Eggs Benedict

How can you say “no” to eggs benedict on a breakfast menu? I remember as a kid, I actually did not like them, but I will confess that I love them now! Eggs benedict was something my dad ordered for breakfast during our travels (well, actually he orders waffles, french toast, soft sunny side up,…

Burger extravaganza

Having spent my four years of college in Boston, just around a week ago, my excitement for Marathon Monday got me energized until I woke up the next morning in Tokyo with my friend’s text that said:”what is going on in boston…” Half asleep, I had no idea what had happened but quickly searched “Boston”…

New Dong Khanh bubble tea, Boston, MA

Bubble tea was not on my childhood favorite list simply because it was not introduced to me until I went to college. It’s so prevalent now, at least around me. I think bubble tea was introduced to me my first semester in college, and when I went back to Japan for winter break, I found…

Georgetown Cupcake, Boston, MA

Their opening weekend, the line was SO long outside Georgetown Cupcake, their Boston location. I asked and the line was a two hour wait on their first day when I passed past noon. Majority of the people in line were female, but I spotted couple of men who I assume were dragged by their girlfriends…

Congratulations to Berryline for being the 2010, 2011, 2012 Award Winner of BEST FroYo on the Boston A List! I knew it would win another one this year! Check it out here! I love Berryline. During the early summer days when I was still in Boston, I probably went there twice per week on average…

Bon Me food truck

If you walk around in Boston, you would definitely find food trucks parked on the side of the street. Note that these trucks are not only for office workers grabbing their quick lunch and college students feeding themselves under a budget, but it’s catered to the public even at dinner time and on the weekends….

The Paramount, Boston, MA

My friends and I drove to Cape Cod to watch the summer sunrise in early June. After our long trip for sunrise that started at 1AM and ended back in Boston at 8AM with only few Pocky packets with us, we were sure ready for a good breakfast. The Paramount is famous for their neighborhood…

Flour Bakery+Cafe

… next time from this blog post entry in April 2011 finally came back as an entry! Flour Bakery + Cafe has undoubtedly become one of my favorite places to go in Boston. Though the cafe has been around since 2000, I had not known about it until their third cafe opened in Cambridge on Mass Ave,…

Espresso Love, Boston, MA

I was amazed. I find a hard time finding sandwiches that have the perfect ratio of bread to filling, and one with balance in taste, but I found it! Espresso Love’s Chicken Avo BLT won my prize. Though the menu writes that the sandwich is made with toasted sour dough, I got it with toasted…

Crumbs Bake Shop, Boston, MA

The famous Crumbs Bake Shop known for its cupcakes arrived to Boston in Spring 2012. So excited yet I hadn’t brought myself there, but my friend who made a day trip to New York brought two cupcakes back for me! My first Crumbs experience. The cupcakes are large. And we all know that cupcakes are…

The Daily Catch, Boston MA, Round 2

Just about a month ago, I went to the Daily Catch in North End, Boston (see!). I had known that their black pasta was their homemade special and was popular, but I didn’t get to try it. But this time, I knew what to order with my friend. Black pasta is made of squid ink….

Zo Gyros

Zo Boston, a contemporary Greek cuisine restaurant, has two locations near the Government Center Station in Boston, right in the middle of the office neighborhood. Really good for a speedy lunch for people working under time pressure. But I visited as a normal Friday-off college student with my boyfriend who occasionally grabs a quick bite…
