I would like to thank everyone who helped make my trip to a Boston conference a pleasant chowhound experience. Thanks to the suggestions from this board, I enjoyed many great meals.
I arrived late on Sunday and went to Trader Joe's for some snacks and wine (Barefoot for $3.99). I decided to stay in my room and relax that evening.

Monday, I had a fantastic lunch at Mary Chung's - delicious Hot and Sour Soup and Ma Paw Tou Fu. I loved both dishes (was not hungry enough for the Chicken Velvet Soup, which I wanted to try). The table next to me ordered Suan La Chow Show and gave me some to try, which was great!

On Tuesday, I had a delicious banh mi (tofu) for lunch, which was delicious. I have had many banh mi in my life, but this is the first time I have had one that was served hot. I really enjoyed it and the bread was also very good.

Tuesday evening, I trekked out to Angela's - actually, I went for dinner on my way to the airport. I had a wonderful dinner - a half order of guacamole and chicken mole poblano. The guac was delicious. The mole sauce was very flavourful. The chicken was a little over cooked, but still very good and the sides were very simple but nice (rice and black beans). I did not take any wine or beer with me, but the server told me that they have put in their papers for a liquor license should have it in the next six weeks or so.

I had one meal with colleagues at No Name Restaurant (not my choice). It was okay, not my favourite meal, but kind of what I expected. The scallops were delicious. I also liked the relaxed local atmosphere.

I had many plans to do other things - Gran Gusto, Christina's for ice cream and also cannele from Clear Flour or Canto 6. I also wanted to have a sandwich from Blunch. I just didn't have enough time or meals to try everything. I will have to come back!
Thanks again for your suggestions and for pushing me to get out of the conference for lunch. I walked almost everywhere that I went (the weather was beautiful) and I really enjoyed it.
