Boston Food Guide

My apologies for the lack of updates. I’ve been extremely busy these few weeks.

This would be my last post for Boston. This entry is to keep up with my practice of having a food entry for my travel entries.

Quincy Market

This place is excellent for a quick and cheap bite. The market has numerous outlets with different types of food here. However, food is mediocre.

Clamp chowder is quite common.

Every morning I’ll come here for breakfast and each time I come here, I’ll try a different store.

Doghouse is one of the better ones and they serve hots dogs and sausages. Boston Barker Deluxe is quite awesome.

Faneuil Hall

Opposite Quincy Market lies Faneuil Hall. Food stalls are located at the ground level. Red Barn Coffee Roasters is highly recommended by a lot websites.

It’s quite good and I think it’s on par with Starbucks coffee. My personal favourite would be their cafe latte 😀


Union Oyster House

This place gotta be the highlight of Boston food. It is just a street away from Quincy Market and Faneuil Hall. It claims to be the oldest restaurant in Boston and the oldest restaurant in continuous service in the U.S. Its doors have been open to diners since 1826. You can read about their history here.

Due to its popularity and long history. famous patrons such as Daniel Webster and Kennedy Family were regulars here. There is also booth dedicated to JFK.

The meal here starts off with some free cornbread as appetizer. I must warn that this place is a little bit pricey hence check the price before you order.

We ordered lobster and oysters. I’m not a big fan of oysters as it grosses me out. However, the oysters here were fine. Lobster on the other hand was good. The way they served it reminded me of a dead cockroach.

For dessert, do order the Boston Cream Pie. It was awesome.

Some patrons had posted negative comments about this place. They complained about their price and lousy service. My experience there was good. I think it’s worth the money.

Boston – Part I

After spending 4 days in NYC, I finally arrived in Boston to do what I was supposed to do in the United States. I was there a day early hence I had a little time to roam around the place before my 5-day conference. I knew that I wouldn’t have chance to roam around Boston during my conference. A minute rest is a minute wasted in such conference. If my body could function non stop, I would love to be in the conference non stop!

I stayed in Hilton Hotel which is nearby the well known Quincy Market and Faneuil Hall. Almost every morning my colleagues and I will walk to the market for breakfast. These two buildings are now tourist attractions and primarily serve food and beverages.

In Quincy Market , there is a foyer where patrons can sit down to have their meal.

Clamp chowder is popular in Boston. However, Quincy Market only serves mediocre clam chowder.

There is also a Cheers pub. If you are born before the 90s, you will probably remember the US Sitcom Cheers. Quincy Market hosts a replica of the bar. The actual bar is located at Beacon Hill, not too far away from Quincy Market.

The Old State House Museum is a street away from Faneuil Hall. This is claimed to be the oldest surviving public building in Boston. Build in the 1700s, this building is surrounded by skyscrapers.

Just a few steps away, there is a small cobblestone ring to commemorate the Boston Massacre

Boston: Short Update

Hello people!

It’s been a hectic conference in Boston. Been running around like a headless chicken for the past few days. I had meetings after meetings in the morning until the evening and receptions after receptions at night. But its not so bad this time, I have sufficient rest everyday.

Food is good here in Boston. Been eating at Quincy Market almost everyday. Food is cheap and good there.

I also went to this place called King Fish Hall. They serve awesome seafood platter there.

I also had dinners with boss’s family friend. The daughter drew a picture of me.

Will be leaving US on the 28th. More updates then!
