Blackbelly Market is the hot new restaurant in Boulder and for good reason. It is tasty and a fun place to go. I reviewed earlier in the year. Well right next door they opened Black Belly Butcher Shop. You can get all their incredible meats to take home and cook yourself. Even better, there is also breakfast and lunch counter service where you can get killer breakfast burritos and amazing lunch sandwiches. I love the Egg, Cheese and Tater Tot Burrito. And the House Made Bologna Sandwich on Jalapeno Cheddar Bread is amazing.
Centro Latin Kitchen & Refreshment Palace (Don’t you love that name!) is real deal Latin Food. I had the Fish Tacos which were excellent. So was the tuna and shrimp. And this place is so much more. They make great drinks, have a killer Happy Hour, their outdoor seating is a lot of fun and they are on the West End of the Pearl Street Mall. The coolest area of downtown. Great spot.
I love great food and I love a hole in the wall. When I have found both then it is a good day. Tucked in a food court on The Hill in Boulder Colorado is Thai Avenue. This is a family run operation and very authentic. I hear their curries are amazing but I get the Pad Kee-Mow (Drunken Noodle) every time because I love it so much.Thick rice noodles stir-fried with mixed vegetable. Check it out. You will not be disappointed.
The creators of Snarf,s which is a pretty tasty sandwich shop in Boulder, have opened Snarfburger in a shack in downtown Boulder. It’s a definite gut bomb but if you are in the mood the Double Cheeseburger is damn good. And they recently opened a second location in Chicago.
On the East side of Boulder’s Pearl Street Mall is the East End. Used to be not much but now it rivals the hip West End (which is on the other side of the mall). Cured is a wonderful gourmet grocery store & cafe with hand-picked cheese, charcuterie, & wine. Really incredible. I had the salami and cheese sandwich and it was fantastic. This hipster store shares it’s space with Boxcar Coffee which is pretty great as well and they even have a mini liquor store in the back with a tasty selection of beers and wine. It’s a fun one stop shop. They also recently just opened a second location on the West End.
Sarma is in Sommerville, MA. Which is a hip area of Boston and near Cambridge too. The atmosphere is wonderful, casual and fun. And the food is full of flavor and absolutely delicious. This place is a must.
Some of the best food is in a hole in the wall kind of place. Yankee Lobster in the Seaport area of Boston is just that. What a great joint right on the water. The food is super fresh. I had the Lobster Roll and Fries and was super happy. Nothing fancy here. Have a great time.
Now this is a Lobster Roll. B & G Oysters is a casual and very well run seafood joint in the South End neighborhood of Boston. This is a Barbara Lynch Joint and all her places are quite good. I love this place and I love the South End.
Tucked in Boston’s North End, which is way cool, is one of the best seafood joints I have been to anywhere. Neptune Oyster. Just go. It’s a must. It’s on a cool little street in a killer neighborhood. It’s small, cozy and the seafood is fresh and outrageous. We feasted on Stone Crabs, Oysters, Octopus and Clam Chowder. Crazy good and fun. But they don’t take rezys. Open for lunch and dinner. We got there for lunch a half hour before it opened to be sure to get seats.
