I guess I should just start a series of posts called "Points of Interest for Your Tastebuds", because every time I tell you about my travels, I somehow always bring it around to the food. What does this says about me? I have no idea. But since we're friends, & friends help each other out, I have to tell you about 2 fun food stops you really must see if you visit Boston or NYC.
First up is Modern Pastry in Boston's North End. This has become one of our favorites over the years when we go back to Boston to see the family.
This is a family-owned Italian Bakery that has been in business for over 70 years. They're famous for their homemade authentic cannoli & let me tell you--they're delicious & worth the wait in that long line that sometimes goes out onto the street. They make your cannoli to order with your choice of fillings & then tie them up in an adorable box with the little red baker's twine. I, for one, just can't resist that.
Chocolate dipped with chocolate cream? Yes, please.
And then, in New York, there's the Magnolia Bakery-- a.k.a., a little slice of Cupcake Heaven in the heart of Manhattan. We came across the Rockefeller Center location as we were walking around town, and it's just as adorable as it is delicious, so yes, I highly recommend.
See what I mean?
Just a little FYI for you should you be visiting one of these great cities soon. So, check these places out. Your tastebuds will thank you. Your thighs, well, that's another story.
