I don’t know about you, but my daily activities almost always revolve around where I’m going to eat. Living in Boston for the past month and a half, there has been no shortage of foodie adventures. When you’re roaming the city with a group of journalists and social media gurus there is lots of food, and of course pictures to go along with it. Below are some of my favorite foodie spots.
Check out Amorino on Newbury for your Instagram worthy flower gelato topped off with a macaroon. I got chocolate and Nutella gelato with a chocolate macaron.
The breakfast grilled cheese at Back Bay Harry’s is always a great choice for brunch.
If you’re in the mood for a burger I highly recommend the Boston Burger Company. The Mac Attack burger was featured on Food Network’s Diners, Drive-Ins and Drives and of course I couldn’t resist ordering one of the #FreakFrappes–chocolate peanut butter banana was delicious!
If you’re in the mood for pancakes, be sure to try The Pour House on Boylston. I ordered the delicious banana caramel pancakes.
The Steak Tacos at Lolita were delicious! Eating at Lolita is truly a one of a kind experience from the dry ice to cleanse your palette to the giant cotton candy at the end of your meal.
If your find yourself in Provincetown The Donut Experiment is a must! This design your own donut shop is the perfect start to your day. Although the decision was tough, I decided on a chocolate frosted donut with a peanut butter drizzle.
The Canteen is also another delicious spot in P-town. Who could resist a fancy peanut butter and jelly sandwich (there was peanut brittle and fresh strawberries on this classic) with an ocean view.
Blunch is another spot that was on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives. This tiny cafe is known for their chocolate chip cookies, and they did not disappoint. I also ordered the Dani Bagel with ham, cheddar cheese and maple aioli on a plain bagel. Blunch had been on my bucket list since I arrived in Boston, mostly due to the super cute name, and it truly lived up to its potential!
If you feel like venturing out to Cambridge on a Tuesday be sure to stop by Honeycomb Creamery for an ice cream taco. The flavor changes every week, I had the pleasure of trying the s’mores taco and it was incredible. Also, the fact that the waffle cone shell didn’t break while eating this amazing ice cream creation was definitely a plus.
The North End is flooded with amazing Italian. We decided to eat at Benevento’s and it was delicious! The fresh gnocchi with vodka sauce was most definitely worth the $3 up charge.
Last, but most certainly not least, the great cannoli debate– Modern Pastry (right) vs. Mike’s Pastry (left). At Modern I ordered a chocolate shell covered in chocolate with chocolate custard and chocolate chips, can you tell I like chocolate? At Mike’s I ordered their chocolate mouse cannoli which was HUGE. They were both incredibly delicious, but Modern Pastry won in my book. Not just because of the chocolate overload, but because ever since I ate it I can’t stop thinking about it. If thats not a sign, I don’t know what is.
