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.
