I came to Boston, really excited to try food from this city. After tring some seemingliy reliable recommendations, I have been dissapointed over and over again.
So far I have tried:
Redbones: the ribs were fine but nothing special
Midwest Grill:meat was bland and again nothing special
Monica's in North end: If you are ever short of salt in your body, go and have their lobster ravioli
Dali:Way overpriced and sloppily excuted tapas
Bartley's Burger Shack: Juicy and thick but needs a couple pinches of salt/seasoning
Brown Sugar:quite good
Radius: good but for that price, I should hope so.
Campo di Fiori:It was ok, but the regular one w tomato and basil used canned, way too tart tomatoes and dried basil sprinkles.
Mike's Pastry's: pretty good cannoli's
el pelon: lacked cilantro and onion, and hence taste in just about everything
Noodle street:Oh man, you can get much better for 4 dollars cdn in Toronto
Audobon: Supposedly one of the best burgers?...hmm not quite Their roasted potatoes and spicy ketchup was kinda interesting
I admit, I am very picky and have had all sorts of good food over europe, china, SF, and Toronto but really expected more from Boston. can anyone recommend some true hidden gems? The places which serve truly tasty, creative food? something which I can't easily whip up at home? Or find easily in other cities? at Reasonable prices?
