Just got back to home from an overnight trip to Boston via the Fungwah NY-Boston chinatown bus. My first meal was a quick lunch in Peach Farm for their oysters with black bean sauce which I ate with a cup of white rice...yum! I then headed-off to my hotel to rest and freshen-up to get ready for dinner. Dinner was in Sage at the North End. Hands down meal winner was the pasta tasting course. Too die for gnocchi and ravioli. The entrees were all good too. We had the duck, tuna and venison. We then headed-out for our much awaited ricotta cannoli tasting and checked-out Mike's, Modern and Maria in that order. Maria's ricotta filling won us over with it's not too rich, definitely not chalky, sweet filling. Modern came in second with it's decent filling that was not sweet enough to my taste and Mike came in last with it's a bit too powdery filling. Lunch the ff. day was a burger deluxe and onion rings at Bartley's in Harvard Square. Never saw such a varied selction of burgers and we were all quite satisfied with our choices. For dinner, we got lucked-out from ECG and ended-up in O Catinho for some good, homey Portuguese food. The calves liver appetizer dish was the distinct winner followed by great Pateis de natas...something that I love and haven't had for ages and hard to come by in NYC (i don't really go to Newark). The perfect end to a short but yummy chowtrip! Thanks to the Boston chowhounds for the tips! I will be back soon ;-)
