Deciding on a last-minute whim, my friend and I headed up to Boston last weekend to visit some friends and enjoy in some delicious food together. Boston is one of my favorite cities with its beautiful architecture, North End and cobblestone streets (just to name a few).
We headed to “The Times” for a nice frothy cold one, a heaping of an appetizer, and to enjoy a great pub atmosphere as we waited for our friend to get out of his fancy shmancy job in the Finance District.
Of course, mini vacations revolve around food so we headed to Elephant & Castle to get some delicious grub while I tried a Fruli Strawberry beer (but don’t have more than one of these sweet suckers). Yum!There were some delicious and unhealthy fries involved. (you must try the sauce)
And some chicken picks per recommendation. I don’t usually have chicken fingers but these were light, crisp and good. We rubbed our full bellies and headed out for a quick drink and for the boys to beat me in darts. (I did shoot myself a bullseye I was pretty proud of)
Day 2 we headed out to the North End of Boston, one of my favorite places. Why you may ask? Because it’s Italian of course. We didn’t head to Giacomo’s but I had to add it because you must go if you have the time. This restaurant is oh so good but you can’t make any reservations! You have to twiddle your thumbs in line like the rest as you look through the windows watching people eat delicious food that makes your mouth water. It is worth the wait if I say so myself. Do sit up at the counter and watch the chefs prepare your food if you can.
Needed a jolt of caffeine we hopped into Pavement Coffee House on Newbury Street.
I tried a flavorful Spanish latte with sweetened and condensed milk. It was a great choice.
Always crowded, if you’re looking for the largest cannoli you’ve ever seen Mike’s Pastry is a must.
My choice? A decadent hazelnut cannoli.
How do you enjoy Boston?
