I spent some time in Boston right after college, and it was a blast to re-visit a city that has such a fond place in my memory. Boston is full of history and just as many places to eat and drink in. It even served up the best burger I've had on the show so far! Here's a breakdown of my time in Beantown.
I don't know what was better, Chef Asia Mei or her FOOD!? The place was amazing and oozed proper hospitality. The food was incredible and somehow, Chef Asia made fried chicken that was better than Haberdish and she didn't even use a pressure fryer. I'm going back to Boston just for the amazing experience I had here!
Definitely a dive bar with good food by Chef Nick Gardener. The fact the place was open for 10 years is testament how they've engrained themselves into the fabric of the Cambridge community.
I think I'd have to say that this burger is one of the best bites I've had on the show ever. Also had Patatas Bravas which weren't as great as the burger but an amazing take on Spanish "Fries".
Korean short rib, cucumber salad, Peking duck nachos, Frose. I used to live right near this restaurant. It wasn't opened when I lived in Cambridge but it's right across Phoenix Landing and I f***ing love that the neighborhood that I first experienced as a young alumnus has such great vibes and food now! Love this concept!
Lobster Rolls and Fried Scallops. Funny because I used to have to save up to go eat here when I first moved to Boston! I came back and I'm not a broke ass alumnus and now it seems to taste better! This is the type of place you want to go to when you head to New England. It may not be the classiest place to go but it's a place that YOU HAVE TO VISIT if you come to Boston!
