Family friend suggested this place when she heard we were in the hunt for some good food. Definitely delivered. Best ramen I’ve yet to have in the states. Wow… Please go. Oh, and make sure to load up the bowl like I did. Those little extras really elevated the dish. Next time I’m back, I’m going again for sure.

On my walkabout of Boston, used my handy Chefs Feed app’s map feature to see what I was nearby. I found myself at The Salty Pig restaurant, but unfortunately upon arrival, did not see the recommended Pâté Sammich on the menu. Found out from the waiter that they change it up every now and then and to expect it back on their menu in the near future. When asked what’s a solid choice outside the recommended option via the never-steered-me-wrong app, he told me The Salty Pig Charcuterie is a solid choice as the Pâté that is found on the Pâté Sammich, is on the charcuterie. Delish!

After a great brunch last time at The General Muir and the want for a night out with Christine (aka Xteeener), thought it’d be a great choice to come back for dinner. I had seen their menu online and really wanted to try their poutine to match it against those found in the Canadian province of Quebec City. I gotta say, it was definitely one of the better versions I’ve had outside of Quebec City. Personally, I found it a bit heavy handed on the salt but overall, it was the food coma inducing poutine I love, with pastrami! The other two appetizers were solid choices too; Dinosaur Kale salad (*insert Jurassic Park theme*) and Potato Pierogi. For entrees, we ordered the Double Burger Stack (did you know: Chef Todd Ginsberg created the delicious ‘Burger Stack’ at Bocado?!) and the skillet crisped trout. Both good but I’ll need to come back and eat them without having had ruined our appetite with the heavy hitting appetizers.

P.S. Apologies to the ever helpful waitress Arabia for having drowned myself in sweet tea throughout the evening. Great server. Attentive, friendly and knowledgeable.

Thanks The General Muir for a great meal and a fun evening~ :)

After eating that lovely breakfast at Farm:Table we proceeded to Swan Oyster Depot to get our seafood fix; some really positive reviews, so I was quite hopeful. Honestly, I’ve heard of them before but it was definitely thanks to Anthony Bourdain’s The Layover that got my excitement going again. They actually open pretty early at 8am (who says you can’t have seafood for breakfast?!) and per the time change from EST/GMT-5 to PST/GMT-8 it was about lunch time for me, so that worked out nicely. Albeit the early start, the line actually got quite long; about a 30-45min wait. Surprising, but not too bad.

As far as the food goes, there is no question that the seafood was fresh but the selection was not to the level I was hoping for; most likely this was due to seasonality. Maybe I just went in with too high of expectations. But what they do have, is all great. The best thing was definitely the Sea urchin. Definitely an advanced foodie type of cuisine as the Sea Urchin’s outer shell was still moving! You have been warned. :)

Definitely need to go back sometime between mid-November and early spring when they have the Dungeness Crab. Oh, important!!! Bring cash, they don’t take credit cards, checks, or allow you to barter with your first born.

Craigie on the Main, Chef Tony Maws

 

On Assignment for Chefs Feed!! :D

This was a great opportunity to meet Chef Tony Maws from Craigie on Main. Was setup with a lucky one to many session where Chef Tony Maws and staff worked hard to get each dish out for me. Shot an array of dishes and each one looked even more mouth watering than the first. Don’t they look absolutely delicious!? Favorite was definitely the sweetbread. What a fabulous dish! Will definitely need to make another trip out to Boston soon to try more of Chef Maws’ cuisine.

Until next time.
