Trip Report Foodie Tour in Boston!

Jump to last reply

We signed up for the Chinatown Food tour with http://www.bostonfoodtours.com/

They offer a North End Tour as well - I grew up outside of Boston and felt that I knew the North End a little bit but knew nothing of Chinatown since the surrounding area was a bit dangerous (30+ years ago) when I was a teen. So I picked the Chinatown tour for something different....

It was fabulous! Our tour guide was Jackie, she is half Japanese and is married to a man that is half Chinese. She lives right in the area. She was bubbly, knowledgable and entertaining! We got a history of Chinatown while sitting in a beautiful park at the beginning of the Boston Greenway (including some tidbits about the Chinatown gate). We sampled pork, pasteries & bubble tea at different places; visited a pharmacy and grocery store and ended with a Dim Sum lunch (included).

I never had Dim Sum and I have to say it was a great experience (Jackie did all the ordering). My husband has spent quite a bit of time in Asia and said he felt it was so authentic that we could have been in Singapore.

Jackie gave us a printout of all the places that we visited , a list of restaurant for our return visit (and their specialties) and answered all of our questions. She has a blog which includes a recipe for a homemade nut/spice mixture that she brought for us to try (really yummy) - http://jacquelinechurch.com/nuts-to-you-pin-this-recipe-for-chinese-five-spice-nuts/

I won't give away any of the details, but this is a really, really great tour! We will probably try the North End tour in the future as well....

We then walked back along the Greenway. Boston has done a great job transforming this space. It was a busy end of summer Saturday and there were food trucks everywhere! If we hadn't just eaten, I would have snacked at a few. I guess I didn't realize how big these have become in Boston! One had a line of at least 30 people!
