About Food in Boston

"Chowdah" may be a New England delicacy, but it's not the only thing that has Bostonians drooling. Good eats are everywhere in the city, even bars.

Check out restaurants along the harbor for some classic seafood dishes like clam chowder and oysters. If that's not your thing, treat yourself to Italian food in Boston's "Little Italy" in the North End, where you can also stop by Paul Revere's former home. Come on an empty stomach because portions are a plenty and desert is a must.

If you crave more sweets, check out the array of cupcake stores and bakeries in the city, like Sweet in Harvard Square and Georgetown Cupcake on Newbury Street.

On-the-go? No problem. Food trucks are everywhere, just be sure to check the City of Boston's website or Twitter to track the trucks around you.

After all, nothing says happiness better than a full stomach.

What to Eat?

Make sure you grab Italian Food in the North End (canolis at Mike's Pastries are a must), food truck feasts (Roxy's Gourmet Grilled Cheese, Clover, The Taco Truck, etc.) and at least one cup of chowdah from any seafood place by the Harbor.
