Eating & Drinking Tips (6)

the flavor as still sweet.....

Favorite thing Don't forget to sample the local brews!

Fondest memory We drove to the local T-stop and took the subway into town. I wasn’t feeling well, with some sort of stomach virus resulting from the pulled pork, too much pumpkin or a deadly combination of both. I was weak and lackluster and though we walked around and tried to enjoy ourselves, it was just not to be. Doreen was too full of impressions to truly soak it all in and with a sick boyfriend, she was the one to suggest leaving early. Once in the car, I got feverish and was happy to have her as my pilot. I helped get her on the Interstate back to New Jersey and nodded out in a pool of sweat. It wasn’t the end of the trip nor the dream visit to Boston that I had hoped for but that didn’t dampen our spirit too much. When a trip is as magical as the one we had just had, a sour ending does not contaminate the overall flavor. And that nice taste was still too sweet on our lips to do anything but make us smile.

Hard Rock Cafe

Favorite thing One of the original restaurants of this chain of rock and roll memorabilia strewn eating establishments. A Hard Rock Cafe is a Hard Rock Cafe anyplace you go; its known for its uniformity. So I wouldn't recommend eating here, unless you really, really take comfort in uninspiring consistency when it comes to food. But its hard not to notice the familiar logo of this place which stands out among the old brick buildings of downtown Boston.

Favorite thing Lobsters is a Way of Life in Maine and the New England. Actually, not all lobster are caught in Maine as the coastline of New England stretches up to New Hampshire and you can still find humongous lobsters there! New England is known as the Lobster Capital of the United States and you would not want to leave boston without eating the famed New England Lobsters whether broiled, steamed, in a lobster salad or sandwhich and any variations therein. fresh lobsters at the famous lobster restaurants in boston like Legal Seafoods, No Name Restaurant, Philipps Oysterhouse and more sell them at $ 21.99 to 26.99 a pound (including cooking charge) while lobster sandwiches are from $ 11.99 to $ 14.99 per order.

Didi you know that in the 1800's lobster was a poor mans food and was only fed to the prisoners in New England!

Fondest memory lobster overload!

Eat some seafood! Eat more...

Favorite thing Eat some seafood! Eat more seafood!!!

Go to Chinatown for some traditional Chinese food.

See the historical sites. There is so much history in Boston that one can get overwhelmed. Take in all you can and plan on going back for more.

Fondest memory Too many to name.

Clam Chowda (Clam Chowder)

Favorite thing yes, you saw it right! bostonians call clam chowder as "clam chowda" with their bostonian accent. this is the second most popular food in New England!

Clam Chowder is more popular in the west coast like in San Francisco as it is the number one tourist city in America but It started in the United States in the Boston Area in the 1800's and became popular also in the west coast and they use the term "quahog" for it (remember Family guy don't you!). Both Styles, New England and Manhattan style are available here in boston but easily the cream based New England Style sells more then the Tomato Based Manhattan Style.

you can buy them everywhere and they go for about $ 5.99 to $ 7.99 for a pint (big cup).

Fondest memory clam chowda galore!
