After landing in Boston & checking into our hotel, Ben & I headed off in search of dinner. I had a night of taking a self guided Food Tour through Boston:

Boston Baked Beans at Durgin Park

Drinks at Bell in Hand (longest continuously operating tavern in the United States)

Clam Chowder & Lobster at Union Oyster Company

Boston Cream Pie at the Omni Parker

We started at the Quincy Market & Faneuil Hall. Once spaces for great orators to speak to the crowds, are now a food mega.

The Italian influence is heavy in Boston with delicious cannoli & Wicked Good cupcakes.

For those not able to make it over to the Boston Commons, there is a replica Cheers Bar to check out. I knew that I wanted to see the real deal though!

Aside from munching on a cannoli, we held out until on the food bingeing until we got to Durgin Park, home of the famous Boston Baked Beans. They didn’t disappoint! They were so good, that we ended up eating at the Durgin Park at the airport before flying out!

After being seated, we were immediately served sweet Northern cornbread as an appetizer. Although I normally make Southern Cornbread, this sweet cake like treat was a fun way to start a meal!

When in Boston, I couldn’t resist a chance to try a Boston Cream Pie martini. It was quite yummy! The graham cracker rim really sent it home!

Finally our famous Boston Baked Beans arrived! They were so yummy! They were sweet & savory at the same time. Yum!

We then moved onto drinks at Bell in Hand, the longest continuously operating tavern in the United States. It has been modernized on the inside, but still holds that historic charm.

I opted yet again for a Boston Cream Pie drink, while Ben went more traditional with the Bostonian!

After visiting Bell in Hand, we got dinner at the oldest restaurant in America, called Union Oyster Company. It was our favorite meal of the trip. We learned how to eat lobster from our truly Boston native waitress and savored every bite of the yummy clam chowder.

Food Tour of Boston | www.sweetteasweetie.com We started with the classic New England Clam Chowder. How can you not, when you are in New England? Food Tour of Boston | www.sweetteasweetie.com

Let me pause for a moment on this clam chowder….its literally the best I’ve ever had. Yes, I know that sounds like heresy to SF’s die hard Boudin fans, but this was just perfection. The clams didn’t have that chewy quality, it was nicely spiced, and deliciously creamy. I like it so much that I insisted we come back to get a big bowl of it before leaving town. Next time I get a chance to stop in Boston, this will be my first stop!

Check back for next week’s Wanderlust Wednesday when we explore Downtown Boston & try the Boston Cream Pie from its origin, the Omni Parker Hotel.
