Last Saturday, I learned how to shuck oysters. Being a fan of oysters (both raw and cooked), I’m glad to have finally crossed it off my to-do list when I took shucking lessons at North End Fish Market in Boston (formerly called Mercato del Mare).
At NEFM, lessons are only offered on Saturday afternoons from 1-3pm, reservations are not required. Due to small space, the staff can teach groups of five people or smaller at each time. The lesson takes about 15 minutes, longer if you decide to shuck more oysters. You just pay what you shuck and eat. Last Saturday, …
Last weekend, I tried a fairly new restaurant in Brookline – Gyu-Kaku – that had opened its first location in Mass. back in April 2013. Gyu-Kaku is a chain restaurant with over 700 locations worldwide and features Japanese Barbecue cuisine. In short, it’s indoor grilling. Customers can order raw, specially-marinated a la carte items from the menu and cook the food themselves – a fun concept and dining experience. The staff are helpful and will explain the process and cook time to newcomers. Besides barbecue, there are also various cooked appetizers, rice and noodle dishes that you can order. I …
Happy First Day of Summer! Earlier this month, I went to Provincetown (or P-town) for the first time to attend my dear friend’s bachelorette party. P-town is a quaint beach town located at the extreme tip of Cape Cod, Massachusetts and is known for being a vacation destination for tourists.
It’s always a good idea to order fresh seafood when you find yourself in the cape. While strolling down Commercial Street (a main street for shopping, artists, entertainment, and countless cute dogs) and figuring out where to grab lunch, a local suggested the Lobster Pot restaurant, featuring a waterfront view. Lobster Pot is what I …
One of my favorite restaurants in Boston is Island Creek Oyster Bar in Kenmore Square. It is currently ranked #2 top restaurant on TripAdvisor. Being a seafood lover, I really appreciate the fresh and delicious seafood dishes served at ICOB. I also love the beach theme and sleek decor of the restaurant; the back wall is made entirely of oyster shells! Plus, the service is top-notch every time. Everyone should start the ICOB experience with raw oysters. The signature type is Island Creeks, which are known for their briny taste and sharp flavor. There’s usually a dozen variety of raw oysters …
It’s been two weeks since I returned to the states from my Asia trip and I already miss the good eats there. I’ve already covered Beijing and Guangzhou in Part 1. For today’s blog post, I’ll give you a virtual food tour of Hong Kong and Macau. Formerly a British colony, Hong Kong is now a special administrative region of China, and its fast-paced culture and city life makes it parallel to New York City. Macau, a former Portuguese colony, is the other special administrative region of China, known as the “Las Vegas of Asia.” Both very different areas, but overflowing …
I’m finally back from my blogging hiatus, after spending almost a month in Asia! I traveled to Beijing, Hong Kong, Macau, Taipei, and Guangzhou to sightsee, visit family, and of course, enjoy all the delicious food. It was my first time visiting mainland China (Beijing and Guangzhou) and Taipei, Taiwan. Today’s blog – part 1 – focuses on some good eats in Beijing and Guangzhou. Beijing is the capital of China and historic site where the Great Wall, Tiananmen Square, and Forbidden City are located. Guangzhou is the third-largest Chinese city (after Shanghai & Beijing), located in Southern China.
The number one must-eat food in …
A trip to Livorno must include a visit to the Mercato Centrale. For foodies and food lovers this is the place to go! The Mercato is massive where you can find everything you would ever need from household items, dog food, seafood, meats, cheeses, breads, wine, fresh fruits and vegetables and anything else you can imagine! Everything was the freshest you could get!
Cruise ships even give tours to their passengers of the Mercato as I would see them often on their tour. But outside the Mercato there are still more vendors selling everything from buttons to boots and even more …
