Today, we wanted to try seafood especially the lobster. Recently, there was an article indicating that the price of lobster in Boston has dropped. Therefore, it would be worthwhile trying lobsters. We went to Copley Square and decided to try Legal Sea Foods. A 52-year-old seafood restaurant chain was one of the popular brands in Boston or even the United States.

A friend of mine introduced me to Chipotle Mexican Grill that is somewhat a fast food chain outlet. It has many outlets in the United States. I came to love the brand so much that I missed this since I returned home.

Simple & Fit Blueberry Harvest Grain 'N Nuts® Combo
iHop, one of America's favourite restaurant chains, is best known for their signature pancakes, omelettes, and other breakfast specialties.

There was a  Korean Food joint at Cambridge. My friends and I decided to try something different - Korean Food. The restaurant was served with very friendly and helpful servers. 

Located at the basement, you would not have difficulty in finding the restaurant when you could smell the delicious barbecue meat.

A crepe is a thin pancake which are especially popular in France. We went to Mr Crepe to try out the savoury crepe that was calling us to patronize for the last couple of weeks. The restaurant was simple and mainly self-served. After dining, customers are encouraged to return the cutlery to Return Point.

Recommended by some forum web sites, I chose to try James Hook and Co. This restaurant received many good reviews of its lobster rolls.

Gourmet Dumpling House was highly recommended by a friend who stayed in Boston for seven years. We tried to patronise the restaurant more than once but could not get a seat. The restaurant was forever crowded. The queue would go beyond the restaurant to the street. One good suggestion was to go earlier before the crowd comes.

I had a craving for mango sago dessert since I returned home. We went to Honeymoon Dessert (满记甜品) for my dessert. Usually, this dessert place was very crowded with people during weekday nights and weekends. We came on a weekday afternoon and there were very few people. It would be a good time to have dessert when every one else were working.

We ordered the Banana Pancake, Mango Pomelo & Sago Tofu Pudding with Sweet Soup,  and 
Durian in Vanilla Sauce with Ice-cream.

The Banana Pancake came with an interesting dough-like skin with lots of whipped cream and a piece of banana. How great it is. It has a sweet taste of course. However, for those who love sweet and lots of whipped cream, you would love it. This dessert is too sweet and sinful to me.

Instead of the traditional Mango Pomelo & Sago, I ordered myself a Mango Pomelo & Sago Tofu Pudding with Sweet Soup. The dessert was great. I loved the chewiness of the sago balls. The mango was a little sour. I wonder if it was meant to complement the sweetness of the soup. The tofu pudding or bean curd melted into your mouth. It was a good dessert.

The Durian in Vanilla Sauce with Ice-cream was another interesting dessert. The dessert was served with authentic durian. If you love durians, you would like to give it a try. It would be just nice for those who have sweet tooth.

PAUL had been in Singapore for quite some time already, however, I was always unable to try it. The queue was always never ending during the weekends and weekday nights. In the end, I just gave up trying. I was reminded that I had seen this bistro place whilst travelling at Paris. I might have missed this. I wished I could try the bistro place in Paris to see if they tasted the same in Singapore.

We dined at PAUL on a weekday tea time. Instead of ordering tea, we ordered lunch. We ordered a roast chicken thigh, waffle with chocolate syrup and whipped cream, croissant, choc croissant and a steak. Too much food? Well, since we got a seat at PAUL's, why not try as much as we could.

The croissants arrived first. The choc croissant was the same as any other choc croissants we had anywhere. As for the plain croissant, I liked it very much. A light buttery taste with a little marmalade and butter was delightful. If I was not sharing with someone else, I would have eaten the entire croissant myself.

Then the roasted chicken thigh was served. The thigh was well cooked and the meat was tender. The carrots and baked potatoes were delicious too. Though the thigh was tender, it was a little salty. On the overall, it was great.

The steak was far more superior than the chicken thigh. I enjoyed having the steak more than the chicken. The medium steak was tender and the seasoning was well prepared. I am drooling even now as I wrote my blog.

The waffle was great and normal. There was nothing special about the waffle that differentiates from other similar food.

PAUL was indeed a good place for tea and lunch times. I would love to try more of its delicious bakery. I think Hokkaido Pullman Bakery would be its strong competitor too.

During lunch time, the restaurant - Ramen Santouka was buzzing with people. There were a lot of people queuing to have the delicious ramen.
