:: Jetset :: Boston – Neptune Oysters

Pardon the radio silence, it’s been a crazy hectic March. After the purse debacle, Mr. P flew off to HK / Samui for a friend’s wedding leaving me alone with C for almost 9 days! He was barely home when we hosted one of my bestest girlfriends. I’ve also just had the busiest week at work.

After all that was done, we found ourselves on a girls’ weekend to Boston on the graveyard (2.40am) express. Not quite jetsetting, more amtraking.

So… Boston. Reminds me a little of Europe (London); the architecture, the cobblestone streets, the huge park in the middle of the city.

First things first, the food was AH-MAZING!!! We did not have a bad meal all weekend.

Neptune Oyster came across highly recommended by my colleagues (none of them Bostonians). While I was sure it is very touristy, since we were playing the part we gave it a go…

Local (Massachusetts) oysters. Since I don’t do oysters, I’ll just have to trust Shan’s words. These were fantastic; fresh, no condiments needed. At USD 2.70-2.80 a pop, it was pretty cheap too.

Our shared littleneck clams starters. Again super fresh and the broth was so yummy, we asked for bread to mop it up.

A plate of VERY LARGE AND JUICY scallops. These were my favourite. The pairing with duck and Brussels sprouts were a touch odd but surprisingly complementary.

And finally the lobster roll. This was good with very additive handcut chips. 20130330-174142.jpg
