BOSTON DIARIES: NEPTUNE OYSTER

Neptune 1

Last year in October, I spent a weekend in Boston with my mom. I've finally come around to actually reviewing some of the places we went to. In the next three days I will post some great places to eat in Boston. Here is the first.

Neptune Oyster


Before my mom moved back to Colombia last year, she came to the US for a month. She visited some cousins and then she came to stay with me for a week. I met her at the bus station in Boston and we spent a beautiful fall weekend there. Boston is one of my favorite cities ever. I love Boston so very much. I also love good food. I am a foodie, I should say. I had never had lobster rolls before so I needed to get one while we were in Boston. I read recommendations, and Neptune Oyster was right up there in the list. We went and had to put our names on the hour long waitlist. But guess what? It was worth it. It was a spectacular lobster roll and even the fries were delicious! I am dying to go back to Boston and when I do, I truly want to go back to that marvelous place. 

If you find yourself craving lobster in Boston, you know where to go. Actually, if you find yourself craving SEAFOOD you know where to go. The menu was full of yummy suggestions, but we just wanted the warm lobster roll that night! Expect a wait and expect to pay a little more than usual (quality stuff).

STYLE: RACHEL GREEN

Rachel Green


Sometimes I realize, damn I really should not be watching another episode of... oh it's happening. FRIENDS is, as I may have mentioned before, one of my favorite TV shows. It's a classic. And I am in love with everything Rachel and Monica wore in the first two or three seasons! It's all the good part of the 90s. So I made a little something silly for y'all. A few outfits I could see Rachel wearing back then.

EATING AROUND PARIS

Candelaria 3 Candelaria 1 Candelaria 2 Candelaria 4

Candelaria

I've definitely talked about Candelaria. I even wrote a whole post about how much I love that place (here). I think I went back once this summer, but I wanted to go back in August and absolutely forgot to. Good thing I'll be moving back to Paris in January. They've made changes, and the tacos have gotten a bit more expensive (still not that expensive though!) but I still love it. I go even though I hate the idea of getting there when there is a crowd. It's SO worth it. Oh, and look, that's my name on hot sauce. I'm so hot (I'm actually pretty mild, but delicious). 

Fuxia 1 Fuxia 2

Fuxia 

I recently wrote a review for this restaurant. I usually think about how long a person is staying in Paris, and where I would want to take them. If you're staying in Paris for less than a week, maybe the ideal thing is to stick with everything French - French pastries in the morning, street crepes for lunch, French restaurants for dinner drinking French wine... but if there's no rush, if we're just going for a nice, simple yet really good lunch and you'll be around for a while, I might say "Hey let's go to Fuxia." The style is Italian and I've never been disappointed. 

Maoz

Maoz 

Kady enjoying falafel from Maoz. Yo, these exist in the US too. Not expensive, and very yummy. I don't have much to say about it. I like that you can add your own ingredients (I like control over my food, thanks) and even though I, myself, only get these maybe once a year (too many places to try, I can't repeat that often) it's always a nice backup plan if anything ;) 

Cafeotheque 2 Cafeotheque

La Caféothèque 

Oh, those few days it was actually hot in August... I went out with my dad one sunny Sunday. I was in a crappy mood (I know it happens often. There's not much to do when that happens, though) and didn't feel like talking or doing much. I had a book, and my journal and we sat in la Cafeotheque and ordered two iced coffees. My dad didn't quite enjoy his because he doesn't drink black coffee and adding sugar to iced black coffee is not great. It annoyed me that he didn't get the iced latte but I guess you're never too old to make mistakes. It also annoyed me that he forgot his book so I felt guilty about reading while he did nothing on his iphone. But I did it anyway. I definitely want to go back. Their shop is very interesting, they have tons of things to try, and their pastries looked quite delicious! 

Fumbally

(The Fumbally – this is in Ireland but I wanted to post this amazing latte anyway... I love and miss you, the Fumbally... so so much!)


And that officially ends the posts about Paris for the next three months!! Until I move back to Paris in January, my blog posts will be about life in Northampton, MA, or travels and restaurants around the US, and mostly about my last semester at Smith College.
