My verdicts on the BEST of Boston 😘😋 after days of eating far too much seafood. Last trip was May 2018 for Celine’s graduation from Berklee! 👩🎓

This wins my award for the BEST Lobster Roll in Boston because of the entire combination. It’s not just about the amount of lobster for me (James Hook has the most in each lobster roll) but the way the roll is put together. They do it with Brioche here and I love it. Didn’t love their clam chowder tho. But all their seafood was super fresh and everything (other than the chowder) was pretty fabulous.

My momma said it was really good. Dave said it supplies the whole Boston area. This place is apparently legit for the fresh, steamed Lobster. Who am I to argue? I didn’t get to try myself, but it seems to be a favourite of everyone else around me! I mean it’s just steamed fresh seafood. If it’s fresh and you don’t oversteam, you can’t botch it!

Love. The. Chowder. Tried so many other places but this place is still by far my favourite. Maybe it’s a bit sentimental - tastes like the clam chowder I used to have as a kid. But Dom voted it in as his favourite in Boston too! So even baby me must have had good taste 😎. There are 3 branches. I loved the service we got near Chinatown. But the ambience by the Harbor is nice. Especially on Thursday nights apparently!!

Something just wonderful about this place that’s always deserves a mention!! Legs of ham hanging from the ceiling, or big wheels of cheese stacked like nobody’s business... and good food cooked with great ingredients...

Decent coffee if you need a fix =). It’s more of a “cafe” - lots of baked goods that are far too big and far too sweet. Only sad point was they are pretty wasteful. They put out plastic cups for people to get water... I had to ask for a real cup and they looked at me like I was a total weirdo for not wanting to add to the plastic pollution problem we have. Lost points in my book for being a very wasteful company, but perhaps if enough people ask for real cups they’ll do something about it.

Breakfast has to be damn good to motivate me to eat in the mornings. I’m usually happy with an orange juice and an otherwise empty belly. But if you insist on breakfast, the recommended spots in this list keep me excited! The memories... read comments because sometimes it’s just a matter of convenience =)
After a bit of rain in the morning, I love walking around in different areas around the quainter parts of the city. I find town too commercialised, but there are such nice little spots cropping up all over, as the “sea turtles” (people who study abroad and bring ideas back) make their way home. The slower relaxed ambience of retirees and quiet helps me take a deep breath and relax. That sense of peace that washes over me is intoxicating and I need more days like that. Happiness. Like this cat.
