(Steamed Chicken in Hainanese style)

A restaurant located in Chinatown, was easily accessible via the T lines - Chinatown or Downtown Crossing. Penang Malaysian's interior was a Malaysian-inspired "wooden hut" design to feel of the ambiance of a Malay village. The restaurant was always crowded. You may expect to wait for seats.

(Thai Lettuce Wraps)

Cheesecake Factory started from a humble cheesecake shop in Detroit in 1940s. Everyone loved its original Cheesecake recipe. 30 years later, the success of Cheesecake Factory has grown in more than 170 locations in the United States.

 (Burrito Bowl)

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.

(Crab Cake)

A 52-year-old seafood restaurant chain, Legal Sea Foods, is one of the popular brands in Boston or even the United States.

(Steamed Pork Dumplings with Leek)

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. 

(Lobster Roll)

James Hook and Co restaurant received many good reviews of its lobster rolls. The restaurant was about a 15-min walk from South Station (Subway station). It was a standalone building with a huge billboard saying, James Hook and Co. 

(John Kennedy III burger)

Highly recommended by my Professor, I yearned to try Bartley's Gourmet burgers since the last two trips to Cambridge, Boston. It was shared that it was THE place to go when you were in Cambridge. The restaurant, famous for its burgers and rowdiness, had long queue lines all year round. I could hear servers shouting their orders to the cooks. 

(Beef Noodles Soup)
Located near Porter Square, Sugar and Spice was one of my favourite Thai restaurants in Boston. Introduced by a close friend of mine, I become a frequent customer at Sugar and Spice. Porter Square is a neighbourhood in Cambridge and Somerville and is located between Harvard and Davis Square stations.

(Devilled Egg)

Executive Chef Michael Scelfo at Russell House Tavern delivers a menu of modern interpretations of American classics. The restaurant was a wonderful place for gatherings for all occasion at Harvard Square.


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