A few good snacks will brighten just about any day – hop over to PAGU to see for yourself. Chef-owner Tracy Chang‘s Mass Ave. Japanese/Spanish restaurant rolls out a special happy hour menu every day from 5:00-6:00pm so you can give yourself something to look forward to (a little culinary incentive to get you through the day). They’ve got signature small plates like Duck Confit Tacos and Tempura Corn as well as pizza by the slice in combos like Taiwanese Sausage, Squid Ink Calamari and Mushroom Romesco. You can pair your nibbles with something from the rotating selection of drink specials or their stellar cocktail list, which features concoctions like the Cuffing Season (Alma de Trabanco vermouth, apple cider, shōchū and Cava). Or, bring a crew and get a pitcher of PAGU Sangria for the table – ooh, or maybe a porron. They save room for walk-ins in the dining room and the patio but you can also make a reservation here to be sure there’s a spot for you.
