Alright my fantastic, devoted, and truly wonderful readers–I have been a terrible blogger lately!! But I promise, things are coming back full-force! From finishing my vacation (what a hard life, right?) to catching up on some freelance work, to getting over a cold (which I think caused me to bruise a rib or two from coughing so much!!!), and to well, just life, I have put blogging on the back burner. But, ohhh, how I’ve missed it! So, here continues the series from my travels to the beautiful (and delicious) East Coast!!! (This is part 4 out of 6 of the series. Normal posts will resume in a couple days!)
Our first day in Cambridge, we rode The T out to Boston to visit Quincy Market. Now, before my dearest cousin arranged our itinerary in this quaint city, I had never heard of Quincy Market. Apparently, it’s a place to send all tourists to get some fun souvenirs and fatten them up so they can’t leave! The Market is located inside the Faneuil Hall Marketplace right around the corner from City Hall. With its presence centered between The North Market and The South Market, Quincy Market consists of a long isle entirely comprised of food stands. Crab cakes, gelato, soup, baked goods, pizza, Chinese food, smoothies, lobster rolls, and so much more.
We walked the entire isle about two times before we decided on what we wanted for lunch, and before we even finished our meal we were contemplating what to get next and what day we should come back again. Since we were in Boston, we had to try the clam chowder in a bread bowl. That was my intention anyway. We got to the counter of the Boston Chowda Co., and they made the mistake of allowing me to try a sample of the Lobster Bisque!! So, being a sucker for lobster, I ordered a bowl of that instead (but I did vow to go back and get some clam chowder, which I did later that week!).
Doesn’t that soup look so tasty? Also, I would have to say that one of the biggest treats at The Market was trying a lobster roll. Um, wow! These delicious sandwiches will cost you a pretty penny, but it’s lobster(!), so it was well worth it. I was also very pleased with the amount of lobster in the roll! Thick, hearty slices of meat filled the entire inside of the roll with a creamy sauce and some slices of lettuce. Yumm!
We visited Quincy Market again towards the end of our trip and were just as delighted. The clam chowder was so tasty. We also got the pleasure of finishing the day with one of the most gigantic and mouthwatering Heath Bar cookies I have ever had! Here are some more pictures from Quincy Market. This is only a minor portion of what we saw. I was so impressed with the place!
Stay tuned for tomorrow’s post about the lovely tour at Sam Adams Brewery!
