Like I said previously, Boston was full of good eating and I wanted to put together a post of the bits and pieces I had throughout the week and they’re listed here in no particular order.

One afternoon, I skipped the conference lunch and headed off looking for my own, better one. I came across a series of food trucks near Kendall Square in Cambridge and the name of one caught my eye – I’d heard good things about the Clover Food Truck. They have a few trucks and even a few proper restaurants now.

It’s only at this truck though that you can get the Brussels Sprout – a sandwich of fried brussels sprouts, cheese, pickled red cabbage, hazelnuts and a garlic sauce. It was fantastic – I love fried Brussels sprouts and making them the centrepiece of a sandwich is genius.

One night we headed down to The Barking Crab for more seafood. And more seafood we had! There was about a 20 minute wait since we didn’t have a reservation for the loud, bustling restaurant but we got a big table, necessary for our platters of crab legs and lobster…

Junior: 1lb. Snow Crab Legs & 1.25 lb. Lobster

…and our lobster roll.

Our table was full! The Barking Crab has its critics but we all had a great time with great food. I really need more crab legs in my life.

I took the opportunity to try the Bonchon on the Harvard campus while I was taking a look around. This is a Korean chain of restaurants that are famous for their Korean fried chicken.

I wasn’t able to order from their lunch menu (only available on weekdays) so had to make do with the a la carte menu (which was also full of other classic Korean dishes). I ordered the smallest possible order of wings in their famous hot sauce and a side order of rice; the wings came with pickled radish (fine) and coleslaw (watch out for the garlic!).

Bonchon Chicken and Sides

The wings were outstanding – the skin of the chicken was shatteringly crisp, even towards the end of the meal and there was a pleasing heat in the sauce that made my lips tingle happily. Please come to London, Bonchon!

For most of the week, I stayed at a hotel a stone’s throw from Toscanini’s Ice Cream in Cambridge. The New York Times calls their ice creams the best in the world but I’m more content with calling them the best in Boston (sorry, the gelati in Italy wins hands down!). Coffee Hydrox and Creamsicle were both very very rich – their full cream ice cream is some seriously heavy stuff. The flavours were good though not mindblowing.

I did better after I got recommendations on Instagram – this is their B3 – brown butter, brown sugar and brownies. I also heard good things about their burnt caramel but never got around to trying it.

Tonight's Toscanini ice cream was the B3. Brown butter, brown sugar and brownies. Thanks for the rec, @heyreese !!

I had one day off in Boston and, this being by first time in the city, used it to walk along the Freedom Trail. I diverted a bit on Hanover Street to get myself to Mike’s Pastry for one of their famous cannoli. It’s not difficult to find – just go in the opposite direction of the happy looking people clutching bakery boxes from the shop.

Espresso Cannoli

I battled my way through the indecisive crowd and got myself an espresso cannolo. The fried pastry was wonderfully crunchy even when filled with the cream (the filling is much lighter in texture than the Sicilian ones I’ve had in the past). It’s definitely worth the detour.

Finally, I can’t finish the series on Boston without mentioning Legal Sea Foods. We went to the branch at Kendall Square (Cambridge) for a work dinner on our first night there and the selection of starters we split first really shone compared to the mains – here were their excellent New England fried clams. Or maybe I just filled up on the starters and didn’t have a chance to properly appreciate my crab cake. Hmm.

New England Fried Clams

I even found time to fit in a final cup of their fantastic clam chowder at a branch at Logan International Airport (there’s a Legal Sea Foods at every terminal, I believe). It was a good end to the trip.

And that’s it for Boston (and Cambridge)! As is usual, all my photos from Boston (and photos from my walk along the Freedom Trail) can be seen in this Flickr album.

I wanted to treat myself on my last night in Boston and, from what I could see online, Craigie on Main in Cambridge was exactly what I was looking for – serving modern cuisine made from local ingredients. With a James Beard Award winning chef (Tony Maws) at the helm and with other numerous awards, it was certainly going to be good; I booked myself in for a solo dinner on a Friday night. When I arrived that evening, the place was packed, again a consequence of that ridiculously busy weekend, but the hostess, seeing that I was by myself, did her best to seat me as soon as possible (and at a lovely window seat overlooking the entire restaurant too). Service overall was excellent – my waitress had already picked up on the fact that I was from out of town (the mobile phone number for my booking gave that away).

A number of options were available in the evenings, three courses of your choice, a 6-course tasting menu and an 8-course tasting menu. It was the 6-course tasting menu ($98) for me. Bread and butter were promptly set before me and I tried my best not to fill up on it!

Bread and Butter

The meal started with an amuse of green tomato gazpacho with golden raisins and peekytoe crab. I loved the slight tang of this cold soup and the raisins and crab added a good balancing sweetness to it. I never would have thought of eating green tomatoes in this way.

Green Tomato Gazpacho

The first of the tasting menu’s six courses was sashimi of madai with heirloom tomatoes, a confit tomato and crispy quinoa. I enjoyed this light start and could see that this was going to be a good meal. Actually, all the tasting menu dishes surprised me that night as I had originally expected perhaps smaller versions of the dishes on the a la carte. But this wasn’t the case – everything was original.

Sashimi of Madai

Another fish dish came next – slow cooked swordfish and shrimp in lobster sauce with seabeans and chorizo. The textures of the seafood were incredible, both turning out completely differently after slow cooking – the meaty swordfish and the silky shrimp.

Slow Cooked Swordfish and Shrimp

I loved the handmade trofiette pasta with sweetbreads and mushrooms that came next. The mushroom sauce coating the pasta was incredibly rich and the fried sweetbreads made it all even richer. Heaven.

Handmade Trofiette Pasta with Sweetbreads and Mushrooms

For the meat course, I was surprised to be presented with lamb – it’s not a meat I come across very often in North America. Here was lamb two ways – confit belly and leg (I think?) served with couscous, green tomato puree and shishito peppers. And it really was some of the best lamb I’d had all year.

Lamb Two Ways - Confit Belly and Leg

I was then presented with the first of my sweets: a Riesling sabayon with local wild blueberries and raspberries. While this was tasty, I did think the portion size was a bit mean. And with the second dessert being light and fruity, I did wish that this was something richer.

Riesling Sabayon

The light and fruity second dessert was a melon sherbet terrine with compressed spiced melon and mint meringue. This was a lovely end to the meal – very refreshing.

Melon Sherbet Terrine

Overall, it was a great meal and a great end to the trip. By the way, I hear they also serve an excellent brunch (I had originally planned a brunch there but the schedule didn’t allow for it).

You can’t go to Boston and not have seafood and one of the hottest places in the city to dine on seafood is the highly lauded Island Creek Oyster Bar and I managed to get a table for 5 of us at 9:30pm one night. Island Creek Oysters is still a working oyster farm today and we even had some of their oysters at Myers+Chang – this restaurant, Island Creek Oyster Bar, brought the farmer even closer to the diner.

Despite our making a booking though, we had to wait for almost an hour for our table as the restaurant ended up with more people than it could handle. (Actually, this seemed to be the case at all of Boston’s restaurants that weekend – there just seemed to be a huge influx of tourists in the city.) And we weren’t the only ones – we were all crowded at the entrance and the front of house did their best to calm the screamers (I’m not joking – there were some nutjobs waiting for a table too). When we were finally seated, we could see that the restaurant was larger than expected, curving round to the side, and that it looked great. And yeah, it was packed.

We ordered quite a few things and shared them all. We started with their Clam Chowder, made with hand-dug clams and house-cured bacon and a little buttermilk biscuit on top. The restaurant was kind enough to split two orders into five bowls for us, removing any need to figure out how to share it without swapping germs. Creamy and good even if the very strong bacon flavour surprised me at first.

Clam Chowder

A side order of a full-sized buttermilk biscuit was utterly gorgeous. American-style biscuits are one thing I really miss here in London and this one was just perfect, all tender and flaky and glazed with honey.

Buttermilk Biscuit

Fried Clams were insanely good – actually, all the fried seafood I had in Boston was excellent.

Fried Clams

The clams came with some fries but we ordered another side of them just in case we didn’t have enough food. It turns out we had enough food and really didn’t need these fries, however excellent they were.

Hand-cut Fries

I’d heard a lot about the restaurant’s Ethel’s Lobster Roll and we ordered two to split. They were delicious, each was overflowing with lobster pieces just held together by the mayo dressing. Forgive me, but I would have preferred fries to the potato chips (crisps) on the side but that’s just my preference.

Ethel's Lobster Roll

Another favourite of mine was Mrs Bennett’s Seafood Casserole. This was a very generous mixture of seafood cooked with seafood stock, cream and a bit of tomato paste amongst other nice things and topped with crushed crackers. It was lush and we kept finding lots of things including a small lobster tail that we split between us. I need to learn how to recreate this.

Mrs Bennett's Seafood Casserole

A colleague’s order of Herb Crusted Gloucester Cod was fine but not as exciting to me as all the other treats. Still, it was a unique to me combination of beans, yellow beans, chorizo and hot peppers underneath that large chunk of cod.

Herb Crusted Gloucester Cod

Orders from the raw bar took the longest as they were clearly getting hammered by the late night crowd. Fluke Crudo were slices of raw fluke marinated with orange, lime and sesame and there was a bit of chilli in there for spice too.

Fluke Crudo

A couple of us got oysters – these Chatham oysters were lovely and meaty (I prefer the flat meaty kinds to the large plump creamy types). I’ll never understand the need for cocktail sauce on an oyster though.

Chatham Oysters

I felt like exploding after that meal – there really was no space for dessert. I wish I’d left a little space for their peach cobbler but we were having trouble keeping our eyes open too after the long day (yeah, everything after this was a bit of a blur). Actually, I wish I could have tried everything on their menu.

If you’re curious, I think it worked out to about $45 per person. It’s a really fun, buzzing restaurant that I certainly highly recommend. Bookings are a must.

I had been Googling for places to eat in Boston and I gotta say, Boston is one major foodie city. I was there with colleagues for work and in just one week, I managed to eat very very well and very very easily (I made bookings for almost everything only 1-2 days prior). High on my list was Myers+Chang, a restaurant owned by Christopher Myers and Joanne Chang (the latter is also the pastry chef and owner of the very popular Flour Bakery) featuring an Asian fusion menu. I was intrigued. And on Mondays and Tuesdays, they have a Cheap Date Night offer – set menus for two for $45. Budget menu? Excellent! Five colleagues and I were game.

The place (in South Boston) is a bit of a walk from the closest metro station and it being Monday night, the streets were empty – a huge contrast from the hip hop music blasting through the packed restaurant. Between the six of us, we ordered one of each of the three available Cheap Date Night menus. Everything came out at once, necessitating the addition of another table, but I’ll break them down here.

The “Bro Date”

Their Green Papaya Slaw, chilis, peanuts, fish sauce had a good chilli heat that was unexpected. Though it’s “fusion” cuisine, the seasonings haven’t been dumbed down.

Green Papaya Slaw

We had no idea what to expect with the Crispy Arctic Char Roll, nori, hot Chinese mustard but what arrived was fantastic. It’s a whole piece of arctic char wrapped in a spring roll wrapper and fried – gorgeous.

Crispy Arctic Char Roll

Of course, the Grilled Pork Belly Porchetta, shiitake, black vinegar, soft egg was one of my favourites! You can’t go wrong with tender pork belly and a soft boiled egg!

Grilled Pork Belly Porchetta

Spicy Silky Tofu, peppered pork, scallions, kimchee was pretty good, though perhaps lacking in spice.

Spicy Silky Tofu

The “Girls Night Out”

The Fresh Rolls, herbs, lettuce, tofu, chili peanut sauce were very much like the Vietnamese summer rolls.

Fresh Rolls

I love anything to do with roasted or fried cauliflower so the Sweet and Sour Cauliflower Bites, pickled shallots, fresh mint, toasted rice was right up my street.

Sweet and Sour Cauliflower Bites

A particular favourite of the table was the Kale and Sungold Salad, Korean chili vinaigrette, crispy shallots. Kale salad! I mean, really! It’s excellent!

Kale and Sungold Salad

The only slight dud in this menu was the Black Pepper Shanghai Noodles, tofu, shiitakes, peanuts, cilantro which I found a bit dull. Oh well, they’re fine as a filler-upper but I think there are other more exciting-sounding noodle or rice dishes on their regular dinner menu that might work here.

Black Pepper Shanghai Noodles

The “It’s Complicated”

Their Island Creek Oysters, yuzu snow were utterly fantastic – very fresh and set off with the slightly sweet and highly aromatic yuzu snow.

Island Creek Oysters

These grilled Peel and Eat Szechuan Shrimp, caramelized lemon, mouth numbing pepper were also excellent, with a kind of fusion Sichuan sambal thing going on on top.

Peel and Eat Szechuan Shrimp

I also enjoyed the Stuffed Rainbow Trout with Coconut Rice, tomato ginger jam, Penang spice – why haven’t I paired rainbow trout with sambal? It’s fantastic!

Stuffed Rainbow Trout with Coconut Rice

The Hakka Eggplant was very good, being all soft and silky, but the seasoning on it seemed a bit muted to me.

Hakka Eggplant

For six, this was just the right amount of food, leaving a little space for dessert (I was looking forward to trying Joanne Chang’s creations). It was a little difficult to split some of the items and I reckon it’s easier to split things between four rather than six. It’s clear though that these Date Night menus are well designed for two.

A Silky Chocolate Mousse, black and white sesame brittle, tamarind caramel was certainly very rich and very popular with our table.

Silky Chocolate Mousse

The Frozen Vanilla Bean Parfait, fresh orange granita was a cute play on the orange creamsicles I grew up with. And it was certainly superior to the creamsicles I grew up with.

Frozen Vanilla Bean Parfait

My favourite was the Lemon-Ginger Mousse Coupe, homemade fortune cookie and yes, there was a message inside the fortune cookie! I normally hate cheap fortune cookies but this homemade version, with lots of ginger in the batter, was outstanding, all buttery and crisp.

Lemon-Ginger Mousse Coupe

This is the kind of food I love – it may not be entirely “authentically” Asian but it tastes good and that’s what matters. I’m just upset I never had a chance to eat off their a la carte menu! There are so many things on their menu I want to eat: Korean bbq sloppy joe, fried chicken and ginger waffle, beef and broccoli chow fun…

Anyway, reservations are imperative for Cheap Date Nights.

We didn’t have much free time in Orlando but on the one free day that we had, we bought tickets to Universal Studios Islands of Adventure mainly to see The Wizarding World of Harry Potter. We were there as soon as it opened and we and a sea of excited Potter fans raced over to that section of the theme park to avoid the queues. That approach paid off as we were able explore Hogwarts to our hearts’ content that morning and ride all the rides (I, the scaredy cat, skipped the Dragon Challenge!) on a relatively empty stomach.

Hogwarts

Hogsmeade was recreated beautifully but it did feel a bit odd to experience a snow covered town when it was hot and sunny out.

Hogsmeade

We didn’t eat at the Three Broomsticks (we lunched in Mythos at The Lost Continent instead) but we had to sample butterbeer, of course, purchased at one of the street carts. We both opted for the collector’s stein; mine now sits on my desk at work.

Butterbeer

I was quite surprised to see that the frothy topping of the butterbeer was dispensed separately to the main body of the drink. My first taste was just of that topping and it tasted like a very sweet vanilla ice cream. That creamy topping combined with the fizzy drink produced masses of froth, similar to that on ice cream floats. The soda itself wasn’t very sweet, balancing that of the froth. Altogether it tasted a bit like cream soda crossed with butterscoth; I loved it.

ETA: I didn’t make it clear but this butterbeer is a non-alcoholic beverage.

We actually flew back to a real snowy London that night, a bit of a shock after sunny Florida. It was a very short trip to Orlando but overall a pleasant one. All my Orlando photos can be seen in this Flickr photoset.

It turned out that my conference in Orlando earlier this month wasn’t actually in Orlando proper but about a half hour drive away from downtown in Buena Vista, close to many of the theme parks. There wasn’t much around our hotel and everything close to the conference hotel (a resort) was overpriced and mediocre. We had to take taxis to get anywhere decent.

We struck out the first night at a restaurant close to the hotel, Landry’s Seafood, where portions were overly generous and most of the seafood came with superfluous toppings consisting of butter, cream, and more seafood.

My “starter” of crispy onion strings and jalapeños came out looking ridiculously bigger than pictured on the menu. My colleague (R) and I struggled to finish even a quarter of that pile.

Crispy Onion Strings and Jalapeños

My combination plate of fish (topped with a cream sauce, fried mushrooms and crab meat), devilled crab (a crab shell filled with a generic crab mixture) and shrimp 3-ways (grilled, fried in garlic butter on toast and um…. wrapped in that generic crab micture) was insane. While everything was certainly fresh, it was all very over the top and at the same time, all very dull. I can’t say I was terribly surprised though – it was very clearly one of those quantity over quality places one tends to find in this kind of vacation area.

We did much better the second night. I’ve been a big fan of Cuban food since I first tried it in Miami a number of years ago and I was glad to find a Cuban restaurant, Havana’s Cafe, not too far from our hotel (not too far means not too expensive in a taxi – walking around here was near impossible). It’s a plain little place, no frills, but we didn’t mind. We skipped starters and went directly to mains. R’s Camaguey was a mixed grill of skirt steak, spiced chicken and pork chunks, all served with white rice, black beans and maduros (fried sweet plantains).

Camaguey

My Montuno Havanero was a combination of fried pork chunks, congri (rice and beans), maduros, cassava and a Cuban tamale. It was all so so delicious and loathe as I am to use this adjective, it was all good honest cooking. Service too was very friendly.

Montuno Havanero

We actually had a bit of room for a dessert and R and I split a tres leches cake – three milks. Wow – this sponge cake was just amazing, all thoroughly soaked in a creamy caramel sauce that was indeed made of three types of milk (Wikipedia says evaporated milk, condensed milk and heavy cream). It tasted like the caramel of a flan but with the creaminess of the milk and the texture of wet cake – that description doesn’t sound great but it was wonderful.

We had no idea where to go the third night and with instructions to find a seafood restaurant, we started asking the locals at our conference. We went with the advice of our sports-loving security guard (ok, she wasn’t our security guard but we loved chatting with her. She taught me about pickleball.) who suggested her favourite restaurant in Orlando – Sunset Sam’s at the Gaylord Palms. The Gaylord Palms?! Turns out it’s yet another resort hotel but possibly the most fancy pants resort hotel in the area. The centre of the resort, bordered by the hotel buildings, is covered in a big glass dome and within that dome are three separate regions mimicking those in Florida. In the “Everglades” were a few reptile tanks; at the Gator Pond, yup, alligators!

Gator!

Sunset Sam’s was located at the far end of the dome where there was a huge pond with giant fish. Sam’s was on a ship! We dined on that ship.

Sunset Sam's

My colleagues started with mussels (disappointing) and a prawn cocktail (spicier than expected but good). I think I had the winner with tempura oysters with a mango basil salsa. The tempura batter was a little thicker than it should have been but the dish was still quite tasty.

Tempura Oysters

For mains, my jumbo lump crab cakes with spinach and arugula salad, guava mustard vinaigrette and tropical fruit relish was actually quite delicious though visually intimidating. Luckily, that giant pile was all just leaves.

Jumbo Lump Crab Cakes

Our dessert of a key lime tart (split three ways) wasn’t very good though. Overall, the experience was all a bit kitsch but it was a bit of fun. The food may not have been the best we had on the trip but it was still miles above that from Landry’s Seafood.

For our final night in Orlando (well, Buena Vista), we pushed the boat out and went to Charley’s Steakhouse, a well respected steakhouse chain in Florida. Well, R had already been his first night in Orlando and had been hoping to return again and I sure didn’t mind a steak. Off we went.

Just in case you didn’t know what they served, there was a display of almost everything available right at the entrance. Those cakes were life-sized. And can you see the lobster tails on the bottom left? They were ginormous.

The Visual Menu

There were printed menus, of course, but the weights of all the steaks were in ounces and I had no idea how to picture an ounce. Not to worry, to help you order, the waiters come around with a tray of each of the raw steaks and a flashlight to help with the presentation. I skipped the first course (my colleagues did not) and went for the 24oz (680g) bone-in USDA Prime Porter House steak, grilled on an open pit. The waiter kindly served me my side salad alongside my colleague’s starters.

My steak was pretty hefty with a generous portion of melt-in-the-mouth fillet steak on one side of the T-bone and a flavourful strip steak on the other. Despite its size, it went down surprisingly easily.

My 24oz Porterhouse Steak

No need for menus again after as the waiter came around again, this time with a tray of each of their desserts. I filled the leftover space in my stomach with a shared slice of Turtle cheesecake (caramel, chocolate and nuts); their cheesecakes were all a manageable size, unlike their humongous layer cakes. It was excellent, just as you imagine a calorific slice of fatty, cheesy goodness to be.

What a mixed bag it all was. It felt all too easy to eat badly in Buena Vista but with a bit of looking and asking, one can do alright. I think we did.

Alright, this is the final post on New York! To sum up the trip, I had a fabulous time and ate like a queen, even when eating cheaply!

One afternoon, before a solo trip to the Met, I stopped in at Gray’s Papaya and ordered their Recession Special ($3.50): two hotdogs, one with sauerkraut, one with onions, and a papaya drink. Yummy! I do love a good hot dog and these beefy ones really hit the spot that day. The papaya drink was only so-so but that’s probably just me (I recently also tried some papaya juice and I didn’t like it. I prefer to just eat the fruit.).

Gray's Papaya Hot Dogs

Another morning, we headed for East Houston and ended up at Yonah Schimmel’s Knish Bakery. As a first-time knish eater, the man there recommended a spinach knish ($3.00) and heated one up for me (Mirna had the same). He handed over our knishes in small white paper bags – it must have weighed at least half a pound and was the size of both of my fists combined!

A Spinach Knish

For other knish newbies, a knish is a ball of seasoned mashed potatoes wrapped in a layer of pastry and baked. It’s heavy and starchy and carby and delicious, especially with lots of mustard!

Later that same day, we were in Chinatown and I searched for one of the cheap dumpling joints I’d heard so much about. We found Tasty Dumpling where 5 pork and chive dumplings can be had for only $1.25. I poured on some black vinegar and some spicy chili vinegar and then took them, along with a bottle of fresh soya bean milk, to the park opposite, where lots of Chinese men play chess!

Pork and Chive Dumplings

Dumpling Innards

The skins may have been a little thick but they were pleasantly chewy and the filling was tasty. Cheap dumplings can’t be beat!

The last notable eat was General Tso’s Chicken eaten at a cheap Chinese restaurant connected to our hotel. It was a combination plate with pork fried rice and an egg roll all for under $7.

General Tso's Chicken

Gosh, have you ever seen fried rice that’s that yellow?! The accompanying rice and egg roll were nothing to shout about but General Tso, what lovely chicken you make! Deep fried battered chicken tossed in a sweet and sour and spicy sauce – delicious and oh so not good for us! General Tso’s chicken is available at just about any Chinese restaurant in the States so I won’t provide the address of this one!

I had such fun in New York – I’m definitely going to plan a trip back in the future! To see all my New York photos (including the non-food ones!), c’mon over to my New York Flickr photoset.
