I’ve been back from Boston for a week now and my heart is still desperately wishing it was still there…along with the rest of my body! Between lobster rolls, chowdah, creme pies & street cookies – I couldn’t feel more at home anywhere else. It also doesn’t help that it’s so easy to walk it off when exploring the city!
Although I did go back to one of my favorite restaurants, Union Oyster House, I did try some new activities and new eats!
I started out my first day in the city by going straight to the Boston Public Gardens and sitting in the grass, appreciating the perfect weather and soaking in the sound of duck feet on the grass beside me.
When the breeze was completely soaked into my soul, I walked a couple of blocks to Flour Bakery + Cafe. I wasn’t too familiar with this bakery, but when I read they had a 7-TIERED BOSTON CREME PIE, I had to try it! With the chocolate (literally) dripping down the side, I scarfed it down in maybe three-minutes flat.
I walked back to the gah-den before getting in my car and driving down to Union Oyster House. I ordered a half-dozen of oysters, some clam chowder & a glass of Riesling. As always, it didn’t disappoint and I headed to the hotel with a full stomach and content heart.
The morning started out with a quick-trip to Keurig for a few meetings but quickly picked up by noon.
I ate lunch at the Salty Dog and knew I’d be remiss if I didn’t have a lobster roll. I ate the lobster sandwich with an appetizer of crab cakes and I so recommend both! They were the perfect balance of seasoning and sea and I devoured it all. The lobster was also thick as hell and super meaty.
After going through The Boston Public Market & the Quincy Market, my mom (who came up for the day) and I walked down to the harbor and got some cookies at The Cookie Monstah before reminiscing on the Freedom Trail and enjoying a Coke as we walked.
I mean, could we get any more American?
In a whirlwind a trip, it left me wanting more and there’s still so much I haven’t done in my favorite American city! I am itching to go back and August can’t get here soon enough!! If only the Red Sox had been in town…
