That pole signifies one of my favorite places in Kendall Square.
It’s rare at MIT when we’re really ahead, prepared, organized, and clean going into lunch. We prep so much from scratch in the mornings, that we always have a ton to do. But some days we’ll get an easy soup to make. Miso soup takes less than 20 minutes from start to finish. So I have a 1-hour window to get a haircut. I notice early that morning and plan on leaving at 9am, getting a haircut at my barbershop in Kendall, and making it back by 10am.
So next time you’re enjoying a miso soup at the MIT truck, check and see if I’m looking extra fresh.
