hall.
To celebrate its one-year anniversary, Zinneken’s is giving away free Liege-style waffles from 5 to 10 p.m. this Wednesday. The waffle stock will be limited, so be sure to stop by early to sample this chewy, doughy Belgian delight!

Shabu-shabu with a platter of vegetables and noodles
"I'm too busy" is never a good excuse to skimp on exciting and delicious food escapades. In this new series, explore the culinary scene of Boston and Cambridge with Jane, your Crimson foodie who may be picky, but will still try anything on the plate at least once (except maybe chicken feet). Diners are invited to be the chefs when they order shabu shabu, or Japanese version of hot pot, at Shabu-Ya (http://www.shabuyarestaurant.com). The entrée comes with a choice of protein, a platter of vegetables that includes lettuce, cabbage, corn, tofu, carrots, and mushroom, as well as a choice of udon noodles, clear noodles, or a bowl of rice. Diners dunk in the ingredients into the boiling broth and dip them into special sauce that tastes like soy sauce. Shabu shabu is a fun experience if you have never tried it, but the vegetables at Shabu-Ya were not very fresh and the broth tasted a bit bland.

At the height of lunchtime, it is nearly impossible to snag a seat at Crema Café. The menu of this coffee shop boasts everything from lattes decorated with swirled foam art to delectable cupcakes recently featured on the Food Network's "Cupcake Wars." In addition to drinks and baked goods, Crema Café offers an extensive food menu that includes sandwiches, salads, soups, and quiches.
In what observers surmised was an initiation task for a female final club, two young women wearing the Sablière Society’s signature blue scarves grabbed a newspaper from a vendor of homeless paper Spare Change News and then videotaped themselves on an iPhone trying to sell the paper, according to Harvard Square Homeless Shelter staff members who saw the incident.
