Phantom Gourmet: Mystic Station In Malden

MALDEN (CBS) -- If you like burgers, steak tips, Buffalo wings, and beer, then you need to make a stop at Mystic Station.

Located in Downtown Malden, Mystic Station is one of those great neighborhood spots where you can get some fantastic food in the casual dining, a unique craft beer at the comfortable bar, and a friendly smile and warm welcome from owners Nicole and Bryan Palazzolo.

The Mystic Station menu is filled with comfort food, like huge plates of golden beer-battered fish and chips and a towering turkey club.

"It's really good," says Nicole. "We roast our own turkey in house and then we hand carve it it's layered with fresh avocado, bacon, lettuce and tomato and it's on a nice thick cut multigrain bread which we butter and we grill so it's toasty and warm."

Mystic Station's grilled Steak Tips are a top seller, and while they're great on a plate, they're even better as part of one of the best steak and cheese subs you'll ever eat.

"We shave our steak in house out of our steak tip meat that's lightly marinated," says Bryan. "We load it up with cheese, and put it in a beautiful baguette, which I didn't even know what a baguette was until my wife had to tell me. It's the long stick bread!"

While Bryan might not know much about baguettes, he does know plenty about beer--so while Nicole works her magic back in the kitchen, he's more comfortable behind the bar.

"I know good food, I love food, however, I may not know the exact terminology of the good food, so up here is definitely my my forte," says Bryan. "I'd rather be out here in front of customers doing my thing and and making good drinks and hanging out and you know having that friendly atmosphere and making them part of my family."

Watch Phantom Gourmet on Saturdays and Sundays at 10:30 and 11 a.m. on myTV38.
