    Marliave is a great little place in downtown Boston (close to Park Street and Downtown Crossing stops) which has dollar oysters every day from 4-6 and 9-10 pm. In addition, they have an inventive cocktail list. Their regular menu looks fine, but honestly I always go for the oysters. The whole place is infused with a Prohibition-y retro feeling.

    Quincy Market offers so much food that it's really hard to decide what to eat. My personal Highlight: "Boston Pretzel" ;)

    Dumpling Cafe Inc

    2 reviews

    Their dumplings here are excellent, but don't expect ANY service at all here. Food wise, they serve a lot more than just dumplings, you can find many variety of eateries from casual snacking (xiao long bao) to a full blown meal Chinese meal with a Taiwanese twist. We got the pork and leek steamed dumplings and Taiwanese pan fried dumplings, ...

    Amazing ice cream and a perennial local favorite. This little, crooked building is always packed during the dinner months with tourists and locals alike.

    Giacomo's Restaurant

    11 reviews

    Small place but arguably one of the most popular at North End. There is almost always a wait outside the tiny door, the interior is crowded but customers get to be up and close with the kitchen staff and see how the chefs operate. The waiters yells out your order to the kitchen, quite a sight and experience. The food ...

    Maria's Pastry Shop

    4 reviews

    Just a turn from the packed mikes bakery, but not already pre filled cannolis and just as good. If you're not down to wait in line at mikes, walk a block and get a cannoli from Maria's instead.

    The most creative froyo place! They always have different interesting, homemade flavors everyday. Sometimes there are rose flavors, graham cracker flavors, blue-berry oreo flavors, literally endless combinations that differs from day to day. The toppings are extremely fresh and the service staff couldn't be nicer. If you are a froyo fan, BerryLine is here to impress.

    Anna's Taqueria

    6 reviews

    YUMMM! I miss this place so much! The burritos are AWESOME and so filling yet feel healthy due to the fresh veggies they use. I am a vegetarian, and often veggie burritos seem lacking (like they're missing an ingredient). At Anna's, they use completely fresh veggies which they chop right in front of you for your burrito. They have vegetarian ...

    If you love BBQ, just a straight up delicious meal, or a good deal, Soulfire is the place for you. By far the best ribs and fried chicken you can get up here in the north. You can get a huge platter of a meat, two sides, and a moist block of cornbread for just $15. I cannot say enough ...

    Ernesto's Pizza

    2 reviews

    Ernesto's is a great local favorite where you can get unique combinations with a paupers paycheck. While the "$5 a slice" price tag may seem like a stretch to be considered a bargain meal, you actually you get two large slices (a quarter of a pie equivalent). A complete steal if you ask me, but worthless if it tastes like ...

    Galleria Umberto

    2 reviews

    Yes, the lines are long. And yes, the ambiance is less than impressive. But the cuisine at Galleria Umberto is oh-so-delicious and so incredibly cheap! I will also admit that I'm usually a crispy, thin-crust kind of gal, but it didn't take long for me to fall in love with the Sicilian style, thick, chewy dough smothered in sauce and ...
