When you visit the USA, one of the first things you will notice is the food. It is home to fried chicken, buffalo wings and hamburgers, as well as traditional favourites such as pumpkin pie, turkey and cranberry sauce, which are always at the Thanksgiving dinner table. Whilst staying in Boston we ate in during the evenings, but for breakfast and snacks during the day we got to try lots of classic American treats. I thought I’d show you some photos of the food we ate in today’s post.
Chocolate chip and walnut pancakes at Buddy’s Diner, Somerville
Buddy’s Diner is a little independent restaurant that is located in Somerville, MA. We went there after reading some fantastic reviews on Google and it did not disappoint! As it was my first breakfast in America, I absolutely had to order pancakes. The chocolate chip and walnut variety were absolutely delicious!
Ben & Jerry’s ice cream
For a snack in the afternoon, we went to Ben & Jerry’s for ice cream. The Boston branch is located on Newbury Street and they have a huge range of flavours in store. Mum and I shared a bowl because the portion sizes were so big and we had scoops of Cookie Dough, Mint Chocolate Chunk and Caramel Chew Chew.
Cocktails at the Cheers Bar
This one isn’t food related, but I couldn’t not include our Cheers Bar drinks in this post. My Dad ordered one of the local beers and my Mum and I chose matching non-alcoholic mixed fruit cocktails.
Granola parfait at Au Bon Pain
We went to Au Bon Pain for a healthier breakfast on our second day. We ordered granola parfaits and fresh fruit.
Chocolate orange cake at L.A. Burdick Chocolate Café, Harvard Square
The L.A. Burdick Chocolate Café was marked on my Cambridge, MA map, so we stopped there for afternoon tea when we visited the Harvard University campus. The café felt very nostalgic with it’s colourful stripy walls and the cakes were absolutely delicious!
Takeaway pizza from a local pizzeria in Somerville
On our last night in Boston, we ordered takeaway pizza. It was just what we needed after a busy day of exploring!
We ate some really yummy food in Boston. America certainly knows how to do desserts!
