Despite the nickname of Bean Town, Boston cuisine continually proves itself to be full of diverse flavors. The wide array of culinary offerings reflect the culture and spirit of the city. During the month of January, Boston is home to several food festivals. KO Pies at the Shipyard hosts an annual Australia Day celebration, which celebrates the unique Australian cuisine. This January 26th event boasts a menu that includes meat pies, steak Sanga, and a chicken “Schnitty” burger (a serious chicken sandwich, topped with items like prawns, cheese, and gravy). Tim Cushman’s Bronwyn Restaurant hosted Pig Week through January 28th, which consisted of $22 daily specials that featured a different part of the pig.
Bostonians can always find pop-up restaurant events that feature foods like falafel tacos, but there are plenty of restaurants that offer unique spins on classics all year long. For example, Gracie’s Ice Cream in Union Square incorporates cereal into several of their flavors. This quaint shop offers bowls of cereal and milk (soy milk optional) for $3, in addition to the egg cream and ice cream flavors already on their menu. Tiger Mama restaurant recently unveiled a brunch menu that includes a bacon-cheddar waffle with Thai chili butter.
No matter what the craving, Boston’s foodie scene has something for everyone.
